In my experience people did a bit of both. There will be freshers events during the day for you to attend - mostly set up by the different societies, then at night the unions put on their student nights, etc. However, some people do venture out and go to the nightclubs/bars in the city centre. Just do whatever you're interested in, but be sure to make the most of it - you only get one "true" fresher's week. The maintenance team are also super responsive, if anything is not 100% in my flat, I can get it fixed in the next morning. There are several common rooms which are amazing for any type of meetings.. The rooms are fine! I have visited other good residences and I find the rooms here among the best ones. Loads of space for storage, good furniture conditions, ... really cannot complain. The library continues to fulfil its role as the heart of the university, despite the move away from print and towards electronic resources. The work the library undertakes contributes directly to the institution's academic mission and to equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve academically and to maximise their employability. You acquire logical thinking and critical analysis skills. Decision-making skills are improved. ... All of these skills are greatly needed in the professional world, in any field. So, engineers tend to do better no matter which sector they choose, and they also tend to make good managers. City living can be compact at the best of times, so moving to the countryside can have huge lifestyle and health benefits Gardens tend to be larger than in cities or towns, where sometimes outdoor space is even non-existent, while having the countryside on the doorstep means plenty of fresh rural air for great health.
