I have been accepted to study Computer Science at Nottingham, but having just attended the offer holder day I am somewhat disappointed with the Jubilee campus there. While Uni Park seems full of life, Jubilee feels very isolated and dull. Sure, it is more modern but nothing seems to be going on there. For example on Uni Park there is a big outdoor screen showing movies, or even little things like outdoor chess sets which Jubilee doesn't have make a difference for me. (these are just the impressions I got on the day, which may or may not be accurate).
While the teaching and department of CompSci at Nottingham are fantastic, and academically they are probably the best out of my options, having only 3 subjects taught on the Jubilee campus while everything else is located on Uni Park puts me off going.
Being so segregated from the rest of the university just feels wrong to me and gives me a bad impression of the place. If anyone who has or knows what it is like to live on Jubilee Campus could tell me how it is to live there that would be great.
