Loved my three years here, campus is really central you couldn't be more in the middle of everything. The halls are amazingly priced for London rental and the transport links are amazing buses to all over, every few minutes and there are Northern and Bakerloo line stations all over the area. The SU are great and there's always events going on in the SU bar, and there's a good number of coffee /food stops all over campus. The only negatives from my experience were (1) the organisation of course works, deadlines and feedback - but theses are a subject or lecturer based issues. And (2) the societies; there's a great number of sports available and there's the gs like LGBT, subject and political/religious groups but we didn't seem to have any 'fun/silly' societies like Real Ale, Harry Potter or Gaming; so the societies available might not appeal to everyone but you are in London so chances are there's something outside of the Uni for you.
