I went to the offer day, made it my firm, but didn't see any of the halls so I'm choosing from online info only and it's hard to know what they're actually like!
Going for self-catered halls, I've narrowed it down to 4 on the basis that they all have ensuites and 3/4 beds. (I'm lucky that I don't have to worry about cost as they're all cheaper than the halls my siblings were in at different unis.) So how do I choose between:
# Catherine House (135-145pw)
- seen the 'Skylounge' online, looks good
# Margaret Rule (138pw)
- older but refurbished?
# Chaucer (148pw)
- brand new, but only 2 pics online to go by!
# Greetham Street (148-154pw)
- gather it's newer, has a good communal space?, but more expensive
Grateful for any help you can give me!
What are the downsides?
