    Marketgate, in fact Favell. Anywhere in the City Centre is better than the Student Village. I'm currently a second year and I lived my first year in Favell. Everything (I mean literally everything minus the actual University) is within walking distance. You'll never pay for a taxi and because Marketgate is run by UWE you get a free Ulink bus pass. You won't regret it, trust me. I live in a house in Horfield now and I regret moving out of the City Centre. Also, Marketgate is cheaper, Unite care less (on Student Village they have too much security and you have to sign guests in and out).

    THIS, I haven't lived in MG but everyone I know who's lived there loved it. I lived on campus in first year, so boring, and now I live in the centre which is AMAZING, and the people are so so much nicer! The only disadvantage is having to rely on buses to get onto campus, but it's so worth it, seriously.

    This is why I wish I'd been on TSR before I came to uni, so someone could tell me how much better living in the centre is!
