I'm in the same situation, from what I've read online Clive booth and Cheney are the most sociable. Chaney is closer to campus and the gym (I believe its right next to the sports centre) Supposedly Cheney has this stigma of being the place of "daddy's money" and is referred to as chateau Cheney but this is probably not true and more of a banter thing. My brother lived in Cheney and loved it but that was 4 years ago. It's still one of the larger halls so no doubt its good for socialising. In my opinion, Chaney looks newer. It's also a longer contract which is it why it is slightly more expensive. As for Clive booth its a 5 min walk from campus so still convenient. Clive booth is slightly bigger which to me is more attractive as more rooms =more people to socialise with. From what I'm read people who live in Clive booth people love it and honestly Clive booth and Cheney seem equally as good.

Definitely, have a look online at the virtual tours. Hope this helps - What course are you doing?

Does anyone know when we can start applying for halls?

Hi,
Congrats on your offer for Brookes!

There are lots of options for accommodation at Brookes, all are great for different people depending on what type of thing you like, which campus you'd like to be close to, what your budget is, what course you do (some courses require longer contracts) or if you need family accommodation.

Here's a link to our accommodation page which gives you all the details of each hall: https://www.brookes.ac.uk/studying-a...tudents/halls/

Personally I live at Westmintser Halls on Harcour Hill, I love it there because it's so close to all of my lectures, it slightly more out of the city and there's so much wildlife around campus, which is something I love. However, if you want to be closer to Headington, Wheatly or the City Centre you might to try a different hall. (All are connected by Brookes Busses though, which are currently free to students on a full time course.)

Choosing a hall is a really personal choice so it's hard to give advice on which hall is 'best'because it's different for everyone
I would say the best advice is to have a look at all the different accommodation options online, (including the virtual tours!) take a look at where they all are on a map compared to where you will study and then make a list of which look best for you, taking into consideration size, location and your budget

Or if you can come and see us on an open day and take a look at all of our accommodation, it'll give you opportunities to speak to students who live in different halls too. We've got plenty of open days coming up soon, just take a look here: https://www.brookes.ac.uk/open-day/

Hopefully this helps, please let us know if you have any more questions.

All the best,
Catrin
Student Ambassador
