I first came here to study for my Master's and didn't particularly like the place with all its concrete. But as months went on... I warmed up to it and grew to appreciate this architectural wonder. It's simply a must-see for anyone visiting Norwich. Maybe you'll stay here to study too! :) Do go to the pub if you've got... More

Since my first visit to the campus I knew UEA was perfect for me. An amazing place to live and study.

This is a friendly campus and the open days are well organised. All the faculties are designed to be within 5 minutes walk from the central point - as my child looked at Drama, this is unusual as most drama departments are tucked away on the edge of campus or on another site altogether. the grounds are very pleasant and...

The UEA is a superb campus to wander around, from the wonderful Sainsbury Centre to the Broad. There is a wonderful atmosphere on the campus and I agree with others that it is easy to see why students love it so much

Often visit here to go to the bank etc - the library / shops / pubs / banks etc are open to the public. Often eat here as can have a great hot meal for about £4! Hidden secret in some ways.

The Sainsbury Collection at the UEA is well worth a visit. It is an eclectic mix of ancient artifacts and art mixed in with some very modern paintings and ceramics. The collection of ceramics by Lucie Rie and Hans Coper is fantastic and, if you are interested, well worth viewing. There are also many painting by Francis Bacon that are... More

Was there from 1972-75 and revisited. Much expanded since our days and I still like the architecture and whole atmosphere of the campus. The Broad is now mature and a beautiful feature. You can see why UEA rates first for student satisfaction.

I had the opportunity to work at and visit different campus in England and Ireland and UEA is by far the best. Easily reachable from the center and the train station, it's not too big but nice with excellent facilities and the amazing Sportspark (described as the "biggest indoor sports centre in Britain"). There are also several shops, a few... More

Quite frankly, this is a great place for long walks which is the reason I visited it. The huge campus is located on a river and it is a green oasis. The day I walked there, the grounds had dozens of rabbits hopping around. Very pretty!
