    Hi, never started a thread before but worth a shot! I have received an offer for History (of which I have made my firm choice).

    I don't want catered accommodation but all halls are? Would you suggest Halls or Student houses for first year? I noticed that some houses have up to 300 rooms so I guess they're just as sociable but I assume there wouldn't be as many first years?

    Thanks people

    the way ucl describes halls/houses isn't the same as other unis they use "halls" to mean "catered accommodation" but "houses" to mean "self-catered accommodation". trust me the student houses ARE student halls haha~ almost everyone in the "houses" are first years! so if you want self-catered halls apply for housing
