This is a lovely, friendly campus - as laid back and welcoming as Norwich itself is. Good facilities, happy students, safe environment. Loads of great activities on offer including a fab Drama Society and it's own amazing Gallery.

The UEA is great for a few reasons. Firstly, the LCR is a good music venue and club night venue I've frequented for many years, with ok beer prices and a friendly atmosphere. The campus has a few bars which are nice, a massive swimming pool/ gym and good parking.

Really worth going to the Sainsbury's arts centre. The actual building was designed by Norman Foster. The main permanent exhibition is free. Also, free guided tours twice daily showing highlights.

The student accommodation is acclaimed architecturally. The site is beside the river, there is a fooath round the lake which leads also to woodland walks. The site itself has concrete sixties type architecture ranging through to current buildings relating to 2010's. Book store, library, refreshments, Sainsbury Centre. Great place to visit with something for everyone. Our grandchildren enjoy a visit... More

I visited this with my wife on a chilly end of feb in 2015. We are in our 30's so our uni times are well in the past by now. I reminded us of our own uni times and the landscape plus the tranquillity made things even more melancholic. We even spent time walking down the lake close to the... More

Was it Amy Winehouse who said: "but I said, 'No, no, no". And "I won't go go go" and " said I just think you’re depressed"?

As a former student, alumni, worker, admirer & regular visitor.... The UEA is so typical of what Norwich is all about!! There is quirky architecture with the Grade Listed Ziggurats buildings, sprawling greenery and woodlands, a beautiful lake, lots of bustling life throughout the day, great little cafés, shops, restaurants and whilst it's all geared for student lifestyle, budget and...

We have recently dropped our child off for start of 1st semester and were a bit underwhelmed with the standard of the new Paston house block. We arrived to find her flat allocated was on the 2nd floor but the lift was out of order - this is not the weekend for it to be out of order with all... More

Two cafes - one smaller with limited selection which is fine for a restfull chat. The larger has a wide selection of tasty food to suit all palates but does get busy at times. Good place to meet interesting people .

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
