Bristol is one of the best cities to live in as well as one of the most highly-regarded universities in the country. I feel very privileged to be able to spend 3 years living here and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. There is a perfect balance here, a best-of-all-worlds.

Dreadful place. Institutional dishonesty; useless disability support. self-serving staff. Stay away from this place. If you complain, you'll be on the end of institutional lying and bullying. You need to be mentally strong if you have a problem here as nobody will help you.

I don't spend much time at the SU but the Balloon Bar has amazing food and the Anson Rooms have a lot going on. There's a really wide range of socities so you'll definitely find something you're interested in.

There is no society that doesn't charge a fee entry, in terms of performance, I'm not sure why it's so highly ranked, some lecturers have no idea what they speak about, in terms of internet connection, it is one of the best I have ever had.

The city of Bristol is far better than the actual university itself. Some halls are great whilst others are awful, but most are very overpriced. The SU here is very quiet and doesnt seem to do much

Bristol is a great uni for the arts and humanities (what I do ) - the extra curricular side is immense - from sci- fi soc to your classic drama societies and a wide array of music societies - there is literally something for everyone to get involved with. my first year I wasn't a massive fan of my accommodation (Churchill hall) but I think its partly the luck of the draw - I just had to find my friends through my subject and extra -curriculars. Bristol is a brilliant place to live with about 40 different things going on at once (at least lol) - just remember YOU CAN'T DO EVERYTHING :)

Amazing student union and building, so much going on- they also have gender neutral toilets which I think is really cool. The wifi (eduroam) is everywhere in places you can't even imagine.

Really good uni for facilities and courses. Not great that the student union was closed for half of my time at the uni and it's a bit far away. Because it's not campus based there arent any shops but all the big departments have cafes.

Total lack of academic support, but great academic reputation - so good degrees are harder to get than they need to be but well worth it. Student Union has the campaigning passion of a donkey.
