    All the pics I have seen of rooms and common rooms make it look crap.

    I'm probably one of these pikey kids that only got in because of them trying to change their rep but still, even my room is way better than the likes seen here.

    How do the rich people put up with it if they are used to some massive bedroom, expensive furniture, professionally decorated?

    It just all looks cheap and crap. If I was some privately educated guy I'd be disgusted.

    Well those are student houses not halls. I'd have thought the stereotypical Rah would live in a catered Hall.

    Catered Halls dont tend to have en-suites though.

    Would the rich boys be happy with that?

    I tell you what pisses me off most though. Those blue plastic chairs.

    What the hell are they about? They seem to be everywhere

    My cheap arse secondary school had better chairs than that.

    Not great, but they look livable.

    A new chair, your own touch and it'd be fine.

    Yeah, I must admit, I like a whinge for the sake of it.

    But still, it does surprise me that the place with a very high average family income (compared to other Unis), looks so poor. I'd have thought they'd like more than 'livable'.

    Nevermind, like you say, I'll have to sort it out myself.

    Well, er, Bristol accommodation isn't amazing - in fact it's certainly inferior (at least inside) than most other unis I've been to.

    As for why the rich kids accept it...God knows. I don't suppose they have much choice, but then they all go catered anyway, and then in other years live in Daddy's flat in Clifton.

    Nuff said,

    As someone said those pictures are just from student houses, they don't represent all the Bristol Uni's Residences !

    Anyway, why are you concerning about them too much ? Are you going to Bristol this Fall ?

    So I suppose all the others are happy to cope with what the landlord provides in your idea...

    You have to bring your own TV. But they give you furniture. I say they give it to you, what actually happens is they go rooting round local skips and just put whatever they find in there in your room.
