I am stuck on choosing halls and I would love if anyone with experience in them could give some advice on different aspects. I'm choosing en-suite rooms but I would like to know about the social side and things with the halls. All comments would be appreciated!!

Hi there,

I lived in Park Villa halls and had friends in Challinor, and the other Park Halls so you're in luck!

Firstly can I just say all of these Halls are amazing and you'll get a similar Uni halls experience in all of them so don't worry too much about the social aspect.

I chose a Villa because it looked nice, had an en-suite and was right on campus so i had close access to lecture facilities, laundry facilities and the SU. Honestly i had the time of my life in my villa and there was such a sense of community, we all cooked together, went out together and studied similar subjects. Then again this is the way all of the halls work. We even went to our friends halls that you mentioned and socialised there or had film nights there. The students from all the halls mix so there will be no activities that you miss out on. Just make sure you really throw yourself in to Halls life and make the most of this amazing opportunity. Some rooms in Challinor have a shared bathroom and some people really do prefer this. My best advice is to visit the uni or contact the uni and ask for more information about the halls. Sometimes you can only really judge these things when you see them in person, and there will be at least one that you're like "this is where i want to start my first year of uni".

Hope that helps but please comment with more questions, and i will answer them all!!!

I just loved my three years of study at Park, and it all started with an incredible year in Halls there
