    Hi, hopefully I'll be going to Bristol University in September and I was wondering what people recommend as the best accommodation.
    I want to be quite close to the university and shops because I get tired easily but I don't want to miss out on the social aspect stoke bishop seems to offer. Is Clifton accommodation like Goldney Hall and Richmond Terrace good for socialising? Preferably self catered and en suite. Thanks!!

    Yeah me too! Did you notice though that Goldney only has a few en suite rooms for special needs?

    I'm currently stuck on accommodation!! I'm not sure whether to put unite house or new bridewell as my second choice. And all the third choice halls seem very much the same (Waverley, rackhay, favell) Please tell me anything you know about them that could help!!

    Hi,

    I'm wanting to be in Stoke Bishop and I don't really mind self catered or catered; I'm thinking about going for Hiatt Baker self catered (which seems so oversubscribed so it's a bit of a long shot) and then Will's as my second- is this a bad idea? Because I know Will's is already very competitive so does having it as a second choice, if i don't get Hiatt baker SC, mean I'm pretty much not going to get either of my choices?

    Thanks

    They tend to put the postgrads in a flat together rather than mix with undergrads! But I have friends that have been in UH and Goldney this year and both have loved it (UH is further away from uni but stoke bishop halls are very social - UH are very close from what I've heard!)

    Hi

    I want to be catered and I'm thinking of putting Clifton Hill House as my first choice. All other catered options seem to be in Stoke Bishop, so I was considering putting Hiatt Baker as my second choice (I thought this might be a bit safer than putting Wills second?).

    So my main question really is: would it be a waste of time/bad idea putting Wills second? Should I put Hiatt Baker second instead, would that be 'safer'? I don't want to end up with nothing!

    Thanks for your help

    I've just finished my first year and I can't recommend the Clifton halls (Goldney, Manor and Clifton Hill House) highly enough. They're all a good standard with nice gardens, in the most beautiful part of the city and only a really short 10 min walk to Uni. You'll really appreciate having a short walk to lectures as opposed to having to wait for and then catch a bus to and from uni all the time, which a lot of my friends couldn't be bothered to do and so skipped a lot of lectures.

    Plus, you're still close to the city centre and only 5mins from the Triangle which is full of clubs. If you've got any questions about the Clifton halls feel free to message me - I was in Clifton Hill House but know a bit about both Manor and Goldney too.

    Hi, do you know any other accommodation that's good out of Stoke bishop? Clifton are all first choice only and I put Manor as my first. I don't know what to do for my second choice because I'd rather not be in Stoke bishop because of the distance. I know this isn't advice you offered but I thought you might know people who went to other accommodation outside Stoke bishop? Thanks so much!!
