Bradford is known for its multicultural society and boasts food from all over the world plus theatre, dance, art and of course many British traditions such as fish and chips and cricket. The city also hosts the Bradford International Film Festival, Animation Festival, and Saltaire Festival. In 2009 Bradford became the first UNESCO City of Film in the World.
Mirroring the city's love of arts and entertainment the University of Bradford has several centres open to students and the public. The Tasmin Little Music Centre host orchestras, bands, musicals and singers whilst the Theatre in the Mill is renowned for touring companies and performers, workshops in directing, acting and play-writing plus a theatre group that performs its plays several times a year. Gallery II welcomes contemporary arts and the Gallery and Craft Centre displays both professional and student works of art.
The Students' Union, UBU is located in the brand new development Student Central and has its own shop, bar, radio station (RamAir), cinema and several advice bureaus.

12 University of Bradford Reviews
Great facilities on the campus and in the halls. It's a shame that I was put with quite possibly the worst flatmates in existence! But the warden team is always there to support you with any issues. The wifi was very stable but very slow at times and does cost a lot to upgrade to a faster speed
I've been here for 5 years and loved it! Aspects of the University have improved in that time such as the facilities but the extra curricular elements still have a way to go. The University has a strong family feel to it with students coming from all over the world.
