The campus has large amounts of green space, including various sports pitches and recreational spaces which means it very much feels like a campus uni. The uni offers not only the library, but various places to study which means during busy exam periods you can always find a place to work.

Academic staff are so supportive if you approach them with any of your problems and personal tutors are always on hand to help with any academic issues. The careers service are really helpful and offer schemes such as the employability award and LboroConnect to help you with that first step out of university life. The union will help solve any issues and student voice will help you resolve everything from academic misconduct to where is the best place to have a drink.
