We enjoy going there almost every day to walk the track at the Works in the Memorial University. We love going there. The staff are nice. The students could learn a thing or two about manners using the gym but a nice place to use the track

Big university, sprawled over a few acres between downtown and the airport. WOrth driving around looking at the different buildings. I was not here too long, and the student residence rooms in summer are a decent alternative for a less expensive hotel room.

They bathrooms were very clean and the security to the residences were very secure. You needed your room key to even work the elevator to get to the rooms.

I attended here myself and have no complaints what so ever about the campus itself. If you're looking for a place to go for a stroll, campus is worth the look.

The son was starting there this fall so we checked out the Burton Pond residence. It had all the basic furniture and excellent storage for each room. He's going to have a great year at this terrific place.

The MUN is great for summer budget travelers, the new buildings are clean and bright. Transit is not a long walk. I wished there had been disposable dishes in the kitchen/ lounge.
