Ok so this is a great place to study and I would highly recommend you consider it. Beyond study however it runs fantastic literary festivals, music and club nights, guest lectures and more. It is also home to the wonderful Sport Park facilities.

A great Campus buzzing with activity and fantastic facilities. All staff we encountered were very helpful and those on the gatehouse especially. We didn't visit on an official open day or applicant day but found all areas open to view and people ready to answer any questions we had. Great place.

This building deserves the much over-used description of "Iconic".Having read about its architecture for many years I was prepared to be disappointed but on the contrary found the building and contents to be really impressive and imaginatively displayed.

I spent some happy student years here many many years ago and find a lot of improvements, but still a lot the same. It's a great campus with interesting architecture.

Having said its huge, and it is, it is also really nice. Well laid out, clean, lots of green spaces and very pleasant. I saw no graffiti or damage and it all looks like it's brand new, it's so well cared for.

East Anglia has a wonderful campus with large green space and a lake. On a sunny day it is lovely to walk around and enjoy the 1960s architecture of the Ziggurats and the excellent Sainsbury Arts Centre. Guests can stay in Broadview Lodge at the university, some of whose rooms look towards the lake.

I'm not sure how you rate a university on TripAdvisor! If you want to study there, you might get a different view, but as a visitor it is full of mainly 1960s concrete buildings. These are imaginatively linked with walkways and the university is well-served with cafes and bars. As a small aside, if you have the misfortune to be... More

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.
