    Let's just imagine for a moment that it was your main priority at uni to have high-quality accommodation regardless of cost. Which UK university do you think could best provide this?

    Some of Imperial's halls win hands down. Those that are in South Kensington = :coma:

    Probs QMUL too...accommodation is only like five years old, it's all on campus, and it's cheap for central London :yy:

    Oxford's are quite nice too..though there are a lot of steps to climb

    TVU, Paragon Halls of Residence are good. Built in 2006, all en-suite, nice big modern kitchens, large bedrooms. Won't be the best! But still very nice.

    :ditto:

    It all depends how much you are willing to spend - most unis have the good and bad.

    Although;http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki..._Accommodation scroll down to Chancellor's Courts. Pretty damn nice tbf.

    Good point. I'm interested to know what people think the contenders are though.

    Bangor's new accom is really nice, all opened in 2008/2009. All rooms en-suite, some rooms are extra large, and it's not too expensive either.

    Certainly can't complain about the four new halls at Loughborough.

    I am quite sure the University of East Anglia has the best accommodation for halls of residence, because I think they were rated the best halls in the UK (even though I have never been there myself).

    My friend lives in one of those. £80 a week for en-suite, and it's lovely! Makes me sad

    Staffordshire has alright accommodation, its like £90 a week for ensuite but anything below that is like £64-68 quid a week. For the price its a bargain, even though the accommodation was actually designed by a prison architecht. You notice that. Alot.

    I've visited a friend's accommodation in Cambridge and could just say: Wow. Probably the best I've seen. Not really modern but very nice, quiet and the view was amazing .

    Although with Cambs it really depends on which college you're in and whether you're a 'scholar'. Much of the accommodation that I've experienced there is pretty ****, really (Pembroke).

    Brunel's good halls are pretty nice really - I hated living there (due to inconsiderate, loud, messy flatmates) but the actual hall itself was nice.
