Having seen many towns and cities in the UK, by extension I have seen many campuses.

Here are my 'inaugural awards' for various features:-

1. The smallest - Newnham University? (west Birmingham) surely! Smaller campus than an average secondary school (ironically the uni is known for teaching courses.)

2. Steepest hill between buildings. Aberystwyth? surely!

3. 'Geographically inaccurate name' - Warwick? (far more in Coventry than Warwick!)

4. Closest dual carriageway to a uni building - Aston in Birmingham?

5. Best clock tower - Uni of Birmingham?

6. Most 'universitised' O2 Academy building - Leicester Uni?

7. The worst place for a non sporty student - Loughborough?

8. Best proximity to a gay village - Manchester Met?

9. Most convenient tram line in a uni campus - Uni of Nottingham?

10. Smallest settlement for a Uni - Bangor?

:rofl: I like the categories.

Bath is probably up there for number 7. It's not 'horrible' to be non sporty but the level of competition is very high.

The road it is on is the boundary between councils. That doesn't compare to the Warwick false advertising.
