    Hi guys!

    I've just started searching for accommodation for this September but I'm a bit confused. I am considering two options, Digby Stuart collage and Southlands collage.
    Could you tell me which one of them is better, taking a look at social life,conditions etc.

    Cheers!

    I have the same problem! My course is at Southlands, however the rooms don't look as nice as in other colleges :/
    I want an en-suite room, however I don't want to pay all that money if the room's gonna be that tiny! I know the buildings are modern, so I expected more. I'm just wondering if all the rooms are really like that? I'm an international student so I can't just pop over and have a look for myself. Same goes for the kitchen - it just looks cheap and not very inviting.
    I'm otherwise tempted to go to Digby - Lee House looks nice, though I'm worried that it'll be popular and I won't get a place there. Digby is between the two colleges and seems to have more going on, as in events and facilities. Room and kitchen looks much nicer and more spacious for the same price. I don't know what to go for, and I'm nervous that I'll end up being allocated a room in a different place entirely.

    So don't you like Southlands accomodation then? Is your accomodation like it is on the website?
    And are you en-suite or standard? The former is more expensive of course but it would be nice to have a private bathroom, I think.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Id say southlands is the best in terms of the rooms, apart from chadwick and the halls being built but they are 175/week

    Southlands just isnt as social as the other colleges. Would say go digby thats where i am next year
