    What activities will there be in each college? I want to socialise, but I'm afraid that some activities may not suit me. (I'm not very keen on sports at all.)

    Besides, can anyone tell me about how's the people in each college? I don't want my neighbours to be boring on one hand, but on the other hand I don't suppose them to be too noisy at night either.

    I'm interested in Park Wood, Turing, and Darwin at the moment after I've roughly gone through the details of each accommodation. So which one would you recommend to me?

    Thanks a lot!!!

    The collegiate system isn't a true one like Oxbridge. Instead, think of the colleges as different names for accommodation blocks - you're free to go into any of the college buildings/bars and it's very likely you'll have lectures/seminars in most of them. In that sense then, there's not really college-based activities. There are societies however, which anyone can join - a lot are 'non-sporty' so you can choose to join whatever based on your interests.

    As for what it's like to live in them, it's mostly the same really. After all, each of them has a varying bunch of first years getting a foothold on independence! Parkwood does gain more of a reputation for noisy nights. It's easier to hold house parties there given that it's like a mini-village and well, there are actual houses. So it's often regarded as a more sociable place to live, though in truth all of the colleges are sociable and you won't ever be able to completely avoid noisy nights. Nor are more 'boring' people found in some accommodation over others.
