Studying at University of Hertfordshire
The University of Hertfordshire won Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2010 and is known as one of the greenest universities in the UK. It is home to 27,500 students and is made up of four faculties; The School of Business, Health and Human Sciences, Science, Technology and Creative Arts and Humanities, Law and Education.
The university has two campuses, De Havilland and College Lane. The De Havilland Campus is home to the new School of Law which has its own full size mock court. The College Lane Campus is only fifteen minutes walk away and is where students will find the majority of facilities and resources including halls of residence, the Learning Resources Centre and the Students' Union.
The Students' Union has two facilities but the one with the biggest impact is the £38 million Forum Hertfordshire, a new venue which has an auditorium, restaurant, bars, cafés, club and a student shop. There are more than one hundred clubs and societies to get involved in as well as Universe, the student magazine and student radio station, Crush FM.
UHArts is run by the university to provide both students and the wider community with affordable arts and events using The Weston Auditorium, UH Galleries, UH Art Collection, UH Recordings and the de Havilland Philharmonic.
The £15 million Sports Village gives students some great facilities that are also used by several professional teams. As well as volleyball, badminton and basketball courts students also have access to a climbing wall with bouldering cave, a 25m pool, indoor cricket and archery hall, gym, football pitches plus rugby and hockey pitches. Unusual for a university is its involvement in Formula Student racing. Its team UH Racing have won many awards and are in the top ten out of 400 universities across the globe, in fact all the F1 British teams have a graduate from the University of Hertfordshire among them.
The University of Hertfordshire wants its students to have the very best and so spends more on facilities than all the other UK universities. Students can also benefit from the long-term links with businesses and its aim to be the leading business-facing university. This relationship with businesses and industry has also helped tailor the courses available so that the skills desired by these employers are directly taught, helping graduates to get great jobs and employers to find amply skilled employees that add value to their organisation.

The facilities of the University is great! Most professors are really helpful and what the best for you. A sports club is worth it (expensive tho) But adds a little entertainment in your life and friendly people. Or any society clubs as Hatfield is soooo boring you should look into clubs and societies. The forum life is great from what all my friends say. The LRC can be loud at times because of students who only came to the university to look man or woman. And yes the WiFi is horrible!!! But lastly it's a decent University and I will recommend it coming from a computer science student.
Haven't had an issues with the university so I cant comment. Wi-Fi cant cope with the load and sometimes completely goes down with no warning for as few hours. Kind of a problem if you're trying to hand in ort get work down.
There are hot girls on the business campus but they have got too much make up and attitude. I think they should drop one of them. The wifi is shit but its good academic wise and yes the forum should change their playlist!
The wifi in the College Lane LRC is horrendous, the connection is intermittent at best and too slow to work with. They will supply you with an ethernet cable if you ask, however your luck will be in if the port on the desk actually works. It feels like the LRC maintenance budget has been completely stripped, else it is visible that there has been complete negligence for service quality checks from the university. Although a lot of new accommodation is available, it is well outside the living budget of any student without parental financial assistance. It is most clear to see that management have set a precedent for new buildings to be built and to ignore any maintenance of existing facilities.
okay let me be clear. the wifi does not work 90 percent of the time. De hav is full of roadmen and stinks of weed..if you go to the de hav library at after 9pm its like a south London council estate..The canteen s decent. the girls will not bang unless your a roadman..if you want to go to the slums go to this uni..
Avoid this university if you are serious about study. The university invests its time and resources into shiny new buildings and state of the art facilities, but what good is any of that if the courses and teaching available inside is next to useless?? (I would go into more detail on how poor some of the courses are here, but there is a word limit. Other than the farce that is teaching at this university student attitude towards study is a joke. For example you find students speaking in London Chav slang strutting in and out of the law building. Then you have these amazing library facilities utterly ruined by loud and aggressive behaviour from individuals treating it as a common room of sorts. If you don't want to study why go to the library? Overall its up to you, but you are worth a lot more than this place. To close this review imagine an 18-21yr old throwing a chair at their mate inside the library, this behaviour is not uncommon.
Nothing to do in hatfield , forum is terrible and fire alarm kept going off and ending the nights half way through , only shops are a drive or bus away , gym is good but expensive , lots of tw*ts who play american football and think theyre in the nfl
Being in my final year, I've really enjoyed my time at University and I'll miss the student life. I won't miss Hatfield as it's very quiet and there isn't much to do off campus. However this makes student accommodation off campus very affordable for most students.
Absimal Wifi, the worst place for it is in the LRC which is the most important place to have it surely. The food is expensive, the rooms are extortionate and almost £50 more a week than almost all housing off campus.
accomodation is quite expensive and hot water keeps going off.. fantastic. WiFi is pretty shocking for a uni campus and there isnt much on campus to do .. and 6 washing machines between like 4000 students isnt exactly ideal. I've live in maclean court for nearly 2 months now and our launderette still isnt open, neither is the common room...
I don't think it's fair that the wifi is turned off during holidays - this happened over Christmas break & one of my flat mates, who's an international student couldn't contact his family over Christmas. Also, the LRC being closed on bank holidays isn't fair, we pay every week to stay so we should be able to access all facilities.
The college lane campus is the social hub and, even if you study on Dehav, is definitely the place to be in freshers if you want to have the optimal study and party experience. Dehav has a more relaxed, mature atmosphere on the other hand. Both campuses have excellent sports facilities and a conveniently located.
