The small campus has a really nice community aspect to it, perfect for students who feel overwhelmed with crowds/large places. There's a range of sport clubs and societies however I would prefer if there was a wider range such as a walking society. The art courses are also really nice however I wish the global opportunities weren't as limited for illustration students.

I went to york st johns back in about 1982 . at that time there were a lot of students training to be p.e instructors and such like so there was a very sporty atmosphere around the place. now my daughter is thinking of applying for English and maybe film studies. i wonder if it is still like it used to be. i dont think she'd like the emphasis on sports amongst the students. but all other aspects

campus is pretty with a homely vibe and has a large library open 24/7. however the uni is just too small and york itself has a pretty poor student scene making it hard to make friends and have a good time. there is a major lack of societies to join aside from team sports, adding to how little there is to do when part of this university. the courses themselves all seem very small and not the best in the country/area by far and if you’re thinking of doing a creative/arts subject i wouldn’t recommend at all. the arts department seemed very underfunded and just behind the times in general, i ended up dropping out pretty early on, and i wasn’t the only one.

York St. John is a brilliant university. In the heart of York it’s a short walk into the centre and to the train station. The student union has good wifi and sells plenty of hot, cold and alcoholic drinks across the lounge and bar to enjoy both day and night. I spent most lunches here with a coffee in the comfy seats in the lounge. The pub quiz every Tuesday night is great fun (if you avoid the group that cheat each week) and the drinks are cheap and delicious. Most staff are lovely, only a few who are rude on busy nights. The library is big and items easy to find, with different floors for those who want to study in silence. Plenty of food and drink options available across campus, but not much choice available in the canteen after 1.30pm. Support available is good, but often lecturers aren’t available when you need them to be so it’s important to have coursemates to get in contact with. This is more of a general uni issue than with YSJ itself. Overall, there’s nowhere I’d rather go.

I'm now in my third year of PhD and I feel lucky and grateful to do a PhD here after the team of my supervisors. They are so patient with me that allow me to make y mistakes and find my way. That allows me to really love and start enjoying learning itself. That I think matters far more than the degree. And all the teachers here are so supportive. I love the atmosphere of study here!

I applied through clearing and ended up dropping out and transferring to another uni after 2 weeks. I was the loneliest I have ever been at this university and I felt so out of place. The university does hardly anything for its students and from what I experienced, teaching is below average. If you are from a big city I wouldn’t recommend moving to a town like York either as there is a big culture shock. Now I go to Essex uni and I am so much happier!

Moved in in September, although feeling apprehensive at first the staff made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The kitchen facilities are clean and up to date. There is bike storage and a gym which come in very handy. I enjoy living here and have booked for next year.

Appalling university, I had little to no communication all through COVID and even before hand which led me to drop out and upon dropping out I contacted them several times for updates which were ignored everytime and even though I said In my reasons why that the communication was bad nothing changed and upon my departure they were just as bad

They're trying to improve the facilities for art and design courses. Would recommend for any creative courses. Su bar is super cheap, cafeteria is a little pricey but I've never had something I don't like from there, they do breakfast lunch and tea. Starbucks and Costa are reduced prices. Library is good after you learn the system

I can't really think of any facilities the campus is missing. The Students Union are very involved with YSJ students and they are constantly holding events and helping others. The wifi only works in Holgate and Fountains - it really sucks in the other buildings, which is annoying when most of my lectures are in Temple Wing and some require the use of internet.

The students union is okay but very small and consists of a bar and cafe. Compared to other uni’s SUs it’s very basic but it’s okay during freshers. The WiFi is okay but not amazing. There are some food places on campus.

Absolutely abysmal. Dropped out before finishing my third year. Wish I could've finished but the place destroyed me as a person. The societies are mostly cliquey and unwelcoming. Same goes for the courses. Not improved when such cliques tend to garner more lecturer interactions. Which can be intimidating and offputting for those students who are less outgoing. The accomodation team was appauling in my first year. To a degree where I had to put in a full scale complaint at the end of the year. They're in no hurry to deal with issues such as unaccomodating flatmates, or those who leave the place an uninhabitable hazard site. They're happy to leave you to pay the fines and send their copy/paste warnings. The Wellbeing Team is friendly enough, however it is understanable, under the circumstances of having every other student palmed off on them, that care can be lacking and isn't as personalized.

The students union is nice and welcoming, sport societies are very cliquey with the committees but if you have your own little group and enjoy what you're doing you should have a fun time.
