    I've been offered unconditional from all my universities and I'm now struggling between Hertfordshire and York St John.

    I attended an open day there yesterday and to me it seemed very quiet and the surrounding places seemed equally as quiet. Don't get me wrong, the university and accommodation was gorgeous but i'm still unsure about Hatfield itself. What's the night life like here? Is there a lot to do throughout the day and during weekends? What's Hatfield like? Is it as quiet and desolate as people say?

    It doesn't have the nightlife like a city university would, but its actually alright. The student union club is pretty decent, and batchwoods in st albans and oceana in watford run bus services for UH students on some nights. There are also coach trips to various london clubs that go on, and london is accessible on your own if you wanted.

    Hatfield itself is quiet. But you do have all the basics: cinema, shops, restaurants, takeaways, gyms, and if you drive the surrounding areas have most of the stuff you'd be looking for.

    What exactly are you after in terms of things to do?

    I live in Hertfordshire and the uni is about 15 mins away from me. I dont go the university so I cant comment on what activities there are in the day but generally Hatfield doesn't really have that much going on to be honest.
    There is a small shopping centre near the uni with an odeon and an ASDA nearby too. The town centre is pretty much desolate with nothing there.

    If you want a proper night out I would suggest going to London which is only about 30 mins away by train.

    I am a first year herts student, and personally I love it. It's nice and calm, in terms of night life, we do have cheeky wendsdays in forum hertfordshire. For weekends, London is the best to travel to though.
