    Hi Eve!

    Unfortunately i havent stayed in either accommodation before but have seen both of them. Both of them arnt too far away from the University itself. New Bridge Street is a very nice accommodation, i remember it being the one i wanted to go to one of the those that i saw. It is also part of the University also, and the team there are very friendly and all lovely. I havent spoken to any thus far that hasnt liked New Bridge Street, everyone I know has enjoyed their time there! With it being part of the university also you go through the university process of accommodation selection rather than the private halls one.

    The Shield is a Private Halls accommodation, never been inside it but from the outside it does look very nice! I know they have been holding open days there recently so it might be worth having a look round or asking them if they can send you any more photos of it.

    From my experience most people tend to go with the University Halls for first year as its a good way to meet more people who are all in the same situation as you coming to University. I dont know anyone whos lived in private accommodation first year so would be unable to tell you there experiences on it.

    I hope that answers your question on it and helps you decide on accomodation, anymore questions let me know
