Sheffield is a great city which has a decent uni too......and York, although that might be a bit quiet for you (livelier than Durham tho)

Bristol - A*AA or A*A*B (AAB Contextual) - lots of extras like pro-bono work, new moot court, and study abroad option.s Great city - music, festivals, pubs/clubs, food. Cheaper than London, and has all the 'city' stuff without being enormous/lonely.

Course info - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/2020/law/

Law School info - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/law/study/ugdegrees/faq/

PS. There is no 'best' Law School - only the one that suits you, and your grades, interests, and needs best.

Whilst Bristol is a good university city I would treat applying there with caution. This year Bristol University has been placing students to live in Newport 30 miles away so take that into account if you intend applying there. Cardiff is a very lively city and wont be too expensive and might fit your needs. In terms of cheaper places to live the North of England and Wales tend to be the cheaper areas to live. Places like Lancaster and Aberystwyth tend to be very affordable but might be too quiet for you. Swansea is cheap with good nightlife. Bristol and Exeter are nice but a bit on the expensive side and both seem to have accommodation issues this year.. Nottingham, Leicester and Leeds are not too far from Birmingham and Manchester and Liverpool are bigger cities with good nightlife..

This was very temporary accommodation given to a small number of late applicants/Clearing while the 'no shows' and 'drop-outs' of the first few weeks shake-down, and rooms in Bristol become available. Please stop scaremongering.

The fact is it shouldnt have happened. You shouldnt have taken on more places than you had rooms. Try telling the 25 who were placed 30 miles away in Newport or the 40 placed 16 miles away in your veterinary college it was scaremongering. It was your university who created the problem not me and I will continue to raise it rather than for somebody to suffer this again. Bristol university was happy to overbook places and offer accommodation 30 miles away and you try to defend it. They put profit before students and potential need to be aware of your policies and the fate they might suffer. People need to be aware of Bristol University's behaviour. How are they going to manage in second and third years. What other universities are taking on more students than there are places on the grounds that in a few weeks there might be places in that city. You cannot justify your university's behaviour and you know it. Here is a thread with your potential students feelings. Tell those affected it is just scaremongering

Do get real. EVERY University will end up with a few students in temp accommodation at the start of term - often sharing rooms in the nearest Premiere Inn, or similar. This isnt new, unusual - or unique to Bristol. The students involved were all non-guaranteed-accommodation applicants - Insurance places or Clearing applicants, and they all knew that they were not guaranteed Uni housing. Your big-drama-posts really are a bit silly.

Nice to see how little Bristol university cares about students being placed 30 miles away. At least prospective students will be aware of what they can expect from you. 65 students not having accommodation is just a few in the eyes of an admissions tutor in Bristol. It speaks for itself

It was 25 - and is probably less by now. And for info, I no longer work at Bristol.
Do grow up.

Wrong 25 at Newport. Also 40 in the veterinary college 16 miles away. When students go to college they expect to have somewhere to live. It is an issue. If you were a parent or student would you be happy being placed that far away. Students can make their own minds up but it is very important they are aware of potential pitfalls rather than someone trying to cover a universities behaviour up. If their policy backfires on the university so be it.
