Each course has its own building and facilities available, which I found very convinient, especially since I'm doing a combined studies course. As much as it seems obvious, it really did help me get used to everything. Distinguishing those two courses, in different buildings with different staff and group of student helped me broad my horizans. At the end it all is still located in the same city, at the same university, and even campus, but it still makes it all just that much more interesting. The libraries are amazing, lots of space for individual studying as well as access to University's computer labs etc. There are also lots of options with food and drinks at the University, most have student deals as well. I think that if a person is really into a hobby, interest of some sort, sport etc, there is a society available for them to join.
