Hi, I've chosen Loughborough as my first choice uni and was wondering if any current students could give me some advice as to which halls of residence are the best or which areas (e.g West, Village, Central or East). Thanks!

It all depends on your needs: any price limits? en-suite? catered/self catered?

Bill Mo - just off campus, near the Union
Towers - Eventually will be the tower block right near the english department, not far from the Union, catered (which will save you money in the long run and give you a twice daily social experience but does restrict what and when you can eat)
Then for the 'student life' there is the village halls (Rutherford, Cayley, Faraday, Royce) - all catered, about 10 minutes from the Union, 15 minutes from English, near a shop, near the library.

Actually towers is bound to be great this year! The downside is that it's catered..

If you can actually cook and club together with flatmates/housemates, you can actually save a bunch.

Absolutely.

For catered halls the meal times put you in social situations 2-3 times a day, which is helpful for friend making.

For self-catered, I guess if you all eat together then that introduces a strong bond

it depends if you're on a high or low budget; when i visited at an open day robert bakewell looked the best but you pay for it i.e. it's expensive
so,

i chose telford because it's near the chemistry dep, cheap, in the village - near library, shop, bar , sports ect the downside is i will have to share a bathroom...

hope this helps?!

If anyone is still reading this thread, I'm also wondering where I would like to move in. I'll be studying Computing and Management. Prefer a social setting, catered and on the cheaper side. Suggestions?

Hi Mattchuh

You're move in date is in your contract that you would have had as part of paying your room bond.

Have a read through and if you still can't find it, send me a PM and I'll look in to it for you.
