    I don't know what its like now, but back when I was a fresher in 2011 Orwell & Wolfson were really quiet. Then Village/Ensuite campus had quiet flats depending on who was in them.
    Regarding the shared showers/toilets, will there be times when everyone will be in the flat or do they make the timetables different for every student?

    Generally people are mixed up by course in halls so you wont all have exactly the same timetable, that is unless your a medic or on another health course. However there could be some overlap, but its unlikely everyone would be in the flat during the day.

    What was that like? Was it generally clean? Because my accommodation right now (I'm at a different university) was horrible when I moved in and I had to do some serious cleaning in the en-suite and it still feels horrible.

    Yeah it was very clean when I move in from what I remember and the cleaner comes once a week to clean the ensuite. Kitchen was messy except just after the cleaner had been (they come twice a week), but that is to be expected and I learnt to ignore the mess pretty quickly. Didn't do me any harm.

    The village is very close, you are unlikely to feel detached. Plus it's fairly big so there are lots of people to socialise with there

    I've never heard of anyone having bathroom issues in the ziggurats. Everyone always says they never have to wait more than a couple of minutes, since there are two showers plus a toilet and the flatmates are purposely mixed from different courses, so have lectures etc at different times.

    I liked the atmosphere at the village a lot. Typically it's seen as more community focussed (cooking a Sunday lunch together style) whereas ziggs are seen as more party oriented. However, it always depends mainly on who you're with, and there will always be a mix of people, parties going on and lots of friendly socialising as they're student halls! Whichever you pick, I think you'll have a good time, and I don't think the low risk of being with people you don't like is any higher in either one compared to the other.

    There only differences are distance and room size. The Village is 5 minutes walk to the centre of campus while the on campus en-suites are practically in the middle of campus. The rooms in campus en-suites are larger than the village in terms of floor space.

    Okay, thanks sorry for bothering but curious- is there a type of people that live in the village or campus? In terms of how social they are or interests?

    It's very mixed at both, it really depends on how social you want to be. Even if people in your flat aren't particularly sociable, there will be other people in the building, on your course and in any societies/clubs you join who will be social and have similar interests to you.

    Like I said before it's very mixed in both. It really does depends on how sociable you want to be. Make friends with people from your building, your course and clubs/societies and you'll be able to build a good friendship group.

    The Village rooms are smaller than the Zigs, mostly because they have a bathroom in them. There's a good amount of storage space in each too.

    Thought it might be worth pointing some of you to our new student vlogger, Nina, who has just produced a quick video from her room in the Ziggurats. Feel free to comment on her video with questions!

    Two things to consider:
    1) Your budget- student finance+ any additional money you might recieve from parents/job
    2) Depending on your budget Your preference- do you want ensuite? on campus? very sociable? a bit quieter?
