Campus is STUNNING. And lots of green space and little hide aways. Students Union a little useless. Societies are fab! Careers are very helpful. WiFi is good. Until exam season when half the uni realises they actually have to study

University of York is a collegiate university where there are 9 colleges around campus and your class is literally a minute away from your room. The social life here is good, I feel welcomed, everyone is friendly, the accommodation is the bomb, there is 24 hours reception at Ron Cooke Hub & also Hes West. Overall, it is the best uni & you can make friends with the cute ducks and geese!!!!

Sports clubs and teams are decent but could do with a bit more funding for pitches for rugby and football. Campus is claustrophobic, the buildings are usually reminiscent of horrendous communist prison-like architecture and the ones that aren't are situated on Hes East - the barren wasteland of Uni of York. Town is nice, but other than club nights, it's mostly left untouched by students as its about 15 mins away by bus.

The internet and wifi is practically non-existent, always crashing. The staff are racist and talk to people like they are dirt - disgusting in truth. The Halls of Residence are little better then slums broken windows, mattress holed the kitchen facilities filthy. Clubs are drastically underfunded well the University is in debt so what do you expect. The university look like something from a secondary comprehensive modern built on a sink estate. Don't go here

Clubs & societies are SECOND TO NONE, in terms of community & college spirit - just the right level of "house atmosphere" (imagine the Harry potter houses, you socialise with Gryfindor and there's just enough of the other houses around in lectures to meet them too).

York is wonderful University that has gone under the radar for too long! The collegiate system and the more moderate size of the University means that there is an excellent community atmosphere. It also means that there is the opportunities to manage small scale business and events at a very early stage a progress into larger things - gaining invaluable experience that you simply cannot do in other universities. Go to York.

It was okay, the social life is a total disaster on Heslington East and the student union is a huge waste of time. The on campus bars are awful too. The university expresses blatant sexism additionally by banning international men's day this year but celebrating a week for international womans day. Disappointment of a university really.

I love the University of York, in such a short space of time you realise how friendly everyone is and prepared to help you out. There is a society for everyone and there are so many opportunities to try new things and boost your career prospects if you choose to engage in them. The library is huge and there is plenty of space to work quietly or find places to work with friends and always a computer available.

We've got a pretty cool library in my opinion anyway and although we don't have a nightclub on campus no-one really seems to mind since it isn't far in to town. The student union events however are awful in comparison, I went to one once there was probably 20 people there tops. If you want a thriving SU bar and nightclub York is not the place for you. There's a lot of different societies and sports teams so there'll be something for you whoever you are and every year they host at least 3 careers fairs.

All round fantastic. The West campus is great (albeit in need of an update). Huge suggestion though - please can someone address the issue of the library - during exam time/revision period there is literally no hope of ever getting a seat in the library - people have resorted to getting up at about 5.30/6am just to get into the library before 7am, which is when it is almost full. This is a huge problem because I struggle to work in my room as I like to separate work from home, and I know there are 'alternative' places but those places lack plug sockets, silence and things like water pumps etc. Other than the library issue, it is fantastic.

As a law student the Law School is on the cutting edge of creativity and modern legal research. As a student the University is academically highly regarded, and more importantly never loses sight of its young, plucky upbringing; yes you can be the best academically, but it means nought if you have no fun along the way.

The Careers office is always sending out new opportunities for students so if you can't find anything - it's because you don't want to! There are so many clubs and societies to join, and they have great meeting hours so there will always be something you can join. Overall, the two campuses are lovely once the concrete grows on you and the nature on Heslington East is beautiful. There are great buses between the two campuses and York is such an affordable place to live - there are halls for every price and the student lets in the city are well priced too. You can't go wrong with York!

Amazing university that is simply a head above most others, if you meet the standards to apply then it's well worth it. I've made life long friends and gotten a world-class education without having to spend a fortune living in London or abroad. Plenty of clubs and societies and the 'Roses' tournament against Lancaster put York uni on the map for sports!

Facilities, Societies & clubs are amazing. The wifi (Eduroam) is less reliable than a pensioner's erection.

York is a fantastic uni!!! You get used to all the geese and ducks along with the stuff (faeces) they leave behind on the pavements.... However there are still some issues with york... The internet connection is terrible and if the network goes down early weekend it's likely it won't get fixed till the Monday, societies are great but some are a bit lacking for example the electronics society (shocksoc) they don't do any nights out :(

Fab university and brilliant city!!! Campus-y and compact without feeling too confining. Unpretentious, friendly atmosphere, and a nice, informal collegiate system (fun for sports events, club nights etc and provides a bit of a community). Fantastic English department and excellent theatre facilities. Good SU, always lots happening. Home to one of the most active drama societies in the country (so good!!!) amongst countless others. Brilliant city, steeped in history, with loAds of independent businesses and weird and wonderful shops, as well as a varied quirky nightlife. I've had the best time here and I'm so reluctant to leave. I urge you to consider it, especially if you're planning to study English/theatre/film. York is a beautiful place, life is cheap (perks of living up North), the people are friendly (again, the North!!) and the university is wicked. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Going into my second year I've had an excellent experience in first year with so many opportunities in sport and other societies, a range of people who are there to speak to if you're struggling with anything i.e money, family, housing.

Only thing bad about York is the wifi at Halifax college and often there are some periods where the internet drops. Library is the best part as its open 24/7, I hadn't realised how important a god library was until I got to uni and I was lucky enough to have an AMAZING library!

I study psychology and the department is great, there are good facilities and the staff are enthusiastic. The campus and social life are great too, the student union have 4 club nights a week at different clubs in town where you always bump into people you know. Sports clubs and events are really good, there are intercollegiate tournaments and the annual roses vs Lancaster uni which has an amazing atmosphere!

Spread over 2 contrasting campuses, I've felt very comfortable at York to live and study at. It's close enough to town if you need anything but far enough away to be a lovely student community. The campus bars are all so different and I love all of them for their different atmospheres. From week 1, I immersed myself in societies because York has so much to offer! The weekly events are so varied and fun to get involved with and it's nearly impossible to be antisocial. The student union is very helpful and my degree programme pushes careers events and CV workshops throughout first year. The internet is sometimes intermittent but I've only noticed this because I'm always online. Best uni I've visited and don't ever want to move away from York again!

University of York is ah its difficult to explain in word but basically it is AWESOME!! I have been involved in 4 societies this year and I feel like the society list is really good! One problem will be if we can use the sports center and sports villages dance studio for free it will be much better. I think there will be place for everyone in this university and you will love it :) !!

Fantastic uni, excellent resources and study facilities. I'm studying chemistry and the course offers a ton of support!! Brilliant and beautiful town, only downside is the kinda dull nightlife, but there's plenty of clubs to find something for you!

The student Union doesn't always get things done particularly fast, if at all. The internet/WiFi is great, when it isn't kicking you off for both reason

The campus may seem a little concretey at first but the lake gives it a much more natural feel with all the ducks and geese and Heslington East is much more contemporary. The collegiate system makes the uni so much friendlier than most with endless events from movie nights to club nights run both within each college and for the university as a whole. The staff are very understanding and are always willing to help if you have any problems in any department. Finally the city is beautiful, it is a pleasure to live in such a gorgeous area.

Beautiful campus with a good standard of facilities! A wide range of sporting clubs and societies available and will probably find some strange ones too! A very active students union, sometimes lack in communication especially if your not a big social media user! York has a good reputation with employers and students are generally very successful. The internet, when you get it is quick.... But so intermittent in some parts of campus it isn't worth having! Wide variety of bars serving food on campus to a farely good standard with Costa coffee located on many different parts of campus.
