University of Hertfordshire gained university status in 1992 but its history dates back to 1952 when it was Hatfield Technical College. The university is divided into two main campuses: College Lane and De Havilland and another in St Albans which is exclusively for The College of Law. The purpose built De Havilland campus provides great sports facilities and stylish en suite accommodation. September 2009 sees the opening of the Forum, a new student venue which will house a massive auditorium, bars, a club and restaurant. Although located in Hertfordshire, London is very close by.
There is a wide selection of accommodation which is guaranteed for first years. Prices range from £66 to £102 a week.
The Learning Resources Centre is one of the biggest in the UK and offers 24hour access. Another library is located at the De Havilland campus. Other facilities include the Western Auditorium used for art events and a £10m media centre which has the latest technology for music, film and multimedia.
The sports village is located on the De Havilland campus and boasts a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment for fitness, swimming and climbing. It is principally for student use but is also open to the local community.
Very good transport links. The University own a bus company, Uno, which runs a service around Hertfordshire for students, staff and members of the public. A free shuttle is available, taking you to each campus. London Kings Cross is only 20 minutes away by train and the University is located right off the A1M with good access to the M25.
At the moment, Font, the Students Union is where most of the action happens. Wednesday houses the legendary 'Bonk' which is always a sell out night and on Fridays there is 'Flirt' which usually is a themed night with a celebrity line up. September 2009 sees the opening of the Forum, a massive venue which will take over the students union. The university runs coaches to Watford which has amazing nightlife, and Kingston where you can go to Oceana. In terms of shopping, The Galleria is a five minute walk but hopping on a bus to St Albans or Watford may be preferred. Hatfield has a range of restaurants including GBK and Nandos and also has a cinema.
The University of Hertfordshire provides a friendly environment where you are bound to make many life long friends. Each campus is very easy to get around and the university has an excellent reputation for learning and teaching on top of a great support service offered to its students.
