    Ramsay is probally the most social of the catered halls, not sure how near it is though.

    The only other non-intercollegiate halls apart from Ramsay is Ifor Evans in Camden which is too far away for you so probably just think about whether you want to be with other university students or not, price, possibility of ensuite etc to help decide

    My boyfriend was in intercollegiate halls last year, Canterbury Hall, and he thought it was fine but not that sociable because he was put in a hallway with just him and one other person in it! I guess that was just bad luck though. My friends that went to Ramsay seemed to really like it and thought it was quite sociable

    Hughes Parry/ Canterbury/Commonwealth are all intercollegiate, catered halls with a 5-10 minute walk away from UCL...
    Commonwealth is the only one that does food on the weekends though.

    Well, that's not true. It's only Canterbury that doesn't do food on the weekend. Half of Canterbury go to Commonwealth to eat on weekends, then the other half go to Hughes Parry for food.

    I always did think it never got packed at Commonwealth seeing as there were 3 halls to feed...

    Ahh yeah, unfortunately I'm the side of Canterbury that has to go to Hughes Parry. Which has a queue outside the door on weekends for food. They can't fit everyone in.

    Aww no! Can't you sneak into Commonwealth or do you need a card or something?

    I'd love to try. All of my friends are from the other side of the hall, so I have no one to eat with on weekends. So I just don't really eat hall food on weekends.

    I know of someone who tried it but they got kicked out and barred and someone announced: "everyone with green cards please leave". So they did find out this was happening!

    I'm a bit too scared to try it.

    I think Hughes Parry might have single sex floors. I was at someone's room there once and they were on an all boys floor and they had to share a shower/toilet room with the whole floor too. I'd really hate that!

    Can you write that you'd prefer a single sex floor on your application? And if the floor is mixed do girls and boys share the same bathrooms/showers? Thanks
