The University of Hull – the 'friendly university' – puts students at the heart of everything we do. We're also proud of our academic reputation, which reflects the high quality of the education we provide and our reputation for helping to prepare students for their life and career beyond their programme of study.

"Good networks .. amazing quality of life, disposable income is really high and a big sell ... Hull is not your classic gritty industrial Northern City, it is a nice City with great access to countryside and space". Robert Crampton, Journalist, The Times, June 2011.

Hull has a reputation for being a friendly, down-to-earth university with low living costs, and as a self-sufficient campus institution, trips into the city-centre aren’t often necessary. This means it has developed a very strong sense of identity and community which – along with its world class research facilities – many students love. Stonewall Gay by degree Guide
