Studying at University of Hull
The University of Hull is located in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire and has two campuses, one located in North Hull and the smaller of the two located in Scarborough. The university is the birthplace of the LCD display which uses liquid crystal technology created in 1972 by George Gray.

The university is also a high-achiever with over half of its students gaining a 1:1 or 2:1 degree.
The Brynmore Jones Library on the Hull campus has been recently redeveloped and now offers technology-enhanced learning over its nine floors to students and staff. £75 million has been spent in recent years, £20 million of which has been invested into student accommodation. As well as the library facilities there is much more on offer including coffee shops, restaurants and cafés, bars a nightclub and fitness centre, plus sports pitches a bookshop, art gallery and hairdresser. If you do need to leave the Hull campus it will take ten minutes to walk into the city centre.

one of the worse decisions I ever made was to go there. the staff are non professional, the whole approach on complaints and procedures are just non existent. they treat people as test dummies for new schemes which ruins your actual learning of the subject. you are off more than you are actually there to study. My advice is to find somewhere else, STAY WELL CLEAR OF THIS PLACE !!! #SOCIAL SCIENCES
Initially I thought coming here would be a big mistake but so far the university itself is good. It may not have the prestige of some of the Russell group uni's but is good if you want to focus on your studies and have a good time. That said, if there was anything to improve I would have an emphasis on the University finding more opportunities for students across all fields. And it seems like the staff don't care about improving the reputation of the University tbh.
Internet and library are good, though sometimes all the computers are taken up. Lots of societies, but the union is a bit uncoordinated and most were elected to their positions (including president) with no opposition.
Every club/society you can think of and if they haven't got one you want, you can start your own! There are loads of places to eat/drink on campus, it's so easy to grab a sandwich between lectures or plan to meet all your friends for pub food and a pint at the end of the day in Sanc. Any books/stationary/food to cook at home/clothing etc. Can all be found at the union shop or water stones upstairs which is really useful and saves you having to get the bus to the shops on the way home. Careers service are really useful, they provide loads of help not only with advice on career pathways but help and templates for writing CV's, how to market yourself etc. Wifi on campus always works, perfect if you want to use a device for lectures rather than a notepad and pen - I prefer to do this as I get the PowerPoints up and make notes below, saves loads of time trying to link what you've written to a slide when you're revising. Library - amazing! Such a good atmosphere for chilling and doing work!
Fantastic place to study! So welcoming and supportive throughout your time when you need it but allows full independence! Loved my time here! So many opportunities offered! Careers were all very friendly however careers advice after uni when graduates are struggling could be improved as I felt like they only cared about knowing where I was for the league tables rather than actually helping me out.
Hull; as a university it shows aspects of being very good. However; Hull as a city shows aspects of being like that place from one of the early Harry Potter movies when he's stood in the Weasley's fire place and accidentally says Diagonally as opposed Diagon Alley.
The University of Hull have great facilities for example the library. Wifi is fast. Students union has good food and is run by friendly people. The campus has it all in one so the walk from one side is not too far. Overall great uni.
Poor. Support for mature students is zero. There is a serious problem with subjects being retaught over and over again. There is little or no support for those representing the uni for minority sports, all the money gets spent on rugby n football. I risk life n limb in my sport and receive zero help or support. I would not recommend this uni to any mature students
Honestly such a pleasant surprise! I'm very proud of the university. Sadly people overlook it because of archaic premonitions of Hull as a city. However, the university really doesn't reflect any negativity thrown at Hull. It's a beautiful place to study, the academic lecturers are very passionate about the particular field they specialise in!
A last minute decision meant I ended up at Hull, with no idea what to expect. Turned out to be the best 3 years of my life, and I'm moving back next year! There's an atmosphere here of genuine friendliness, probably because there are no snobby pretences. Everyone is equal when you get to Hull, it doesn't matter where you've come from before.
