One of the best features of the Uni of Southampton is its welcoming campus. The student union, centred around a student friendly shop, hairdressers and a plethora of eating facilities, all help to create a warm atmosphere with great community spirit. The facilities are excellent, especially Hartley library which provides ample space to work and study in a safe and quiet environment. However, the downfall of the Uni comes with the failure of some of the teaching staff. Although all lecturerers are highly qualified and have carried out/participated in outstanding research projects, there are a large number, who lack the ability to teach, which in some cases can severely affect the success of the students.
