    I don't know anyone in woodland court actually.. apply to Manor! It's amazing! And in the booklet it sends you it says that it takes 35 mins to walk to uni from Stokie B, but it's actually more along the lines of 45 mins, and it takes 20 mins from the clifton places ;p From what people have said of the other clifton halls of rez, they're good as well =p

    Also in clifton you're v. near to the one and only 'Coronation Tap' with its famous exhibition cider (many a night stumbling home from that one...including this one time I went and told this guy 'I think your arms are hot').

    I'm guessing you're in manor hall then Would you say that the corridoor style is harder to get to know people (less sociable) than the flat stlye accommodation? Also do you end up with more people sharing a bathroom and kitchen?

    Yes!! Am in Sinclair (flats) myself.. I would say its quieter than the corridors, but am v close to my flat mates, and have corridor friends as well, and I just go invade their kitchens when I want There are up and downsides to both, flats can be quieter, and sometimes you don't like your flatmates, but it also means not as noisy when you have to catch some ZzzZs because you have to wake up early to get to those pesky 9am lectures (and they are EVERY DAY. We only had about 3 10ams this year, and we consider them a 'lie in'). Corridors present more tempation to go out, and people knock on your door quite a lot for to chat etc, which is nice, but not productive when you're trying to study. It depends on you really, theres an 'about me' section when applying for accom that you have to fill in, if you say you're a social butterfly that needs constant companionship you'll probably be placed in corridors.

    In a corridors, the kitchen is the social hub, and you get to know people very easily. It depends on you as a person of course, if you stay hidden in your room then you won't get to know anyone. There is also the MH bar (pound a pint wednesdays!!) to get to know people, and there are movie nights etc in the junior common room.

    In corridors the bathroom situation is ok, my corridor friends have never had issues, but kitchens can be messy. There is not usually a lack of cooking space, but some people are v. inconsiderate when it comes to 'borrowing' your stuff and then not even washing it after use, but cupboards can be locked. This is much worse in boy's corridors.

    Yep, you got it! Manor hall has a main building, made up of single sex corridors, also where the library, computer room, laundry room and bar are and where they put on amateur productions.

    Then you have other bits around that, like Sinclair which is blocks of single sex flats of 5, and as well as sinclair you have manor house, which is only girls, and richmond house, which is only boys, and fun fact, has the oldest flushing toilet in clifton. Sinclair rooms are much smaller than the other ones though, which isn't a deal breaker for me, I love my room, but you might want to consider it if you like it big and spacious. Oh and if you want to have overnight guests, the beds are miniscule, but you can rent matresses from the office for 2 pounds a night.

    Goldney is nice, it looks a bit like a ship from the inside, with brick walls painted over in white. Its mixed sex, and its in mini corridors / larger flats.

    Both manor and goldney have wicked formals, I think you'd love being at either one of them. Tbh, most halls have formals and their own bar, except I think UH. They filmed casualty in manor a few weeks back I think its airing in summer lol.

    Love how this is turning into a bristol thread atm! Thanks, this is really helpful, exciting learning little things like this I like the way that there is variety in manor hall but will have to wait and see...

    Have they told you anything about AVS 2010 yet? I know it's in edinburgh, do you think it will be really expensive because it's a long way to travel?

    6 months!! :woo:
