    Notts is my insurance, but in case i fail or something it'd be nice to know which halls are good for me.

    They all seem so pricey! Most of the halls are catered and the self-catered ones seem quite detached from the rest of the campus and halls . Are self-catered socially as good as the catered halls, because being catered is a big inconvenience n i'd rather cook for myself.

    Basically, i'm looking for a socially active, self-catered halls that doesn't look too shabby and if it was a lil cheaper it would help too. Thanks

    Broadgate Park has around 2,200 occupants and sits over the road from University Park with its 3,000+ students. I personally wouldn't say it's cheap though.

    Raleigh Park is the cheapest standard self-catered accommodation option.

    St. Peter's Court has just over 800 but is very near-by to Raleigh Park and is all en-suite rooms...which is cheap for an en-suite.

    All depends what you'd want out of the room. If you're going to apply then you obviously need to do it sooner rather than later as you aren't guaranteed a place.

    So your opinion is that a site with over 2,000 students very close together isn't as social as just over 3,000 spread over a much bigger area, in very small halls?!

    If it was an opinion you wanted to make then why write it as a statement?!

    yes it is as they are grouped into apartments and rarely know people properly from outside their apartment + 2-3 other ones (a total of 15 people) as opposed to a group of 250-300 people of which you get to know most to some extent and pick your friends off.

    im gonna stop arguing with you over what counts as a statement and what an opinion. i hope that most people are intelligent enough to understand the difference between someone opinion and the truth and if they dont they have no business going to Nottingham.
