They are currently updating all of the campus facilities - and the su looks sexy after last summers revamp!! New buildings and new furnishings - the only problem is that the library closes at 12 through the week, and 8 on a weekend. Although the opening times are extended around exam time, sometimes I do wish it was 24 hours for the random panic revision that will occur at 3/4am. Absolutely loads of clubs/societies. Hard to pick to be honest. There is a career/job board in the su. Updated regularly and loads of stuff in there. I also get weekly emails about job opportunities from the facilty in my school.

Great facilities with everything you'll ever need, but I assume most Universities in the UK are all like that by now.

Do not come here!!!! They have effectively Banned Cycles from campus through absurd policies. When you visit you won't see any but will see lots of cars! They dont maintain property. I got electrocuted and wound up in hospital. They encourage a bad lifestyle with plenty of Fags and Chocolate all over the place. The security have an attitude problem and don't treat you like intelligent academics but more like scummy prisoners out on probation. I transfered from Newcastle and it was the biggest mistake of my life!

The campus and facilities are all pretty much top notch and the student's union is excellent as well (one of the top in the country I believe). Campus wide wifi is excellent and easy to connect to with just your university username and password. Huge choice in courses to choose from whatever you wish to do, many of which are accredited by a chartered society in the respective field. Lots of clubs and societies to join whatever your interests from sports to gaming and more.

Thank you for the great review! We're really pleased you made the most of our campus and new facilities. We've invested £270m in our campus in recent years with a further phase of investment scheduled over the next decade - all to make sure you have a great experience. Excellent to hear you've enjoyed the Students' Union and the huge number of societies too - like you say, there really are so many to choose from. We can't decide which we like best - battle re-enactment or trampolining! :)

The social side of Teesside uni is brilliant, their resources have allowed me to find my best friend for life. However some courses are a bit lacking, but when it comes to the technology side of the uni, those courses have been great I've been told.

The campus has just recently been refurbished with parts built into the campus, and it looks great! The Student Union is an exciting place to hang out with events on most of the year, friendly helpful staff are always around to ensure you always get pointed in the correct direction! The wifi around uni is efficient and quick. There are a range of societies and clubs to join, something for everyone with a few new additions this year.

After being at Teesside for 1 year I am loving every moment, and even though it wasn't my first choice I am so glad and grateful that I selected it as my 2nd choice. The university is small in its self and everything is in the same place so you know where your going, also there are always quiet places to study individually and for group work. Talking about work the staff are brilliant and some show a real passion for what they are teaching you which encourages you to try harder.
