Jester's is possibly the greatest place on Earth . The Campus is kept clean and tidy. The lecture theaters are good but too hot and in building 54 the rows are too close together for normal people to fit in the seats. The course is good so far. The lecturers seem commited to thier jobs and know what they're talking about. We don't have any January exams which is perfect for us...not other students though. So the university as a whole is amazing

Really fantastic uni and city - everyone is helpful and friendly! As a third year biomedical scientist I have little free time these days, but the social life in the first couple of years was 10/10. Can’t beat stags for a pint after your last exam.

The university is great when it comes to social events and bringing people together. The campus is quite odd especially when you could have a psychology lecture in the chemistry building, it’s almost a fun experience. The facility is good at responding to request and sorting out problems especially during this period of strikes.

The doctors don’t always take you seriously on mental health issues or even just general health issues. The mental health support that the union provide is actually very good and informative.

The campus is very collected and all the important services like food and cafes are in the middle. The campus is logical and some buildings are very new.

Very clean campus with large open spaces, great study areas in the summer. Sports facilities are good but they are expensive. My course is interesting, i only have 10 hours a week though so its not really worth the £9000 a year. The union is good but it barely ever hosts student nights out

I think the university has an arrogance around it that it should not have. The accommodation is over priced. The gym is a very good facility but its always busy. Library facilities are outstanding. Good distance from town. Lots of societies available.

I love the uni, the campus is great with loads of facilities. The gym is good although just very busy. I love my course (medicine) it’s just hard and v content heavy. Student union is good, although it would be nice to organise more socials/nights in the union.

The campus is a good part of southampton university, with it being away from the city centre it allows it to be big enough all in good walking distance. The unilink bus pass is also a great thing about the uni especially in first year where it's included with halls. The accommodation is great personally, clean, big and modern. Lecture theatres are mostly good as well and the fact that all lecture slides and most lectures are recorded and put online is a really helpful thing both when making more notes after the lecture and during revision. Southampton is a great uni to be at.

This university needs to work on itself so it proves and sticks to it’s Russell Group status, needs to work on its social sciences and humanities subjects. Also please make it more clear to oncoming students that you have to do stats modules for politics and IR.

The campus and facilities are well looked after and perfectly adequate for student living. The student's union offers a significant number of activities in the form of societies whilst also enabling groups of students to form new societies should there not be a society that they wish to be a part of.

I've never experienced or observed any preferential treatment based on race, sexual orientation, etc. and I think the university and it's staff make a significant effort to ensure inclusivity without enforcing quotas.

I've been registered with the doctors on Highfield Campus for many years and have never had any issue getting an appointment or seeking treatments as appropriate.

This doesn't apply to me personally, but there are plenty of lifts and ramps to enable access for disabled students as well as practical support such as assistance in exams and note taking.

It is a very good city for drinking as there is endless pubs and clubs . Easy to get to campus with really good travel links and we have an airport nearby if you want to fly anywhere. Lots of weird and wacky sports and societies. As a physics student I find it is a bit lacking in support and some of the teaching feels sub par and I have very much struggled.

The uni is moving in a good direction with restructuring the organisation and focusing on the student a lot more. A bigger library is needed and the student union needs to be better focused on students.

The university of Southampton is a great university with everything any student would want. The campus has numerous bars, food outlets and even a market on Mondays. I study maths and we have a great common room area where students can have their lunch or a drink and mingle with PhD students or lecturers

Nice campus with ducks. Good chemistry department. Shit vice chancellor. RIP Susu, the cat that was our student union president. Good quality halls with trees and stuff. Fab free bus pass but it sucks that we don't get it for the whole of our uni career if we don't live in halls after first year. Piazza has fab pizza. Near an amazing gay club.
