Bristol Accomadation Advice? Which halls best suit me?Watch
I’m stuck deciding between two unis at the moment and Bristol is one of them.
I was doing some research into Bristol accommodation and I wonder which halls you guys think are best for me?
I probably would prefer an ensuite and would like self-catered (though not too fussed). I want to have a great social life, live with people who like going out and make new friends. I would like to be with a diverse mix of students - bristol seems to have a big private school reputation, so being surrounded by majority private school people in halls/my flat is a worry for me coming from a state school to be honest.
Stoke bishop seems to have a great community feel, but then clifton/city centre seem to be less snobby/‘private schooly’?
What do you guys recommend? Any help appreciated?
I have some friends from clifton/city centre but I can't really say something good or bad about those since I don't know a lot.
If you really want an en-suite and self-catered accommodation then you'll just have University Hall, Hiatt Baker and Durdham choices for Stoke Bishop. Durdham is usually (idk why) pretty quiet but it may not be next yar. UH is the cheapest hall, kitchens are smaller, rooms are smaller etc. but it's not like people can't manage to live there. If you are trying to save money and can live with a little discomfort you can choose it. HB is what you call "normal". It'a basic hall that you'd expect from a normal university. When you imagine a university accommodation, you're probably imagining something like HB.
My advice would be also think about non-en-suite and catered accommodations, you'll have much more options.
I just wanted to clarify, does Badock offer self-catered accommodation too? Bristol's website seems to filter it out when searching for self-catered but on the Badock Hall page it seems to offer self-catered rooms as an option.
