Furthermore, the university is home to the amazing Ziggurats for student accommodation, the fascinating Earlham Hall, which is a vibrant mix of historic and contemporary architecture and is now the UEA School of Law, which was also a 17th-century structure and is now the country's greenest building, and the well-known Enterprise Centre, all of which are all close by. The campus also houses the Union Pub and Bar, 24-hour Library, a concert and gig venue called the Lower Common Room (LCR). The campus is linked to the city centre and railway station by frequent buses.
