What College Should I Apply To?Watch
Which colleges have the best social life, catering, accommodation, facilities (most importantly gym and library)?
Also what is the difference between Hill and Bailey colleges? Please help!
The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

You'll find that there are more similarities than differences between the colleges. The most apparent difference between Hill and Bailey is location - Hill colleges are convenient for the Science Site, which is where all the sciences and the main library are found. Bailey colleges are closer to the city centre and also to where English is taught, so they'll offer you quicker walks. However, it's undeniable that Bailey colleges are also more traditional - Castle (University College) and Hatfield especially. Castle will give you quite a unique "Hogwarts" experience, especially if you get to live in the castle itself. Of the others on the Bailey, Cuths (St Cuthbert's Society) and Hatfield are the larger ones - probably good for social life. Catering's basically the same across the board and accommodation will differ even within each college because they're made up of a number of buildings. Can't speak for gyms but I know Cuths has a nice library
