    Environmentally, both are campuses. Brunel is at the farthest edge of West London, not far from Heathrow. RoHo is slightly further South and West.

    Brunel is a modern university and was quite ugly and functional until relatively recently. RoHo has one very large and beautiful old building, the remainder are generally smaller modern buildings. Brunel is still what you might consider "London" RoHo, despite the University of London tag, isn't really and is quite remote and transport links aren't amazing. The local town is very small.

    Uxbridge is a bit of a dive, but has a sizeable high street with all the facilities you might need. There is direct tube links to central London. There is one club, Liquid, which is the default student place. The locals aren't usually outwardly hostile, and there is no longer a strong military presence in Uxbridge following the closure of RAF Uxbridge.

    Brunel was traditionally engineering, now has some capacity in sports science, but despite what they tell you has never been amazing for other things like Social Sciences. The sports facilities are very good, union is fair, halls are directly on site and within a few minutes walk to lectures. There is usually a very large South Asian student body - "ok" asian students often go to Brunel if their parents don't want them going too far from home.

    RoHo is in the middle of nowhere. It is a very quiet campus. The sports facilities have just received a major overhaul. The union is fair, but night time entertainment is limited. There is traditionally a very large LGBT+ student body - some say the largest of any university in England.

    Some students find RoHo life boring.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
