Errr. No.
I live near Norwich and have visited the UEA many times. One word: Concrete.



Beautiful? Really?
Well up until the age of 18 I lived in Norwich, My parents both attended it - one of which while I was a child so I've been to a few lectures, the library and all over campus many hundreds of times on dog walks and trips to the Sainsbury Centre Art Gallery. - If you want to take a photo of the oldest and least appealing area on an overcast and rainy day then yeah, it's going to look crap. Your photo entirely neglects any of the buildings built after the 1970s or the surrounding countryside.

I could quite easily post some similarly misleading and selective photos of it's nicest aspects on sunny, clear days, maybe get a smiling, beautiful student in shot and photoshop it to death - we all know that's ridiculous. One photo can never explain the entirety of a campus. It's quite obvious that when I said UEA is a beautiful campus I wasn't referring to one specific part of the building.

Then again, I love the brutalistic architecture. I think it's beautiful. 'Beautiful' doesn't mean preserved Georgian architecture to everyone! I prefer the urban jungle that is the inner UEA architecture to the bland homogeneity of say, Greenwich's main buildings. It's much more interesting.

yeah, I'm not entirely sure I'd class it as a campus university - it's a collection of small campuses
still a very nice looking university lol.
Never been inside LSE, but from the outside i looks really nice (I think it was LSE anyway lol maybe it was UCL).

Well from my experience UEA has the nicest campus, everything is in close proximity to each other. A small supermarket, nice stationary shop and bar, a post office with good selection of uni wear, several cafes and the food from the canteen wasn't bad, and the library just next door. Manchester had a much larger student union building with more spacious rooms but it's stationary shop sucked, I got food poisoning from the canteen, not a great selection of uni wear and there was no supermarket/postoffice.

Well seeing as the subject of this thread was not explicitly elaborated,people may do as they please and name in general Universities that well..look the best.
I am sure you will find that harmless.

Manchester

In my opinion it is the ugliest place in England..... it has one nice building at the core but thats it. Its not even a campus anyway.

sorry to offend anyone, i just hate the place.
yeah I agree the entrance/core or whatever u call it looks really nice but the buildings around it dont look to pretty. Eh well still a good uni ^_^

"Campus" is fairly straightforward, though, isn't it?

Clearly not. Bring back the classical education I say...

I'm at Warwick but have never seen any Georgian architecture except that rather dodgy pump room-esque building. Please enlighten me! I would definitely say that it's the nicest campus, though, as I always feel quite 'inspired' by the architecture - especially of the Learning Grid - very futuristic and stylish. I love the ducks and various other thrilling birds, too. Haha :hoppy:
