    I’ve firmed Warwick to study economics, but I wanted some help with choosing my accommodation. I know there is a lot of information on the website but i’d rather know about people’s experiences/opinions.I’ve got it down to my top 6: arthur vick, bluebell, heronbank, jack martin, lakeside and sherbourne.Can you tell me a bit more about each like: how friendly/sociable, how quiet/noisy, how far from lectures, room size etc. Thanks

    im at Warwick at the moment living in Tocil.
    The best residences, hands down seem to be JM and AV, with AV seeming to be the more social one.
    Bluebell looks so nice, basically like a hotel, but too nice for student living in my opinion. You'll also have to handle the stick you'll get for being a posh ****.
    I have a few friends from heronbank/lakeside/Sherborne and all they say is that it's so far away and they wish they had picked one closer to central campus.
    I would consider Tocil, as I would personally recommend it.
    Any questions, just ask

    Are there any twin sharing rooms on campus? I couldn't find any on the site. How's the bathroom sharing? Is it weird or does it work out okay?

    All of the rooms are about the same size, give or take. There is far more variation in noise/"social" levels within accommodations than between them, and nowhere is a long way from anywhere. Pick based on cost, let length and whether or not you want an en suite.

    There are a few in Westwood, that are used on a temporary basis in case of a room shortage. Bathroom sharing is fine.

    There are a few twin rooms in Sherbourne and Rootes. They are only offered to applicants who tick Yes to the question: Are you willing to share a room?

    Heronbank, Lakeside and Sherbourne are just a ten minute walk to the centre of campus.
