The waterside campus of University of Northampton is beautiful. Currently I am pursuing MSc Project management. There are numerous student groups and organisations at my university, but I have not participated much. There are numerous possibilities for student housing, but early reservation is required. The university's Change maker hub is organising a career expo and placement opportunities, and they are assisting students with their CVs and career paths. The students' union organises several events for students. Multiple communities exist at the university to engage international students in various activities. The Unitemps staff will assist us in finding part-time jobs within the institution. read more

‘Safeguarding’ staff are racist to the core. The comments on here give me relief in knowing I’m not alone and make me desperately panic for new students. Racist comment was made to my face and when I tried to report it I was told that I was being sensitive. Get the uneducated, ignorant staff out and get a diverse range of staff in!! read more

Lack of support for the creative arts. We've been stuck on the old campus for the last 2 years when everyone else is on the new one. Lack of food facilities also, had to rely on broken vending machines during late night lectures. Almost tool a year to move one module onto the new campus even though they said it would only take a few weeks and all they had to do was download a software onto a bunch of macs. Basically lied to before starting here. Went to an open day prior to applying, got to see the new campus being built. Was told there was going to be a music facility in creative hub, but upon arrival, found out that it didn't exist and later found out that they never even had plans for us to be on that campus. Felt like I haven't experienced the true student life as I see the same 20 people everyday. Course is great, the universities support on the course is terrible. read more

#BLACKLIVESMATTER but not according to the entire residential life department. Vile creatures with deep rooted racism in them. They do it by abusing their position by interrogating you. Made me empty my suitcase upon arriving after Christmas break because ‘they wanted to check for any suspicious substances’. Quickly changed their mind when my black mother (Dr Black Mother) asked them why I’m a target for stop and search. Replied by stuttering their way out of it. Pathetic. read more

Racist uni, glad to have graduated. Living in halls is awful, you tell them there is a problem and staff made racist comments and they coordinated a targeted gaslighting session and caused severe mental exhaustion read more

The university of Northampton will not care about your well-being. I got sexually assaulted by another student in their uni accommodation and went into severe depression. I did not report it at first as I didn't know who or where to report to in the uni and I found the whole situation hard to talk about, however, when they wrongfully terminated my studies due to the fact that my mental health was getting worse and I couldn't keep up with my work, I mentioned in my appeal about my situation and included a letter from my therapist and they still kicked me out. My abuser is still in university finishing his degree. Aside from that, the campus is not safe at night as anyone can get through, some of their clubs and societies discriminate against black people and they wouldn't answer me back to accept me in one of their clubs. The WiFi also keeps cutting especially in their student accommodation St Johns which prevents you from completing your work. read more

I was here some years ago for a short time and it was ludicrous beyond belief. Northampton university was one of the worst career moves I've ever made. I've since done with university now until I can afford my master's degree, but the theatrics of the people that I was here with astounded me. read more

The University is absolutely rubbish, they do not care about students one bit especially minorities. They purposely target the black students for every little thing that happens and they intimidate them a lot instead of comforting them, a black student was stabbed on campus by people who did not go there yet the university brought police onto the campus and ONLY went into the black students flats without them knowing to ask them questions, they also understandably patrol the campus at night but will only stop black people and interrogate them of where they are going but will never to any other races. the Residential Life do not do anything to help at all, only good worker there is Mark. My room has been broken into and things stolen, yet the university did not help me at all, they did not even return my calls or emails. DO NOT GO TO NORTHAMPTON UNIVERSITY!! read more

I studied my BA in Fine Arts from 2012-2016 had a gap year after second year. There was huge change within the department as I went into second year without it I don't think a lot of student would have went on to finish their degrees. The tutors are amazing, thoughtful and caring I had a few health problems which did effect my studies but when extra time was needed it was sorted quickly. Studio space created are awesome. Although they offer free sports and societies I found that they where not manage properly and became orientated around one person we where often left with no coach too. Having two SUs one in each campus left Avenue with no main events unlike Park which where poorly advertised around Avenue both campuses didn't work together except for free travel between them but the service is poor as now it changed route to more public service. Northampton is rough but there is an amazing alternative community. My experience was like a rollercoaster am glad I've finished! read more

Awful. Do not come here if you are Black or ethnic minority. Far better Universities in London that you can (and should) strive to get into and can help you grow as an individual. If you have been bullied and struggle with confidence, please look elsewhere. read more

Fantastic university. So supportive and caring. There's a brilliant community spirit and everyone is made to feel so welcome. The teaching is absolutely first rate and really well organised. Myself and all my friends who went here, went on to achieve so much. UoN is great for building attitude and life skills as well as academic skills. I assumed all universities were this good until I recently started at a red brick university. It was such a shock. The teachers there don't care or teach well and all the students are stressed and struggling. I didn't realise how lucky I was to be at Northampton until I experienced the alternative. read more
