I would tell anyone that there is no better college than UL. The people are friendly, the staff are very approachable and there is a great atmosphere on campus.
Modern facilities, I don't think you'd find better at any other college.
UL has 6 different student villages. I would encourage any first year to stay in one of these as opposed to renting a house.
And of those Cappavilla is the place I consider the best!
Clubs and Societies
Loads of choice. First years, join at least one...you may regret it if you don't.
