    Im really confused about which accommodation is best?? At the moment, im looking at Trafalgar Hall? Or maybe Burrell or Rees Hall because it's catered?

    These are the main things i want:
    - quiet place
    - less drunken people in corridors in the middle of the night?
    - close to library/town/campus (im doing business if that helps)
    - en suite
    - somewhere where i could watch netflix all day instead of going out partying?
    - not a fan of night life

    Of course I would prefer walking but if accommodation is far away from uni buildings/lecture buildings but are there bike hire services around?

    I would appreciate if you could also state the distances (time) between the accommodation to the campus too?

    Thank you!

    I got the impression that the Margaret Rule Hall is a rather peaceful accommodation when I visited the open day.I'm also looking for a more "quiet" accommodation. Not really a party animal myself either

    why not do a house share? I reckon they are more peaceful.

    I was looking into that! Do you perhaps know where best to look for roommates?
    I'm from the Netherlands and don't know anyone in the UK, so sadly I can't share a house with people I already know.
    That's why I was recommended to live in a dorm my first year, in order to meet new people.

    I am looking for a house share in September I don't want to go to an accommodation because I have seen my friends at another uni having messy kitchens and annoying neighbor students from other flats and I can't deal with that plus I need parking for my car.
    This website is by far the most useful and its on similar basis as uni accommodation but you just live off campus with other students.http://www.rightmove.co.uk/student-a...ortsmouth.html

    Thanks so much! I'm surprised that a lot of houses are much cheaper than uni accommodation.. the houses also look 10 times better haha! I'm really going to consider this instead. If I were to live on campus everything is on walking distance, but it wouldn't really matter to me if I have to take the bus every morning.

    So what are you planning to study?

    Hello!

    I live in Bateson Hall at the moment and I think it's very quiet (I can relate to everything you wrote in your first post). I have a couple of posts on my blog regarding accommodation: this one is specifically about Bateson, while this is the first of two posts collecting opinions about other halls and comparing them to Bateson, which is the one I know best.

    I hope you'll find them helpful!
