How would you rank the top 15 universities (from https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...ables/rankings ) in terms of how beautiful the city/town/campus is?

Here is the top 15:

1. University of Cambridge
2. University of Oxford
3. University of St Andrews
4. LSE
5. Imperial College London
6. Loughborough University
7. Durham University
8. Lancaster University
9. University of Bath
10. UCL
11. University of Warwick
12. University of Exeter
13. University of Birmingham
14. University of Bristol
15. University of Edinburgh

Obviously, this is just for fun and can just be based on images online if you haven't actually been to the universities.

Here is my ranking:

1. St Andrews
2. Cambridge
3. Oxford
4. Edinburgh
5. Bath
6. Durham
7. Exeter
8. Bristol
9. Lancaster
10. UCL
11. LSE
12. Imperial College London
13. Birmingham
14. Warwick
15. Loughborough

Surrey isn't in the top 15 on the league table above so I didn't include it.

Although looking at it now, it is quite nice (but still not to do with the question asked )

I would, without hesitation, put Imperial at the bottom in the beauty ranking.
Even though I only went to Birmingham once for the open day, I have more photographs of its campus than of Imperial's despite actually going to Imperial. I've always wondered what it would look like if they hadn't demolished the Imperial Institute and most of the Royal College of Science.

I don't know why but I quite liked some of Imperial's buildings. I also think the rest of Birmingham put me off the uni's campus. The campus was decent but I really don't like the city centre.

Don’t forget just abandoning the Wye campus which was pretty lovely too.

I agree with your list more than the other one tbh!
Although I’d swap Exeter and out and put it where Durham is, move Birmingham where Imperial is (because I live in bham and I love it😅) and bunk Imperial to the bottom🤷🏾*♀️

I haven't actually been to Exeter so had to try to get a sense of it from images and Google Maps. It did look a nice place but I really like Durham and I've actually been there

I'm really not the greatest fan of Birmingham (sorry ) so that's why Imperial had to be above it.

I’m the opposite! I’ve been to Exeter but not Durham😅
Awwh fair enough, a lot of people aren’t a fan of Birmingham! (i definitely get why ahaha)

Whether you like Birmingham or not....you have to be honest that the campus is beautiful...

I know its not ranked in the top 15, which is why it hasn't been included but I would rank Nottingham quite highly based off it's campus

Birmingham as a city is mostly a **** hole. Warwick on the other hand, is a lovely part of the country to live in.

I'd judge Warwick uni a lot better if it was actually in Warwick. I don't really like the surrounding area and the campus just seems very average.

Yes that's true. The immediate area isn't quite in Warwick city, and is pretty bleak in itself

Dude it’s not THAT bad here hahaha.
I’ve been to Warwick uni many times and although the uni is really nice a lot of ppl actually dislike the area. Plus it’s not even in Warwick!
