Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone is applying to either? Or lived in either?
Oxford court looks a bit nicer and is bigger, and briarfields is the same price if you want an en suite (I do).
just wondering if anyone knows what the night life is like in either of them? I want a place i can get very drunk and make friends! But also dont want to live in a hole (cambridge or cavendish) i just dont like the idea of sharing a shower and a toilet with 15 strangers really, and like a communal area not just a kitchen.
thanks

Heyy! I'm applying for Briarfields! I'm pretty much the same as you, looking to get very very drunk hahaa. I've heard that Briarfields is really good for the social aspect of things. I'm applying for my own ensuite too, hate the idea of sharing a bathroom with other people! X

Me too, have you looked at the kind of things happening at freshers? Looks so good! Scouting for girls, uv parties, beach parties and other things that I can't remember. The halls we're staying in are really close to the bars and stuff so hopefully everything's near. Have you applied for student finance? X

Nope you're the only person I've spoken to really. I've spoken to another girl but she's staying in different halls that I didn't really fancy. Are you defiantly applying for Briarfields halls? X

doing briarfields then Oxford (because they're owned by like the same management) then biting the bullet and putting Cambridge as 3rd but I don't really want to go there. I've heard the night life is amazing but I just want my own ensuite and space and would like a good night's sleep the odd night :') x

Yeah I was thinking about Oxford but apparently it's really noisy 24/7 and you can't sleep. I'm all for going out and that but apparently the windows are really thin and you can never sleep. I dunno I'll have to look into it but if it's owned by the same people I'll probably do the same thing x
