    Hey, will be going to cardiff uni september and am wondering which out of these two are the best accomodations if your opinion? I've ruled north out just because it doesn't appeal to me.

    I've read court has a bigger kitchen and bigger rooms (and beds, desks) than south but is this by a really noticable difference? As it is an extra £10ish a week not sure it it be worth the extra £500 overall.

    And when everyone says south is a lot more socialable what does this mean? surly people go out to socialise, do people mean just walking from room to room or something?

    Thanks for replies!

    Both seem quite nice from what I've seen of them. Court especially has big kitchens with a social area in each flat. Not sure it's worth the extra cash over south though.

    That's what I'm thinking, apparently the kitchen is often a very social place,yanno like drinking before going out. But what good is that if court isn't as social as south?

    My sister lived in south and its very sociable. Like the guy above she was in a flat with only 4 rooms. She did apply for court cos it looked nicer, but mostly postgrads live there.