University, you cant knock it. Reputation is solid, the cost of living though is soooo much cheaper than anywhere else in the UK. You can live well for a student. I graduated with a first in Engineering, a few years later on a 6 figure salary in the city (Lloyds of London). So the reputation is very strong. Plus if your in an interview with a ton of robotic Oxbridge students, and when asked "why did you pick your university" and your answer it "beer prices were cheaper" you get a chuckle, and come across as human. Hull is just that, you get the degree, its not easy, but you also have some banter and ability to communicate. That's what makes Hull folks unique. Best university experience ever. Wouldn't change the degree.
Lovely uni. I feel like I'm getting enough support, the workload is interesting and manageable and the campus is small and homely. Library's great! I've got so much more involved than I would have done if I'd gone to a bigger university.
Studying at the university of hull is amazing. My experience so far has been really good. There alot of places for students to hang out near the university and the support available is great. I've met alot of people in my course and outside and everyone is very friendly. I'm loving studying here and would recommend anyone to study here.
A brilliant campus and amazing new library! Good societies, brilliant lectures for BA Marketing. I graduated with a 1st in 2014 and can honestly say there is nowhere I would rather have gone to uni. Brilliant. Big shout out to business school lecturers Peter Andrews and Haseeb Shabbir, they really helped me get a grade I never thought I would.
As much as i loved my time at university, i dont think i ever saw my £9,000 going to good use. I dont know if it was just my course (Psychology) but the lectures were boring and pointless, to be honest i could have done the work at home just as easily. The lecturers themselves were alright, apart from a few, not mentioning any names but my 3rd year supervisor was rediculously unhelpful, I truely believe that if i have had a more supportive supervisor i wouldnt have got the grade i got in my dissertation (because to be honest, my dissertation, although was not incrediable, did not deserve the grade i got) Just one more thing also, in my first year i lived in student houses, on Cranbrooke Avenue, i wouldnt let a pig live there, they were disgusting. All in all and alright Uni i guess
I love this University. It is one of the very few Universities in UK that has an integrated campus. They recently completed a brand new state of art library yet maintaining their original structure. Wifi connection is super fast and you can walk around the whole campus with same password without breaking the connection. The cost of living in Hull is very reasonable. Wanna congratulate Hull City for securing the City of Culture status.
I graduated in Business and Marketing in 2014. Highest standards in all fields and a very international environment make this university/business school to one of the best ones in the UK and Europe. I would describe the preparation for my postgraduated and the labour market as excellent. I do not want to miss this academic and personal experience.
Hull is a hidden gem of a uni, there are many of social opportunities, good nightclubs, really fun sports teams. The campus is really nice, with only the odd ugly building but most of them are really nice like the business school. Everyone is friendly and as an american studies student the professors are really good and the course has such good module options.
Great university that has provided me with everything i needed so far. The new business school has great facilities and the library always seems to have space available, even during the peak exam periods! Havent really joined that many societies but from what i heard from friends, they seem to be pretty good.
So far I haven't been disappointed with any of the facilities at Hull and the amount it has to offer such as societies, volunteer work and courses has given me so much opportunity. The main thing I like about the uni though is how friends and welcoming everyone is. Im usually struggle to make friends being quite and a little antisocial but not at Hull. It's so easy to make friends because everyone's there to have a good time and make the most of the uni experience.
This uni is a hidden gem, people are so presumptuous due to past history of the city however the uni itself is so friendly. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year, all the staff are so so supportive and it made the transition to uni so much easier as everyone is so helpful and friendly, I love it here!!
If I'm honest, I originally did not want to attend Hull, as I entered through Clearing. However, having been here for a year, I am entirely grateful to my original choices for rejecting me. Coming to Hull was the best decision of my life.
Hull University is a very friendly and happy place to study. Joining last year was one of the best things I've done. The staff are very supportive and informative, and the university is always communicating with you about the student union, events and your course. They are always asking for feedback to improve upon the facilities and teaching. There are loads of sports clubs and societies to join. The campus is small so easy to find lectures, and very pretty.
