I hate the University of Nottingham, I’ve been here for three years and all I want is to leave. I chose to study philosophy, but I want to be a games developer. I wasted three years of my life at the University of Nottingham. Don’t study here, no one cares about you
The campus is very pretty and makes you feel very safe. There are lights everywhere and it is the kind of place where you don't feel uneasy about walking to the campus shop in the dark on your own. The internet is campus wide and is pretty good, sometimes it disconnects from your phone though and causes you to use up some data before realising.
Worst university ever. Always spam you with lots of survey and feedback forms but those forms are merely just a useless piece of paper. Administrative staffs are not helpful and lazy, sometimes not friendly. They always ask you to send them emails but never really help resolve the issues. Admission process is troublesome. Been to three campuses, Malaysia campus is the worst. Location is unaccessible by public transports. Staffs are deceptive. Accommodation is even worse.
I am amazed at how organised the university is and how well it is planned out especially university park and jubilee. If your course is on sutton bonnington campus or Derby campus- you will be isolated or have to get up early to commute so i dont recomend that!
Nottingham is so lovely! The campus is absolutely gorgeous, so much green space and the lake is perfect to have a walk around after a stressful week. It's only a short tram/bus ride from the city so it's easy just to pop in for a few bits, but far enough away so it doesn't seem too overwhelming. There's so many great facilities on campus, have a look on the website, there's literally everything you could need and more!
Eduroam wifi is the same whichever uni you go to, not great. Have yet to need to use the careers service but from what I hear it's good. There's an abundance of societies and he campusnis beautiful and green, if a bit hilly and very large- running across it in 10 minutes isn't fun!
Sort of wish there was a club of sorts on campus, I've visited my friends uni's and they have one. That said, Mooch is great. Also, please can we have a Greggs or Birds or something. Costa, Starbucks and the rest of the more higher priced coffee and sandwich places can really chip away at a students bugdet. #wewantsausagerolls
New gym is amazing and the grounds don't compare to any other uni. Many of my friends I met through the massive selection of societies. The students union is great and doesn't focus solely on nights out as I know many unis do. Wifi isn't great as is always disconnecting, but ethernet connection has great speeds.
This university is an absolutely brilliant place to be. Being a campus university, the massive open spaces provides a constantly open space for you to explore, breathe and take a walk around. However, the city isn't far away, so their is always something to do. Prices for food within the university are expensive however this shouldn't put you off trying a Chinese at the top of the Portland building every once In a while
The campuses are beautiful. Resources seem to be abundant, but there is a lack of communication between professors and the student services, possibly because of their switching to a new data system. Overall, a nice university.
Brilliant university - excellent English School and gorgeous campus with great facilities. I made friends for life and my experience prepared me for a great career. All my friends have gone on to have interesting jobs from media to university management.
There are always events going on on the campuses. The SU organises fun and safe activities. Even within each school/ department, everyone is very involved and helpful. Plus the massive amount of resources available is just amazing for a student.
The uni park campus is traditional and beautiful, but some buildings look tired. The jubilee campus is modern and smaller so is more communal.There's a variety of clubs, but they can be expensive. The SU is very helpful and easy to speak to if you need any help. The internet is poor, sometimes it can take 10mins at the start of your lecture just to get online so you can load the powerpoint. Also, the hopper buses are un reliable and often too full.
Beautiful green campus, with something to discover around every corner. Buildings that are on campus are not very attractive, in particular the ones in the science park area. Student union building does not have a good location for night life/parties, hence these all occur in the city, which can be a hassle to get to if you live on campus.
Excellent student facilities and union. Mooch/The Den bars aren't particularly appealing, but the food is good and the atmosphere is always good. WiFi on campus is excellent, access in all buildings and some outside spaces. Broadgate Park WiFi (StudentCom) very poor. Graduate employment one of the best in the UK.
The best University, 100%. Such a good atmosphere, beautiful campus, great teaching staff and a wonderful city to spend three years in. Given the choice, I'd never pick another city to go to uni in or live in, and studying at UoN has been the best experience of my life.
Beautiful campus, lots of green space and excellent facilities, all in an amazing city. However, if you hate walking, it's not for you! Hopper buses help, but the campus is still a good 30 minutes walk from one end to the other.
The university has a North and South divide. The deadlines are too close together with placement as well. The university has not given us enough information about applying for nursing jobs and jobs outside of nottingham. I'm not happy that the course has not taught us enough human anatomy/biology.
