    Hi there! I was just wondering what's the best accommodation for meeting new people and going out drinking etc
    Heya,

    There are two main types of accommodation at Staffs which are ensuite and shared.

    Shared accommodation tends to be more social as people have to come out of their rooms more frequently. Either way, our halls are self-catered so you'll be cooking and hanging out in the kitchen together whichever you go for.

    All of our halls are on campus so there's not much difference in terms of going out etc. as they're all near by each other (they're also great for getting to the SU!).

    If you've got any other questions about anything let me know

    Thanks for the reply! What about Liberty living is that a social accommodation?

    You want an on campus accommodation. All of the types of accommodation is very sociable, you have nothing to worry about on that matter. Try to go for a mixed gender (you'll get the option when you apply) accommodation though, that's the best.

    Heya, that's alright.

    Are you starting uni next year? Are you thinking about privately owned/non-uni owned accommodation rather than going in to uni halls....?

    From what I've seen shared facilities is the more social of the two types as said above people have to come out there rooms more, however if your not comfortable sharing toilets and showers it's a big sacrifice. You will still get socialising in both in the first few weeks you will learn a lot about your flat mates in either. I would recommend university halls in your first year though as you get more support and more information flowing your way if your in halls.

    Got to disagree with you there. I live in the ensuite rooms right now and I not only socialise with my own flat but the flat next to me as well. I just depends on what sort of person you are
