I've already put Bridges as my firm and Child's as my second but which one is best for undergraduates or just viewed better?

Hi

I may be a little biased as I stayed in Bridges in my first year and loved it!
What type of room have you chosen?
I had a premium room with a shared bathroom.
I really liked Bridges because it built a year before I started and all the facilities are modern and the rooms have a lot of space and good desks.
Bridges is only a short walk from the centre of campus so is ideal location for getting to lectures and the Students union.

Childs is in Park group, in a cluster of different halls. So, some may view this as more social as Park bar is located there where catered students can eat and it is also a bar to socialise at.
Childs is still fairly modern and provides spacious flats.
So, the answer to your question is that neither are viewed better, they are both in close proximity to the centre of campus and have good facilities.

Hope this has helped, any further questions feel free to ask!

Hello

I also stayed in Bridges too but I was in a townhouse and had a great time!!

A lot of postgraduates do stay in the premium en-suite rooms in Bridges, and in the Bridges townhouses, but the accommodation team will always try and put you with other undergraduates. So if there are lots of other undergraduates living in those room types then they may try and put you all in the same flat! Bridges is also super sociable, with a really good JCR who organise events so even if you are with some postgraduates you can still socialise with other undergraduates from the other flats in Bridges!

I also had a friend that lived in Child's hall in her first year and she loved it - so they are both great halls

Hope this helps!
