    I've just accepted my place to study History at Southampton and have applied for accommodation in Glen Eyre. I just wanted to ask (people who are living there now - specifically the Chamberlain Halls) what their thoughts are on it to check its what I'm after. What kind of atmosphere, people, all that kind of thing?

    Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

    Chamberlain is great because it's nearby Uni. It's bad because it's super expensive and there aren't any shops nearby. Unless you get maximum maintenance loan expect to eat gruel. I'd recommend the cheapest halls you can find - Montefiore or Glen Eyre - as there's an inverse correlation between the amount you spend and the quality of night life, plus you can relate by how crappy everything is! You'll even have money left over after semi-decent food!

    Go to Chamberlain if you want to talk to a load of posh middle class kids that failed to get into Durham and their gap yaaah. Go to Montefiore or Glen's cheap accommodation for normal people.
