    Hi all,
    Thinking of applying to Kensington Terrace, Marris House or park view student village? I ideally would self catered accommodation which is fairly sociable (like not too isolated such as the view which can apparently be a very unsociable accommodation). Really not arsed about having an en-suite, would be nice but i'm not fussy and I also don't care about what size bed i have either! Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Thanks

    Hey Mez,

    I don't know too much about Kensington Terrace, so I can't offer you much advice on that front. But I did live in Marris House myself and found it to be quite a good balance on the social front, it wasn't super rowdy, but everyone from different flats did interact and invite each other on nights out etc. We had 2 bathrooms between 6 of us in Marris, which was quite a good number - you didn't have to wait for ages in the morning to get ready but you also didn't have to pay the premium for an ensuite, plus you got a sink in your room for brushing your teeth/washing your face etc.

    Richardson Road accommodation used to be the most "sociable" (AKA the party halls), which has now been demolished in favour of Park View -- as Park View is brand new it's difficult to offer any advice on this. I will say Ricky Road was known as more of a party location because it was the cheapest and least flashy accommodation, obviously this has changed since they rebuilt it and it's now all brand new with ensuites etc so no doubt the vibe of the halls will change as well.

    Marris and Park view are really close to each other, meaning if you stay in one of them there will always be loads of fellow students around for you to socialise with.

    Hope this helps a little bit.

    Hi Maisie,
    Thanks for getting back to me. I am definitely going to consider Marris House- seems affordable but still nice
    Thanks for your help x
