To be honest, it depends much more on the people you're with than the place you live in. I'd say that AV is relatively quiet (at least there isn't much outside noise), but in terms of your kitchen social demographic, it's totally varied. Some corridors in AV are really loud, others are totally silent with lots of non-party-type people. You put a statement about yourself on your application, so if you really want to be in a quiet area, your best chance is to say so when you apply.
To be honest, I'd actually recommend that you don't
put down that you're quiet, and see how things turn out. As someone who doesn't drink (when I moved to Warwick this was for personal reasons, but now I'm also on medication that means I can't really drink anyway, so whatever your reason, don't worry about it!
) and suffers social anxiety problems - sometimes to an absolutely crippling extent - I think being around more sociable people has been really, really good for me. I don't think I would communicate with anyone if I wasn't with people more outgoing than myself. I made some great friends when I moved to Warwick, and they all drink and go out a lot, whereas I don't drink and can be very temperamental with regard to going out. (First term I went out quite a bit, second term I didn't really go out at all)
Nobody will try to force you to drink if you don't want to, and if you want some space to yourself, you can always sit in your room. If you (or anyone else on here for that matter!) is worried about being a non drinker and wants to talk about what it's like, feel free to PM me, I know I was really concerned about it before I moved in.
