    Obviously a lot of people would say London as it is the capital city of England and one of the largest cities in the world. There is a lot going on but the prices are not good by the way. EXPENSIVE

    If I did move out from London it would have to be to another big city. I can't imagine living in a rural area.

    Following these criterias:
    -Good Nightlife
    -Lots of clubs and parties going on
    -Good sports equipment (in the campus)
    -Lots of social clubs to join
    -Not a dangerous city (low crime)
    -Good variety of races and nationalities (students)


    ...
    Is there any city with a very nice and social campus??

    PS: derby and bath look good.

    SWANSEA- fills the critieria no problem

    amazing night life..the mile, wind street, woodys..ridiculous amount of parties during freshers week

    Sports wise theres varsity, huge uni sport centre..even got some a student there that plaus for the welsh rugby team

    relatively safe low crime..locals very friendly, can happily leave my car unlocked for a night without little worry, plus the location is stunning..city and beach in one place

    REAL big mix of welsh, english..irish students, plus a large international base with study abroad options etc..

    swansea is where it's at

    You plank, Warwick university is in Coventry which is a city. I implied that pretty strongly in my previous post but I see it was wasted on you. Post #11 by op asks about a campus in a city-- Warwick is both. So get your facts straight and stop acting like a smart ass because you clearly are not by your comments.
    Haha sorry, you clearly are just too intelligent for me. Unfortunately, I live in Leamington, and as anyone familiar with the region will know, that even though described as a 'city uni', the main campus of Warwick is in a pretty random place, just outside of the city on it's fringes. Hardly what can truly be called a 'city university' in any meaningful sense of the word. Plus, the city your talking about is cov, so its hardly braggable. Ass.

    Get better information next time, rather than relying on Wikipedia

    Oh what was that I hear? Warwick uni is in Coventry? Oh yes, it's a city you quietly admit. If it's in a city, it's in a city it doesn't matter where and a 10 minute drive to the city centre hardly makes it rural-- if Nottingham can be classed as a city uni by some, I dont see why Warwick cant. I dont hear people from Canley saying they live in the country by any stretch. So you were obviously wrong the whole time you pillock.

    I don't care where you live, you obviously can't understand the geography or read a thread.

    Errr, but it isn't. I think the guy you're quoting made that pretty clear.

    Also, you might want to calm down a little.

    Warwick uni is in Coventry, quite clearly.
    Read his posts in this thread. I find his attitude condescending. I am totally calm :p:

    what's so good about newcastle??
    WELL!!

    -LOTS of nightlife, two big unis, and a massive college. There are loads of clubs, bars etc.
    -Nice places to live. jesmond is really smart, heaton is pretty nice
    -Not very rough (contrary to popular belief)
    -Everything is close, half an hour walk max
    -Really cheap. The south is so expensive in comparison. A room in the nicest part is max. going to be £70 a week.

    It is generally just a pretty cool place, and the coast and countryside are really easy to get to too.

    10 minute drive to the city centre? Yeah, all those students with cars yeah? The OP was asking for city uni's, and when did I say that any of those uni's were city uni's? Sort it out mate
