"...the joy that is the London Underground, Goldsmiths can be reached by either getting off at New Cross station or New Cross Gate both in Zone 2(the College is situated somewhere in the middle) which are both situated on the end of the Southern side of the East London line. This is something I hate about Goldsmiths as I commute from East London daily and reliable and regular are not two adjectives I'd use to describe the service on this particular stretch. ..."

They had brilliant club nights on wednesday, however Freshers Week was a bit rubbish. Disability Support: I had a tough time with this as they gave me NO information and when I went to see them they were really unhelpful. Accommodation: I stayed in Loring Hall, ..." Read review

Goldsmiths Living

AdvantagesFantastic social network, large gay population, central location

Disadvantagespoor post graduate employment rates, poor resources

"Goldsmiths is one of those colleges where everyone seems to be having a great time all the time, however this wears thin after a while. I found Goldsmiths to be under-resourced and at times the staff just didn't seem to care about the welfare of the students. Of all the colleges currently operating in London, Goldsmiths actually has one of the worst post graduate employment rates. Yes, this is partly because it is a predominantly art based college, ..."
