    Hey people,

    Planning to go to University of Nottingham this September. Can existing students tell me more about the pros and cons of each halls of residence at the University Park Campus of University of Nottingham?

    Thanks

    Nightingale Hall is absolutely lovely, prettiest one on campus definitely but it depends what kind of uni life your after. Some halls tend to be more of a party than others

    I’ve heard ancaster or hugh Stewart, although I suppose it depends on the students your year.

    Thanks for that..
    And how about jubilee campus (self-catered halls) /Raleigh park/st peters court etc...
    Quieter? Or livelier!?

    It very much depends on who else is there. You also need to look at the rooms - some halls have at least three different sorts, from 'shared bathroom' to 'one toilet & shower per two rooms' to 'en suite', and the rooms can vary enormously in quality.

    Self-catering has the advantage that you're effectively flat-sharing whereas catered halls can have micro kitchens totally unsuitable for parties or even hanging out in.

    Have you visited?

    Yes I have visited Sherwood hall in the past. And to be honest I wasn’t impressed. The Junior common room was so plain too. I wish there were some self catered halls on university park campus.

    I may be considering St peters court, Broadgate, or even Albion House.

    What are you studying - broadgate Park is on university park which has most subjects on unless your doing comp sci or business. I lived in St. Peter’s Court last year and it was lovely and great but felt far away from university park so I imagine getting from broadgate to jubilee campus will be a pain too

    I lived at St Peters Court a few years ago! I didn’t find it far at all! I was based in Queens medical centre though but I used to walk every morning and there’s a free bus of you really want! I enjoyed my walk! Took about 10-15 minutes. I loved the atmosphere and surrounding area plus you were closer to town. The Psych building is on the perfect side of campus if you cross the QMC footbridge too! As long as I correctly recall.

    Thank you, yes Psych building is near QMC which is East Entrance of the Univ Park Campus! I can even look at Broadgate Park in that case- walk/bus both should be okay for daily commute.

    How about Nottingham Two by Student Roost?
