Best halls at Bristol? Watch
I've got Bristol as my insurance and I think there may be a good chance that I missed grades for my 1st choice uni so I've been looking at accommodation at Bristol.
I visited the uni and had a tour but only got to see Manor Hall, which I quite liked.
I am aware that all the highly subscribed halls will already be full but in the case that Bristol give me some options I would like to know which one I would be best suited to. Here's what I'm looking for:
-quite like the halls with an old building/more traditional ones like wills/manor/goldney (although some are likely to be full)
-i would be happy with either catered or self catered
-i would prefer an en suite but happy with shared bathroom if I really like the halls
-i don't want to be in the city centre so either Clifton or stoke bishop
-definitely want a social/festive/lively hall with lots going on, a community feel and regular formals
-i got told manor hall is very theatrical, which is something I'd be interested in- are any other halls known for drama/music?
-bars/common rooms etc
Any help would be appreciated! Thank you
Hi, I was in Manor Hall two years ago and I loved it there, it truly felt like home to me for that year. I would recommend that if you can live there, you should. There was such a sense of community and plenty of chances to socialise with everyone there. I met my boyfriend who I am still with in the first week of being there! Also, this isn't just biased, I saw plenty of other halls and talked to people about their experiences and still believe Manor is one of the best halls. If you don't get in there (I know it's oversubscribed), I think Goldney is relatively similar although does have the same problem of being very popular. Most of Stoke Bishop has the older style buildings but I think if you can live in Clifton, that would be better; it's so much closer to uni, shops, clubs and basically everything you'd want to be near. I also heard a lot of people complaining about how unreliable the buses were to get from Stoke Bishop to uni. This is quite a random answer, I was just typing what I thought of! If you have any other questions, just ask.
