    Methodology

    We analysed the UK's top 50 universities according to total number of students. Each university was been scored on their sexual health facilities across 4 main metrics: Website (use/quality/visibility of relevant pages in search engine results and on university website), Hours (opening hours of facilities during weekends, evenings and weekdays), Accessibility (whether facilities offer drop-ins or are appointment only) and Location (whether facilities are based on or off campus). When main facilities were based off-campus, scoring for 'Hours' and 'Accessibility' were based on the nearest service to the university. In cases of tied scores, the university that was first alphabetically was ranked higher.
