    I'm looking at Durham uni as well where they have colleges. The colleges there have things like their own sports teams and their own clubs/societies. And also organise many social events and have bars in them. Do the southampton halls have anything like that (bars, social events, clubs)?

    I mean what makes a hall a hall and not a college?

    Colleges are smaller, and you tend to live in a close community, even for the years you live out. The population doesn't change year by year.

    I've never lived in Halls, so I can't comment, but I definitely recommend college life. Hall life sounds fun too, but I think any societies are likely to be university wide (which isn't a bad thing - collegiate universities have them too).
