"Thumbs up! "By: D_W_S
I was lucky enough that me and my friend were both accepted to the uni, so I wasn't going alone, which was something I was dreading!! Also, we were able to apply to uni halls both together, so if you are joining with a friend or partner, then definitely do this, and they will put you in the same group of rooms ! We stayed at Walsall Campus which was a short shuttle bus journey away, which was free. As I lived a the Walsall campus I was able to a free off-peak membership at the gym, which was ideal! You can pay for an upgrade so you can use at all times, but I saved my pennies and just went off-peak!
The Library is massive and there are also loads of computers! Although i brought my own laptop and used the free wifi in my room, when doing work, I found it alot easier to work in the library without distractions and thousands of books for references!!
Indibar and walkabout are the best places to go in town! although people do travel over to Birmingham for a night out, so keep that in mind that there are many places to go!
"Top marks! "By: Urchins
I was a very worried student when joining uni, it was a new chapter of my life. I was joining a Uni where I didnt know anyone. I was split between two unis, this one and another of which my friend was already a student, so fitting in would of been easier. But im glad I decided to come here. The students and staff for that matter are very friendly. I have met some people that I am very close to and will be a big part of my life.
I suppose living in Halls in my first year, made it easier to meet people, although if you live off campus or commute you will still not have a problem! I stayed in North Road accommodation, basic, but what you needed. For a cheaper option there is Randal lines, it is cheaper as you share a bathroom and kitchen, which personally I couldn't do, but if your budget is tight then maybe this is your best option. All rooms comes with free wifi by the way! There was no common area at the Uni, but best thing to do is to chill at a mates kitchen as they are bigger than the bedrooms! haha.
Wednesday is the student night, this is when drinks are at the cheapest (my favourite ), all the sports teams are also out in force, which I find annoying as they are normally way more drunk than other people. However, they are always busy nights and usually the best. Friday nights are also decent, usually about £1 a drink. In my opinion, just save yourself for Wednesday nights. There are 3 rooms at the SU, with slightly different atmospheres so pick what suites you best.
"more goods than bads "By: johnsummers89
University of wolverhampton is a good university but i can see how it may not be for everyone.
The lectures i found were very dull and boring, making for my studies to be long a tedious.
The library is massive but thats the only big plus.
I personally don't like the night life here, i saw to many fights for my liking and the locals don't seem to like the students much, so mixing in on a weekend is hard unless you have the accent.
The SU is poor too so i found the little places to go and socialise with friends.
"Halls are ideal "By: Owenstocks43
I graduated last year and miss this university so much. I secured my dream job in London but i still miss the whole university lifestyle with my fellow students.
The halls are right on the situated perfectly, there is a Asda right next door, which is very convenient for any student.
The library is a big plus as well as its massive! You won't struggle to find a place to sit or find a computer.
The night life is pretty good, there are plenty of places to go, its everything you expect to see for a university city/town.
The only bad thing about the night life is the SU, it need modernising and organising, but on the whole thats the only bad thing i can say.
"great atmosphere "By: jordan984
I'm now about to go into my 2nd year and if its going to be any where near like my first then i can not wait!
I commute into university so with accommodation i only know a little bit from friends I've met and they really like it, but there are new and old buildings so obviously the newer halls will be much more modern and I'm guessing nicer. My friends were situated in telford so its not to far from the university.
The best nights out in wolverhampton are on a thursday, friday and saturday, with lots of promotional stuff going on with the university.
The library here is massive ! you can't not get a computer or table, even in rush hour times of deadlines, its very well equipped.
"wide spread but enjoyable "By: eddy10
Wolverhampton very much surprised me, it wasn't my first choice and i was a little disappointed at the start that i was attending wolves uni. But this look on the university soon changed due to the modern facilities and the people i met.
My studies were fantastic, i was always in small classes so had more time to connect with my lectures.
The accommodations are nice but one halls is situated near the SU and one isn't so this obviously not good if your at the campus without the SU.
That is pretty much the only fault i have with the university, i have one more left and i will be very sad to leave the university and the place itself.
"Loved Wolvesy town! "By: LoveTheWolves
I enjoyed my university life completely. I will recommend it, staff are wonderful and friendly in every area and our lecturers are fabulous. Full support is given to students. I lived in private rented apartments.There are Lots of clubs to join but again I didn't have the time, if I could go again I would join at least 2 as you can make friends so easily and everyone has these little clicks, it's wicked. On Accommodation, I lived in Lomas street for a little bit and I loved it. I paid about £61 a week, cheap compared to most universities that charge £100+
The library, is such a good area, and around deadline everyone is in there when it comes up to deadline, the library is open most nights up until 3am so it's brill - wish it was 24 hours! Highly recommended, its a fantastic uni, friendly, helpful staff.
"It's like 50/50 with wovlerhampton "By: DaveMan
Theres ups and downs but it's all part of the experience I guess, the courses are so jam-packed and there is so much to think about but just always relax and just not stress. My advice would be for everyone to work from day 1! Week 1! Everyone starts work in week 8 and they find they have loads to do, it's so silly.
The accommodation is the halls I have ever seen! All my friends go to university and they are all okay but they are not particularly that great. The City is big and holds a great nightlife, but there isn't a mega list of things to do. However the place/area itself is pretty decent. Library is really accessible for long hours and there is plenty of computers available, there is no SU bar on campus, this is the biggest downfall our of the entire campus - just needs more places for people to group together, and I don't really drink, but I bet the party-goers would want that.
I'm thinking of doing a postgrad so don't really know what the employment prospects are like here.
