Winchester is the ultimate fairy tale city. I couldn't design a more beautiful location in which to study. The campus itself is small, so incredibly easy to navigate. Most courses are fairly small so you'll be known as a name, not a number and will see familiar faces everywhere you go. The library is an excellent place to study, and the two student cafe / bar areas are reasonably priced and never too busy. The student union itself is incredibly approachable and accommodating, and events are arranged frequently. Overall Its a lovely, friendly and community orientated university experience.

Winchester is stated to have low crime rates and I do feel safe in the university. The campus is comprised of new and old buildings, I really like the apperance of some buildings, including some of the lecture rooms. The only downside is that some of the buildings are a bit outdated and they need room for improvement. The food is particularly nice and I really like the University's salad bar and pizza restaurant. I enjoyed my forensic studies course during the first lecture, but there were a lack of practical sessions i.e investigating mock crime scenes. There is one part that I have to point out about the halls of residence, there are not many studio flats (including kitchens) that are on offer. It would be nicer if there were more studio flats for studenta who wish to move in them. The University have their own night club and the main events held are held at the University just mainly include nightclubs that promotes drinking alcohol. I wish for there to be more fun and exciting events that do not just mainly consist of cheap University nightclub outings. On the downside, there aren't many societies in the University of Winchester, compared to other Universities in the UK and I wish there were more of them. Some of the teaching experiences are good and some are not so good, it is like a mixed bag. Overall, the University of Winchester is a nice and compact educational institution.

The university has two campuses, both of which are quite small, which is great for getting to know lots of people and making friends. There are lots of facilities such as cafes and restaurants, but some of these are quite expensive. The student union hosts a range of entertainment, with the best being weekly BOP fancy dress nights which student attend as groups or societies. The student union team are very helpful, and so are the lecturers. There is always lots going on around the university and it’s a great place to be, although there are not many places to go for a night out in town. Overall, Winchester is a great university.

The campus is so lovely and they have lots of eco friendly things. They also do lots with sustainability, including recently placing down hedgehog houses and doing module audits to make sure each module contains sustainability and environmental knowledge. The careers in particular are very good! They are easy and approachable, answer very quickly and are generally very helpful. They hold lots of workshops to help with CVs and such. My course is so much better than I could have hoped for. Heather modules are well structured and contained a wide variety of modules to chose from. The lectures and staff in the faculty are so lovely. They are always willing to help and very approachable. There is also volunteering within the faculty which is great too!!

The campus is quite small but its pretty with a stunning view. I currently study events management and it is a brilliant course full with helpful lecturers and interesting modules. The student union is good for themed nights, however compared to other unis they dont have a lot of nights out and its quite quiet.

On campus they have a doctors, disability help and mental health support. They offer drop in sessions throughout the week and if you need help, you can always email them and they get back to you instantly.

Course is very interesting, only annoying bit is when lecturers don't really listen to feedback. Campus is lovely, library is small but has plenty of resources especially if you take advantage of the online ones. Su is Ok, don't have massive deal to do with the su purely because I don't really drink so don't like clubbing.

My experience at Winchester so far has been great, I’m studying Primary Education and I’m in my first year! The teaching staff are so friendly and approachable as well as being highly knowledgeable on their subject. The student services team are great, go out of their way to help you. The feel of the university in itself is good, it’s a friendly environment and I always feel safe. The only downfall I would say is the location, you have to go into Southampton for a decent night out. I’m don’t live on campus but many of my friends do and their accommodation seems great, fair size with good kitchens. Again a problem is parking on campus, you can only park if you have a permit and they do not have anywhere near enough spaces. I have to park on campus due to being a parent and needing to rush off to collect my son but if you don’t need to rush off there is a great park and ride service, students of Winchester even get a discount.

The university campus is small making it easily accessible for students however the size is also a downfall. There are several places to get food on campus, although the only franchise outlet onsite is quite expensive resulting in students seeking cheaper alternatives on campus where price reflects the quality of food. Two shops at the university (Main campus and West downs) both with limited capacity for stock. Only two cashpoints onsite of the whole university which are occasionally out of order meaning students have to walk into town to draw cash out for free. Good sized library with 3 floors. A vast selection of study spaces available to students located all around the university, from quiet study areas and rooms available for hiring to dicussion and more social study areas. The terrace bar is open week days however more on the pricey side considering it is a student bar. The student union is very spacious with four floors however, only two are open during SU events which limits capacity. Overall a good campus for a small university with the town centre a 15 minute walk away.

Lounge areas for minority groups to get together available for students. Commuters area for those travelling from afar and need somewhere to relax/study. Bursaries and scholarships awarded to those from lower social economic background which do not need to be paid back allowing which is a great help in supporting students struggling with living costs.
Health and wellbeing services: 
Good health and wellbeing services - an onsite surgery with nurses and healthcare professionals, lots of students registered here.
Support for international students: 
Good support for international students with help available at student services for students in need for travel advice, visas, accommodation etc.
Support and facilities for disabled students: 
Easy access points - wheelchair slopes located all around campus and student accommodation available for disabled individuals. However, West downs campus in particular is located on a hill and consistered less accessible. Gym could have more resources available for disabled students.

Very good History course. The campus was well designed with lots of places to go for coffee or lunch. The SU arranges lots of events but they were often quite samey. Halls were nice but a little dated. Overall the uni helped me get the career that I wanted and enabled me to make some good friends - don’t be put off by the hills!

Winchester university is a campus is both modern and old. It retains Winchester’s historic King Alfred/Religious roots within building names and the chapel on campus as well as through the sociable Winchester Christian Society. Moreover the new buildings on campus at Winchester are functional, visually appealing and in constant demand (and most importantly accessible to disabled students/staff) showing Winchester’s uniqueness and diversity which is unlike many other Universities.

The campus is centrally located in Winchester close to the town centre. The architecture is stunning and facilities are almost always great. The student union puts on a wide variety of events but would benefit from establishing an alternative wednesday night schedule between a traditional club night to the classic BOP party anthems. The advice and societies aspect of the SU is solid. Lecturers are often friendly and approachable and the smaller courses benefit immensely from this as its always easy to seek advice and guidance.

The campus is beautiful, it has a really chilled and relaxed feel to it. The uni's best facility is definitely the 24 hour library its so handy to be able to use the library whenever you feel motivated to work even if its the early hours of the morning and has loads of comfy seating areas.
