I'll most likely be living in private halls when I start uni this year (graphic communication & illustration) for financial reasons and i'm mostly looking at The Faundry. It looks fairly nice and ends up cheaper than the uni accommodation i was originally considering, even for the full 48 weeks.
It's a 15-min walk from my department and I'll be visiting my boyfriend fairly often, and I'd also like to get a job in town, so the location seems ideal.
I have a few worries though..
Will living in private halls impact my uni experience drastically?
I'm personally not interested in freshers at all, drinking/clubbing/going out etc just isn't my thing so i'm not too worried about that, but i've heard it could get lonely since most private halls are full of post-grad and there isn't as much emphasis on the socialising. I'd like to make some good friends, whether theyre from my course or halls.
Has anybody had any experience living at The Faundry? I've tried looking around but can't seem to find much. How does it compare to the other private halls? (asha house, kingfisher, waterways etc)
What makes you memorable?
