Lampeter can be summed up in one word – small. Deep in south-west Wales, it’s a tiny market town with one of the littlest campuses in Britain. Student/staff closeness is a plus point, creating a strong sense of community among the sensible country folk and laid-back hippies making up the (small) student body... more detail  Lampeter specialises in Arts and Humanities, with a small splash of Business and Social Sciences added to the cocktail... more on academic  For actual cocktails, students find Lampeter town’s got all the basics in its 14 pubs, one club, and splattering of shops... more on entertainment The uni has three bars as well as an active film soc and a few club nights. With little else to do, lots of studenty energy goes into the flourishing societies and clubs... more on the SU Sporting success is surprisingly frequent but small-scale, plus plenty of mountains to climb for those with steel bums... more on sports Most undergrads live in halls, half with en-suite facilities and all on campus... more on housing 'Lamps' are all well looked after – crime’s the lowest in the UK...more on welfare.

Woohoo: Lampeter's got the personal touch - everybody knows everybody
Miles and miles (and miles) from anyone else
