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 campus is a good size, not too big and not to small making it easy to find your way around. All the facilities are up to a very high standard and are kept clean and tidy. There could be a wider range of societies however there are a lot of clubs that you can join in with. The student union has recently been re built and is a great building to just go and hang out with your friends, it hosts events all the time which is really good. The only issue is the Wifi can be very unreliable around campus
There's a brand new student union which is great. Wifi on campus is usually good but you can't get a good signal all the time. All the facilities are great and there's loads of sports and clubs to join. Most membership fees are good value too. The carees team are really helpful too.
I love YSJ! I am so happy I chose to attend here! The university is great and modern in some areas but also have the historic areas such as the quad. The lecture theatres ate great and spacious, my favourite personally is the one in the fountains building. The library in YSJ is perfect for when you trying to cram in all that last minute work, as it's open 24 hours a day. The library is made up of three floors, each floor filled with academic readings and computers for you to do your work. The student Union has just been rebuilt offering you a comfortable place to sit with your friends or even do some work. The Union had a student bar and also a Starbucks, which has discounted prices because yanno we're students. But if you're never in the mood for Starbucks, we also have a Costa in the fountains building. The Costa is super handy if you have a 9am on Monday morning, trust me it's helped me so much this semester.
Campus is all relativity new and some areas are currently being updated, designed well for student life. It is compact and easy to find your way around. The SU is a little small, but there are plans for summer 2016 to revamp this. Careers services are available during your degree and after you leave the uni. Wifi is accessible all over campus with student login, fairly reliable.
YSJ although it isn't a big university that's what makes it great, with being a small uni it means you get smaller more focused lectures discussions practicals etc and you're more likely to see your tutors than at some of the bigger unis. Its in the centre of York where there are 365 bars/pubs to have a pint or two in, there are also numerous attractions, shops, parks and hidden secrets to enjoy. The atmosphere is always friendly and its rare to feel homesick but if you do there is always someone there to talk to and if you do want to go home the train station is only a 15 minute walk if you dawdle and 10 if you don't from the uni!
Such a great place to study. It's right in the centre of York and the whole campus is quite compact which gives the uni a real community feel. Great facilities include the library and the excellent on campus doctor as well as the student advice team and health and well being team who are so helpful. There's student nights almost every night and countless societies to join.
It is a very pretty campus, almost in the centre of the beautiful city of York. I would recommend this university as it is genuinely a great place for academic development and it's just a shame that its small size results in it being low down in the league tables etc.
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience studying at YSJ. The campus and facilities are very modern and state of the art, due largely in part to an intensive building program that has been taking place at the University since 2002. The lower rating for the Student Union is due to the poor building that it is housed in- however the staff of the student union do a fantastic job and they are always on hand to help when you may need it. The internet coverage is campus- wide and free to access through a Uni account. The internet is relatively fast for a public network, and using it is straightforward. The career opportunities from YSJ are reasonably good, and the Uni enjoys a good reputation considering it was only granted University status in 2006. Overall I had a good experience at YSJ (although I found my second uni experience at Huddersfield University superior). I would probably recommend YSJ, although the drop out rate for my course was and is relatively high compared to average. CR
Good facilities, and wifi around campus. Most the societies are sports based which doesnt appeal to me personally but many of my friends enjoy them. Not really involved in the SU but have a nice shop for general bits and a cheap bar.
