    In before the Warwick/Loughborough fan brigade. As far as I know - they're both huge and fairly modern campuses, with everything and everyone in one place.

    Although personally, I can't think of anything worse.

    Warwick to strike a best/biggest balance apparently.

    I can tell you one thing - it is not Brunel.

    I'm at Bath which is a campus uni and it's definitely not the biggest, but it is lovely. Also not too far away from the city centre and nightlife, which I've heard Warwick is?

    Yea, It's awful IMO. It's in Uxbridge, which is boring and is just not very nice at all.

    Oh, also, I should probably mention I'm at Sussex.

    The surrounding area is lovely and green, and it really is lovely in the summer - but I'd go as far as to say it's the campus university for people who don't really like campuses. The facilities themselves aren't great because Brighton's only down the road and most people much prefer to go there to eat/drink/shop etc. So if you're looking for a really comprehensive campus in which you can choose to remain in a little university bubble (nothing wrong with that - just doesn't appeal to me personally!) then here probably wouldn't be ideal. I'd visit places and get a feel for them though - I'm not big on campus universities but I compromised to come here. Equally, I couldn't stand UEA!

    I thought I'd landed in hell when I went there for an open day a couple of years ago. :puke: I can't believe they tried to sell it under the guise of being in 'London'. Pffft.

    So yeah - very much agreed!

    I used to go to college near there so I know wag1 lol. It is atrocious, not that I would ever go there anyway lol. The bar was quite cheap if I remember though.

    It technically is in london, and certainly within easy reach, but it's right on the outskirts and, for people not able to atend open days, this is misleading.

    I liked the look of Lancaster's campus. Just Lancaster itself doesn't seem as good.

    Sussex looked really nice when i went there.

    Loads of nice green areas and basic things you need on campus(supermarket/bank etc)

    I've already accepted offer there.

    EDIT:

    It's also in an area of outstanding natural beauty and has really good bus/train links into Brighton.
