    The campus of the actual university is Streatham - St Luke's is 'associated' but separate - Penryn is also associated. Applications are separate so, imho, they are not the 'same' uni.
    The university claims them as their campuses, so I'll go with them over you.

    But even under your claim, Streatham < St Lukes < Penryn

    ?What does that mean? There are no numbers to use inequality signs.

    So you lack imagination as well as an eye for beauty 😉

    I attend Bristol but I don't know why it's up there. Aside from the splendor of the Wills building, it really shouldn't be there.

    No... I just know how to use unequality signs and it is not where you have done.

    Except it has multiple locations. So is not "one campus"

    Streatham is an eye sore.

    St Luke's is somewhat better

    Penryn is all very modern and swish, but lacks character. However like St Andrews, it benefits of having a beach (and a very pretty one at that).
    Penryn also benefits from having one mini Tesco and the excitement of a pauper's funeral.

    Exeter is not nearly as spread out as Oxbridge. The vast majority of its uni buildings are all in one place, with the medical building in a separate building 20 mins away from Streatham (at St Luke's). But a building does not make a campus. Penryn obviously doesn't count as it's 100 miles away, and the people who go there are the weirdos.

    Indeed - the benefits of being in a fairly small town rather than a city means that a university is often more clustered together.

    Are you talking about Exeter? The buildings aren't spread across town, though. They're not in town at all; they're all on one sequestered campus, barring a medical school which ceremoniously calls itself a campus.

    I know - I wasn't suggesting that the university was spread across the town. I was suggesting it's location (e.g. A small town in the middle of nowhere) makes it easier to find an empty space big enough to build a university campus.

    Tie between Oxford and Cambridge, IMO!

    I like Edinburgh campus but it's highly integrated into the city
    There is no Edinburgh campus, it is spread all over the place, you have Old College, New College, George Square, which is nothing to write home about, you have Teviot Row, McEwan Hall, Staff club in Chambers Street, Pleasance, Kings Buildings, Holyrood etc etc. What it does have is one of the better cities around it but frankly, and I say this as a graduate and a resident, it is not , university wise, that stunning.

    Kings at Aberdeen is imho prettier but then one lifts one's gaze and spots the other bits around it, same with St Andrews, some parts are great but again it would be hard to say that either Computer Science of Geosciences were housed in stunning buildings, they are not.

    That's even more offensive. It is a city, not a puny town! Immemorial and proudly so.

    Its location also provides its selling point, the trees and the squirrels, and views of the Devonshire countryside.

    Also helps the university has no history being so new. Not like it's taken centuries to develop and grow around the "city" 😂

    Try as you might, I am not able to be wound up. I already have a mental image of you in stilettos and a tight little black dress, hobbling around looking lost and slightly anxious. My day is made.

    Though, you have said both unis I have attended are visually ****. Won't lie, hurt for a second.
