Whats best for one is not necessarily whats best for you. What do you want out of your accommodation? Do you want an ensuite? Do you have a budget? Do you want a double bed? A new building with facilities like a common room, study room gym ect..?

Is true but I don’t want to end up with the accomodation I ended up with at Bournemouth, it’s very different looking on paper and actually living there

All of them are good tbh. With HSV there can be some water problems a couple of times a year, but it's probably the best social wise. The singleton and bay campus are both the same tbh. It's a matter of picking one you can afford.

I was rejected for uni accommodation and got a private housing instead with others in a similar situation as me, for a far better price and value.

People have different experiences in halls though, some people will tell you that a certain accommodation is Great, whereas someone else will say its Terrible. Unfortunately youre not going to know if you like it there until you live there. Everyones experiences are different, youll always find a mix of people who love and hate their halls

Thank you. Private is definitely way to go, I just think uni provided accomodation is way forward as you get a greater opportunity to meet people. Especially considering I’m still recovering from severe social anxiety

Absolutely, doesn’t hurt to get opinions still though. If one raises an issue I hadn’t considered before then at least I’m aware of the potential problem and can think about how I could combat that. For example I did no research via reviews for my Bournemouth accommodation and I ended up living in a very gloomy room for the year, I just don’t want to experience anything like that again

Yeah, its always best to check reviews online first. There should be reviews on their facebook pages and if you google for reviews, theres some websites that have reviews for halls too. Hope ive helped

Either will tbh. I was worried I wouldn't meet anyone if I went private, but there were 100s of others in a similar situation as us, and lots of them hosted parties and pre drinks. We also randomly showed up to random flats in student halls, and its how we met most of our friends lol.

They are all sociable accommodation, and it'll be more about you getting the courage to socialise rather than the accommodation itself. Choose the one that are closest to the campus where you course is based on, as well as the one you can afford and like (look wise).
