    I've been told on more than one occasion that Glenamara is the social accommodation. I've put it as my first choice 😊

    Off the top of my head, I know Liberty Quay and Trinity Square have common rooms (not sure how much use they get though). Glenamara and Winn Studios can have up to 8 and 10 people in a flat as well though, so I imagine that'll be social too. The SU also have their own Halls Facebook groups too so you can meet new people in your accommodation too.

    Yeah I applied for four I think, some are so expensive. Might be flat/building mates haha. I don't suppose you have Twitter? I don't tend to use Facebook, but it'd be nice to get to know some people beforehand 😅

    I can't decide!! looked at glenamara when I went on the open day but I really didn't like it, I liked Winn Studios when I went on the open day and I want somewhere social though so as I can meet new people.

    My son was in Glenamara a couple of years ago and he found it very social. He was always going to parties in different flats! When I visited it was always clean and well looked after, and why pay £800+ more a year just for your own en-suite. He wasn't bothered. His room had a washbasin and there was a bath, shower (2?), 2 toilets, all in separate rooms within the flat. He was in one of the larger flats for 8 people. It had a really big kitchen and sitting and eating area. My younger son has now applied for Glenamara this year.
    tbh all the accommodation I have seen at various unis are superior to anything we had years ago so try not to worry too much! Students are supposed to "slum it" a bit!!!
