The combination of an idyllic setting and a reputation for quality teaching and research makes UEA an ideal place to study. Built on 320 acres of parkland sloping down to the Broad --an 18-acre expanse of water -- the campus is one of the most innovate in the country, combining natural beauty with striking architecture. Although the campus has grown considerably since the University was founded in the 16th century, it remains compact, which helps foster a real sense of community. The heart of the campus is the Square, an outdoor meeting place surrounded by the Students' Union, shops, post office, banks, restaurants, and bars.
UEA was rated one of the best universities for student experience in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2014. Currently 3rd out of all UK universities, UEA has placed in the top six since the survey began.
Our students have voted for us on the strength of our high quality of lectures, our amazing facilities, including sports, and our welcoming social environment on campus. We have invested in the things that matter to our students - IT facilities including a 24 hour Library, a network of Student "hubs" for academic support and our Careers Service at CareerCentral which offers mentoring and encourages student enterprise.
With over 150 clubs and societies, a Students' Union with an excellent reputation for live music and our very own museum and art gallery on campus in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, UEA offers an amazing student experience.
