Really pretty campus, easy to access everywhere on site as it’s within walking distance. The collegiate system is really good as it makes you feel part of a family

The campus has a great buzz around it during the day. Most of the facilities on campus are great as they’re just a walk away.

the campus might be a little brutalist and robotic but it’s a great place to go to uni and the opportunities to meet a wide range of people have been amazing

Fantastic university! Amazing East campus and dependable bus routes into town. The night life is also brilliantly organised focused on student satisfaction.

A great overall university that is integrated with a city with an astounding history. There’s no better place to go if you want to be in an environment that embodies learning.

My student experience in York, so far, was a great experience and I am enjoying my time here. The facilities provided by the University are great and you can get involved in all kind of activities and societies. I lived in campus on my first year and the accomodation is great; the rooms are quite spacious and the they provide loads of things that you may need. The main issue is with the location of one of the campuses because is far away from the main campus and you may spend a bit of time to get to the lectures. The library is a great place to go and study, even between lectures. You may not want to go to the library during exam periods because is really busy and there is no space left for most of the times. The great thing is that you have two gyms that are on campus and you can crack on with your workout. Another thing is that joining a new society, you can get to know other students with the same interests.

Great teaching staff, researcher are working in relevant and important fields, and the research produced by York is of high quality and impact. Situated in beautiful York, a great place to live, and study. Campus is huge with sites spanning a large distance, collaborative work is encouraged.

Great academic institution capable of serving as a foreground for your career. As an university, the experience is what you make it and this is especially true with the university of York. A day on campus can range from beautifully full of exciting conversations and interesting interactions to a barren and asocial one. If you want to go out of your way to make the experience a worthwhile one it is definitely possible at this institution

I love my university. Fact. The loving community is the most prominent factor for my love of York - colleges, societies and friendship groups have made my university experience exactly what it is.

Overall good university. Good shop and food places on campus, but could do with the bus routes to the uni covering both sides of campus instead of just one side

Student union provided lots of different events. The campus is Big, which is part of its charm and makes it beautiful, part of the campus is surrounded by a lake. some of the new buildings have amazing facilities.

Overall the campus is nice, there are some awful buildings but the newer ones are great. Especially heslington east where I lived as a first year as the accommodation is much newer. The course is really good, interesting and the lecturers are great. The facilities are good, especially on hes west with bars and places to eat, the library is also huge. Overall love the uni.

I should say my East Campus one of the best campuses ever. We have a beautiful lake with swan and duck, at night there is rabbit run every corner of the campus. Feel so calm, and all the nature place feel so great with Quite Place one of amazing and must take a picture. I'm an international student the support was great all the staff helpful. The cafe even provides halal food. The Sports Villages were full of the equipment with a lot of classes included in the packages. As a PhD student, they provide me with a comfortable office comprises a kitchen and small pantry for coffee. What else you will ask for the library great the IT services always helpful. For students want nightlife, they have a bar and some local bar also around campus.

York is great. The collegiate system has something for everyone! From raising money for charity, a second family in college, bar crawls, cheap booze - I really couldnt imagine myself anywhere else.

Location is less than ideal however the bus services are good. The university itself is lovely in the bits that are new. Staff are friendly but more free parking should be available

The uni is very fun with lots of societies. The campus is nice and conviennent with plenty of cafes and restaurants for a quick bite or shop. There's a Santander bank located in the centre with plenty of books available on demand in the library.

University of York is great and it's department of English particularly outstanding and supportive. However the vice chancellor has been devoid of moral judgement during the strikes which is frustrating.

We have a workig class officer now but that took a lot of fighting from people. The vast majority of York is posh and white it seems and has conservative politics on class. In terms of Lgbt I know there is a strong community who provided safe spaces but have hesrd from friends thst the scene is not so good in York and that the student union network don't provide proper support.

Mental health services could definitely be better. The waiting lists are too long and often people who need help are backbenched
