I am currently choosing my accommodation for Manchester and can't choose between the City Campus or Fallowfield. If I choose CC then I'll go for Denmark Road and Fallowfield I'd go for Richmond Park just because of what they offer as individual halls.
What I'm really conflicted about is that I hear that Fallowfield is essentially the student hub and it's basically really sociable and fun but not so much so that you can't get any work done. The disadvantage of this is that it's far away from the campus and Richmond isn't the nicest of halls.
However City Campus is much closer and I want to do drama and get involved in loads of the societies so it would be easier to access for me. However I hear the City Campus is not anywhere near as sociable because lots of people want to work and are there out of convenience rather to socialise, and I don't want to miss out on the social side of uni.
I would say my priorities are 50 per cent work/societies and 50 per cent social. I'm hardworking but I'd like to have fun too - basically I want to be in the right place. Could anyone who's lived in these halls or have similar priorities to me give me some advice? Would be much appreciated!
