Campus is pretty small, food on campus is pretty expensive and not worth it. The gym is basic like it’s inconvenient as well. The printing is expensive. The learning resource centre is really good apart from the group work area, it’s always packed and loud which is annoying. The library is dull but has what you need but most of the time you’d just want to get out. Lived in mclaren house. It’s so noisy because of the first years.
