Studying at University of Bolton
The University of Bolton is made up of nearly 13,000 students. It is based on one campus in the United Kingdom plus additional campuses located in the United Arab Emirates and Sri Lanka. The university consists of three faculties; Advanced Engineering & Science, Wellbeing & Social Sciences and Art & Media. Additionally there are several research centres based on the campus.
Bolton One is a campus based initiative between the NHS and Bolton Council with the University of Bolton. The new £31 million facility is home to several sports and health programmes that include an Athlete Development Centre, a Health and Wellbeing research unit and a Sports and Spinal Injury Clinic. Also within the building is the main university centre for sport that consists of a 50m climbing wall, swimming pool, gym and fitness centre, studio space and a hydrotherapy pool. For those that want a bit more from their sporting life, there are several sports clubs to have a go at, including mountaineering, basketball, hockey and football, all of which offer taster sessions.
The Students Union is host to many events and social activities and is home to the Loft Bar where students can hang out, watch the big screen plasma TVs, play a game of pool or do some surfing on the WiFi. The Loft serves food and drinks to eat in or take away and is also the place to be for old school discos, beach parties, open mic nights and the weekly quiz. The Students' Union is also home to the Student Advice Unit. Here students can gain access to free advice and counsel on all manner of issues.
Bolton itself has plenty to offer those that venture off campus with plenty of places to relax, restaurants, cafés, watch the Bolton Wanderers play football, visit the Bolton Museum or the Octagon Theatre which produces many plays and contemporary shows and boasts Peter Kay as a former employee in the ticket office. There are also plenty of shops, pubs and nightclubs and it's only a short distance away from great countryside, Liverpool and Manchester.
The University of Bolton is a leader in the UK for its support of students with disabilities and has a dedicated team of individuals to give relevant help. To aid students in studying there are several facilities provided such as group study rooms, 24h computer suites, silent study areas within the library and a Social Learning and Technology Zone.

The campus its self is very modern and clean making it an enjoyable place to study, I joined the hockey team and it has been the most enjoyable thing I have done since I got here. The SU is very modern also but lacks in size making it so most social event have to be done in the study area, I have not been shown any career opportunities at the University, also the internet is all over campus making it very useful.
The Orlando village halls are in very very bad need of a redecorating and preferably redesigning. They don't even have a real oven in the kitchens, it's a table top electric oven that only fits one small pizza or one portion of chips in at a time: this is supposed to feed a flat of 6. The security are over bearing at times and non existent when they are actually needed. The £78 a week rent seems cheap until you realise how truly s**t this place is and that people are paying barely a few pounds more for somewhere that is clean, decorated, spacious and secure. It takes them weeks if not months to respond to most complaints of broken kitchen appliances etc. but barely a day to change a light bulb (they have backwards priorities or don't bother if it costs them more than £5 to fix it). The university itself has a very corrupt management that fire staff without warning for ludicrous, unfounded reasons leaving the students without tutors or support at crucial times in their education.
