An enjoyable experience all in all, there’s only two buildings off-campus really which is emdeck or cookworthy, but they’re quite close anyways. If you hate hills, invest in an electric bike. Wide range of universities where I have seen many people in them passionate about making them fun for everyone. I’ve personally never had a problem with the wifi after I was able to connect. The careers service is mainly whatever you make of it really, though they are easy to find and there’s always someone there in office hours. I studied biomed last year and would say the best resource we had was the lab plus where you can practice practical methods.

Absolutely hate halls. Can't believe the university accommodation would integrate nursing and midwifery students with other courses. Knowing we work shifts and having different students on different courses not respecting this.
Plymouth is full of opportunities for you to have the best experience if you take them
Having a very good time a Plymouth, all the facilities have been good and nothing to complain about
University has a great variety of halls and campus support and also has a wide variety of societies for all needs and interests. Yet the Wifi is shocking due to the speed and amount of times disconnected.
A great university and a great campus. Everything is found within a bubble of university life which is great.
Great university, would recommend to everyone
Everything is compact and close together so no late runs between everywhere. SU is right in the centre of campus so it's ideal for a meeting point for any occasion. Wifi is everywhere and normally fast as hell, not experienced any down service myself but friends struggle with it, I must be lucky or vice versa.
Lovely modern campus, staff are friendly and helpful. Always something going on in the Students Union!
Not perfect, nothing thats specificly amazing but all of them do there job and work hard.
Great uni, great SU when I have the time to spend there. Great facilities!
The university campus is really nice! A good central location in Plymouth, however, the sports facilities available on site are scarce
Excellent university with good facilities
Facilities around campus are brilliant, although they can get very busy. Clubs and societies are fun and sometimes very useful accompaniments to your course, would definitely recommend signing up to at least one society, student union has a good atmosphere and regularly hosts events, drinks are relatively cheap compared to the town, careers service is helpful and will try and support you to find jobs that fit around your studies, and will also help you in preparing for a career after university, the Internet is brilliant with about 12MB/s through ethernet in the rooms and about 1-2MB/s over the WiFi that can be accessed anywhere on campus and in halls
Great citybased campus, everything in easy walking distance. good on site facilities including students union, library and reasonable café outlets.
friendly large campus, plenty of opportunities.
With the campus being located literally 2 minutes away from the city centre, you are never too far from a bit of shopping or bite to eat.
Really really really love Plymouth. Don't join the rugby society they are scum. Other than that, super friendly, social and fun university, very helpful and supportive on many levels, beautiful city, and everything that you need is in walking distance :)
The only problem I have had is that the Internet can be temperamental but they are apparently solving this Asap
Campus has got everything needed and society's are good
Plymouth is such a fantastic place to be studying, the university has such fantastic staff and students, very modern facilities, the social life is pretty awesome as well!!
Love Plymouth! Everyone is super friendly and the students union loves to run events that gets everyone involved.
I love Plymouth University, the establishment provides me with everything I could possibly want and more.
SU is great, always loads of stuff going on. clubs are really intearactive with alot going on other than the sport too. lectures are always there to teach you, not just assess your work. the Labs and study centers are top notch with great books and facilities.
I love Plymouth University, great location, great courses, I am loving my experience at uni
The University of Plymouth is without a shadow of a doubt the best educational institution I have ever experienced. Not only is its numerous facilities extensive and greatly helpful in helping my learning and education experience, but the opportunities it provides is also fantastic; the fact that I am typing this currently from Plymouth, NH in the United States of America currently on international exchange just epitomises the fantastic opportunities have at this institution, and the mutual respect and desire between students and professors to learn and fulfil a young persons potential is really what makes the University of Plymouth an ideal place of learning for those who wish to truly push themselves to their fullest capabilities.
Everyone I have met so far, from staff to students have all been lovely! Such a nice location too, near the main shopping centre, lots of bars, restaurants and clubs, meaning there is always something to do on and off campus
A university dramatically changed into something truly world-class
Loving it, great bunch of people, nice city, the university has helped me whenever I've needed it.
A modern uni with plenty of facilities which aid in your development an study. Located in the city centre on its own campus is a major plus allowing quick and easy access to major shops and the amazing waterfront of the city.
I challenge anyone to find me something that there ISN'T to love about Plymouth University!
Love Plymouth, great atmosphere, and great lecturers
Great so far, really good facilities and people seem really friendly.
Nothing today apart from to many students, not enough jobs
Good compact campus next to town. SU is good during day and at night, and cheap. Good friendly nightlife, and friendly people. Good facilities. Uni gym is busy though. Get wifi all over campus.
Friendly people, great lecturers, lovely city
Fantastic clubs, anything you could want is available. And if it's not, then just set one up yourself!
