I was wondering if any current students could give some insight into how much truth there is in the common stereotypes about each of the halls? I've heard a lot about the Tennis Courts and Mason - is there any truth in any of it? Obviously I know that there will be a mixture of people in all of the halls but I'm worried about being way out of my comfort zone with either people who are extremely loud or people who have loads of money! And do the apparent rivalries ever actually cause an issue, or is it all friendly?!
Also, how much better do you think it is to be in the Vale Village than other accommodation?
(I'm looking to apply for 2017 )
