Hey, I recently got placed in the Hampstead Campus can someone tell me the pros and cons of this campus and what I can do to counteract the cons?

Hampstead is brilliant, don't let anyone tell you otherwise! It may look a bit scummy in places, but the best way of counteracting that is to make as many friends as possible. The security is fairly lax about stuff like lots of people in rooms so long as you don't make too much noise - and then there's always the late night noise room (which is an ongoing party for most of term 1) The bar is basic but cheap and it has pool tables, always good for a laugh! Because you share a kitchen with so many people there's always someone to talk to/moan at/drink with and the rooms are alright, really - and cos they've already got marks on the walls etc you don't need to be too fussy about putting up posters and stuff.

I spent my first year at Hampstead (can you tell?!?) and it was the best year of my life... and I'm honestly not exaggerating.

Yes, I didn't even live there and loved it. Mind you, communal toilets are just weird and watch out you aren't sharing a room.

But the cleaners are lovely, the facilities are great and the whole place has a lovely rural feel.

Also, very cheap bar and excellent end of term parties.

Get a student transport Oyster card ASAP, (available now from Strand campus if you're in London), as you'll be wanting a monthly travelcard to get to either Strand or Guys campus.

Only real downside is that it's really far from the teaching campuses. And transport isn't cheap. I have a friend there who solved the problem by cyclying to and from there. So he only pays transport on days with really bad weather which thanks to global warming is becoming rarer.
