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

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.