Halls Rant: Halls overpriced. Alexandra Works in particular is pretty s*** - the reception states on the door what times it's open but no one is ever there when you need them during those times. I never got my full deposit back for "damage" which I know was already there and wasn't my fault. And I was in a flat with three Chinese third year exchange students who didn't speak much English. Finally, the lift broke and even though there is CCTV in the lift they didn't know who did it and the whole building was charged - this also happened around the time everyone was moving out and it took weeks to fix. Moving out from the fifth floor wasn't fun.
Love my time at Plymouth - could t have gone anywhere better!
pretty underrated despite good staff and courses
Very nice place to live with everything walking distance. Good university facilities also
Class time at Plymouth, cheap nightlife and good fun. Definitely made by joining societies and fully committing to them
It has been a great first year!
I love it at Plymouth! The facilities for my course are the best in the country the tutors are great, they support you when you need it.
Great university, central city location. Good facilities & courses offered.
Absolutely fantastic! Excelling in education both in and around campus being either clubs, societies, student opportunities, staff and facilities. Highly recommend.
Best three years of my life. Stunning city, wonderful atmosphere. Stones throw from the moors on one side and cornwall on the other side. Enough of a city atmosphere so it's bustling but not impersonal. Great place, can't wait to move back as an adult asap!
My course, professors, campus and the people I have met at Plymouth uni are amazing and I have loved my experience so far
very friendly and exciting place to work, always events going on. Rarely still.
Positive place to learn, Great atmosphere on campus. You wont be disappointed.
Really happy with my time at Plymouth University. Top notch.
Plymouth is a proper party central ngl. The accommodation is a bit overpriced, but I love it so much as it is a growing university. Plymouth, in recent years, has had a lot of money invested into it. It is also super green which is always a plus. Go here if you want proper ledge bants.
Plymouth has been absolutely amazing and it will always be a part of me
It has been great experience so far. Plymouth university has provided me with an excellent education so far and I look forward to the completion of my bachelors.
Great campus and facilities in a really nice location. Staff are helpful and really engaging. Societies and the SU are pretty good most of the time. Career planning is somewhat limited if you're not studying a buisness related degree.
the only society is something like Pokemon.. But apart from that it's great!
An enthusiastic architecture school that encourages their students to push themselves.
Brilliant university, somewhat lacking in tech support.
Good size university, wifi is all around on campus and very good. The SU is a good place to relax and get food for a reasonable price.
really like the uni everyone is really friendly and helpful and I always few safe around campus even on a night out which is important. The only fault I can think of is the poor computer use in the library. All the computers are awfully slow with some taking an hour to log on when the library is busy
Lectures are good and practicals, student union is really good
Issues with spending and how individual course run
Love Plymouth! So many opportunities, sports, societies! And great facilities too!
lectures are great. The student union has improved since it was re done and everyone's always friendly.
So glad I chose Plymouth uni! An amazing feel, and the campus is in the middle of the cit. Great place to live and go to Uni
If you want to do a geography or environment related course, this is THE place to be I think. The facilities are excellent and the department has an excellent, well-deserved reputation and I'm proud to be an environmental science student there. But the uni itself? If you are okay with the management spending £100,000 on a few graduation chairs and a further £300,000 on essentially a giant photo frame and are okay with rip-off halls then you will be right at home. Also, if this is the most sustainable uni in the UK, what on earth are the least sustainable ones like!?
Wifi is shocking. Love everything else. Great at wasting money
brilliant university, beautiful location in England also
Lovely campus, really friendly, but there could be more societies to choose from (although there is opportunity to set up your own), as there are several things I wanted to do but haven't been able to do. The wifi is generally good across campus, but I live in the student village and am unable to get wifi in my room without plugging into the ethernet (so I can't get on my phone's internet without going into the kitchen!).
The University Football Club is awful. They take your money and then don't really care if you're not good enough for one of the main teams. The staff are quite good, not great though. The SU isn't great, not particularly well loved from what I can tell. The WiFi on campus is OK sometimes, accommodation WiFi is annoying due to going down after every 10 minutes at times, and it is often labelled as 'limited'.
University staff are massively helpful when you need them to be
Comfortable place to study
compact uni, friendly environment
not much facility
Could This Be Perfect?
Friendly, Loads of free things Student City
Not in the Russel Group
Review of Plymouth university
Good placement of campus Good working facilities Amazing library and online resources Well educated and helpful lecturers My course is perfect for me Fair work load and deadlines Good nightlife for me Good town centre Range of supermarket shops
Halls accommodation not value for money Could be more support for students More information on financial and emotional support More events could be held at the SU (got a bit quiet after freshers week) More information on public transport around the city Doctors is terrible
