Anne-Sophie at UEA

An International Student of Literature in England.

Amazing Sights at UEA

One of the first things I heard about UEA was that the campus was really nice and green and that there were many parks in Norwich. I heard a lot about the lake since my boyfriend’s sister had visited UEA and kept talking about it 😛 .

One of the first things I did after arriving at uni was going out for a walk to see the lake. On my way there, I saw the iconic ziggurats!

It may sound silly, but I was walking along the Arts building and ended up there: I didn’t except to find the ziggurats and I was impressed because I’d seen tons of official photographs of UEA and was finally there, for real.

Seen from far away, they look really cool!  It was a beautiful day — I already feel nostalgic about the first weeks at UEA.

Since I live in the village, I get to walk next to Earlham park on my way to the campus every day.

On nice days, the view from the Sainsbury Centre is awesome! There is a sort of curtain on the window, which makes the sky look like a painting. Some of the people living in the Norfolk and Sufolk terrace have a similar view. I’m jealous about that.

Same view from outside the Sainsbury Centre. There are several scultures like that around the museum and near the lake.

Other huge sculptures around the campus…

The Sainsbury Centre itself is an awesome place! Entry is free, I recommend that you go check it out at least once.

I love seeing the sunset behind this house on my way back home…

Of course if you adore books, the library is heaven! 😛

This building is Chrome Court, UEA newest accommodation (only for postgraduates). It just looks amazing!

But to me the most wonderful place at UEA it at the very back of the lower village (where Hawthorn, Willow, and Pine are — the forgotten part of the village). I would never have discovered it if my friends hadn’t told me about it, and I still think tons of students don’t know it exists. There’s even a small river there, River Yare (according to Google Maps). It looks very special when the sun is low or around sunset.

Lots of cows and horses and sheep are free to walk around there…

We had to explore a bit to find this place, but as soon as we arrived there me and my friends thought it’d be an amazing spot for sledging in winter. Unfortunately it didn’t snow enough this year…
