A gorgeous campus with a lot of programs to choose from. The campus has a lot of activities to do ranging from sports and exercise to parties.

Homely, pastoral, friendly, lots going on (on-Campus club and pub are wonderful!), the student centre is helpful and Wellbeing Centre is wonderful, the entire university takes great care of students. The campus itself is aesthetically lovely, and it's so close to London which is great!

Since starting my course in 2017 I can honestly say I have been let down. Not only do staff not seem to care but I have been given pretty much 0 support since starting. The pressure is surreal and not only this to even be able to do my course we need to be working. Shocking!

WiFi is the worst thing on campus, we pay a rediculous amount that out student loans barely cover and the WiFi doesn’t even work. I don’t want to live in the library or plugged into an Ethernet cable. The campus shop is also crap. Never any food on there. Nothing around campus either. The facilities (gym etc) and the active student is great. It’s a pretty campus and the accommodation is great. (Apart from the WiFi)

Found the teaching very lax. Workshop staff in the Art department didn't help you and a few times we had to involve the tutors to allow us to use the workshop. Computers often didn't work, WiFi was up and down, library was always rammed busy and catering staff were all rude in cafes and restaurants (apart from student union run restaurants) Almost regret attending Hertfordshire university

Internet is flaky and doesn't work a lot of the time. The club is pitiful and you'll have to travel far to find anything remotely half decent. The student union could definitly be doing better to create a more fun environment for students. And campus facilities could do with some serious upgrading, especially the computers

I absolutely love my time at uni of Herts however there are some down points - the student union isn’t the best and WiFi across campus is poor (including the accom). Hatfield itself is sufficient however the only club in the area is the one on campus. The societies are very refined to mainly sports, and there doesn’t seem to be much support available to start up your own society. My geography course and lecturers made my uni experience.

The worst uni. Moved along with many others after first year. If you tell someone this is my old uni they laugh and say how unlucky that is. Nothing good about it like honestly nothing. Maybe the buses between campus but then that’s not run by the uni. Don’t be deceived that it looks nice and big. It’s awful, no one knows how to teach and especially at uni degree level!! They teach GCSE standards

Awful. Moved uni along with many others after 1st year. Studied business management and economics and I didn’t learn a thing, after 2 weeks at another uni I learnt more than I did in a whole year here. didn’t tell me about exams and blamed there mistake on me. Tutors do not care. SU is non existent. In the middle of no where, all I can say is do not go here if you want a life and a good uni degree !! Campuses are full of rats aswell

Great university for my course and students who are dedicated to their degree. In a fairly secluded area and not a good night life. It’s possible to be involved in a lot of social and sport events however they are probably not up to the standards of other universities. Good for someone looking for somewhere quiet to focus on studying and a small social group.

Housing are not helpful. They say they do not tolerate thieves yet during my stay, there was someone who kept stealing and writing nasty things on doors. We contacted them and they said they'll send out an email to plan a meeting. Kept chasing them up and till this day nothing was done. You're better off staying off uni campus considering there is no help anyway.

Nothing much happens on campus, there’s only one good night in the week to go out which is a Wednesday and apart from that we mainly stay in the flat or just in our own rooms. The weekends are the worst, most people go home as they live nearby so it’s a complete ghost town and those that are still here are again stuck with nothing to do unless you have a job. The WiFi is poor and always disconnects every 10 minutes. The only good thing is the style of the accommodation as it is very new and the sports village which has a good gym and pool. As far as societies and sports clubs go there aren’t many to choose from and most societies are aimed at the international students, since that is the majority Of the population here. London is only half an hour away on the train but being a student you can’t really afford trips there all the time.

There is rarely anything going on on the campus, only one really good night at the Forum on a wednesday but the rest of the week everyone is bored and spend most of our time just in the flat. The weekends are the worst, most people go home as they live nearby and it’s like a ghost town. Nothing happening in Hatfield town either, just the galleria shopping centre. Only good thing is the sports village which has good facilities and the fact that London is only half an hour on the train but being a student means trips to and from London aren’t something you can do every week. I am leaving at the end of first year because I feel spending 2 more years here would be a waste of time and money.

The exam papers are an absolute disgrace with trick questions and errors. Resulting in failure. They ramble on in some papers and don't cover the range some not even what your taught. No practical sessions instead you use simulator software WIFI Is dreadful the only books are obsolete osx ones. Nothing related to assignments if an assignment is late its capped, deadlines aren't well spaced. This 4 computer science other than the above its nice/nice campus

Avoid, specifically the nursing degree. There are plenty of resources at the library to help with pass the course, nevertheless, the subjects are not adequate nor well organised. For instance, there are not enough simulation hours to practice nursing skills, instead, we spend time in the classroom discussing dignity/empowerment or learning theories. I understand that the course is 50% theory and 50% practice but it is frustrating to invest and sit in a classroom to discuss learning theories when it is not directly applicant to day to day nursing skills. What my peers normally ask and I also agree is that if a patient is having a cardiac arrest, how knowing about Jean Piaget's theory will help them to respond to that situation? The point is, they should give focus to what is important for nurses. Discuss the latest treatments and teach them detailed ecg interpretation , blood results reading and vice versa. AVOID period.

It is a great university with a highly motivated management. However, the local council and the city center needs fresh energy. The university should also fight for the Oxford - Cambridge expressway to be renamed as Universities corridor and go through Bedfordshire and Hatfield University to give an impetus to these two universities as well.

University of Hertfordshire Optometry A quick review of the University. The course is not organised the lecture are not to a professional standard and the lectures are very intimidating and constant have let us down with mistakes in exams to missing out lectures. Also the pre reg is not great they promised us that we are able to do pre reg at home and they have constant lie to us Save your self the stress and do not attend this university they put in rules mid way through the university and change a great deal of the modules. Do not apply here and i am someone who regrets my decision. We dont get any help and they do not care about your wellbeing

University of Hertfordshire has great services such as the SU. There are always events and things to do including colour runs, treasure hunts and nights out! The facilities are also good, including a Sports Village, LRC and SU Shop. I found the careers service helpful for interview prep etc. and from an academic side there is always support from CASE classes. At UH you won't get bored and are supported!

I love my uni, the LRC is great and the people there are really helpful. If I'm doing projects and need help they can always find what I need. I live on campus and it's great having everything here, there's even a pharmacy and a doctors. I'm a student ambassador too so help out at open days and that gets me a bit of extra cash. On my course I can do a year abroad and I can't wait for that next year, well, have to get through this one first. The best thing is the atmosphere, it's really inclusive, warm and helpful. I've found some new friends and I love that.

There are also loads of societies including Archery, Rugby, dancing etc so you can't get bored around here! The academic support is also very good such as CASE classes to help improve your writing and many other skills.

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.

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.

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.

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...
