Very central and excellent for anyone wanting to specialise in Asia/ Africa. The library has a huge range of books that are rarely available in other institutions.

The campus may not be the largest but it is easy to find your way around. The library has one of the most books a library could have which also looks good but difficult to find space after a certain time. Careers service is also very helpful when you need it.
