Mod Note: This thread is now nearly 10 years old, so some of the information on the first posts might be out of date. If you want up to date information on accommodation at the University of Bristol, here's a link to their website http://bristol.ac.uk/accommodation/ or you can post in the 'ask a current student' thread as well
Putting some FAQs to rest;
There are 5 Catered Halls of Residence at Bristol, and 4 Self Catered.
Due to the lack of spaces not evey student will get into hall. Living in a student house inevitably changes your first year at university, but not necessarily in a bad way. Living in a student house is a much more independent way of life. This infamous realm, 'out of hall' will not ruin your first year. For example, Fry Haldane is a society run specifically for students not living in hall. - Bristol SU
Hope some of the current students could post pictures of their halls (rooms, kitchen, dinning hall etc). It would really be beneficial for us future students esp in choosing our desired halls.. Thanks!
If you want to know what the halls look like from above there are high resolution photos on google earth, just type in BS9 1UB and you go straight to stoke bishop with Durdham in the middle. If that sounds too much effort look at the atached piture
wth, even durdham ppl get better chairs than us at HB -.- the chairs at manor house r great, very good back support n everything, unlike the crap chair at HB, my backache has been continuing for 2 weeks, going on to week 3 now damnit. i asked if they could change the chair but then got a no for the answer. y cant we all just haf same chairs in all the halls sigh. mayb i shud smuggle a chair from a room in manor house XD

Your rooms aren't though.
Matt - nice room! I'm liking the mat and the lamps - very smooth.
What's not pretty about the rooms?
I think my room is very pretty, especially with the fairy lights on. Will be even more so once I've replaced the curtains. Don't know about everyone else, but I quite like the fact that my furniture looks brand new.

Wow, I like my room but it's rubbish compared to everyone else's on here! It is really small with a sink. That's about it really! I have really made it my own though, it's totally covered in posters and photos, I love it .
