    i say sheffield for modern comfort- it has a little community with amazing facilities and really cosy comfortable rooms and flats.

    nottingham has the most AMAZING buildings, all with courtyards and that period feel to them, though they can be a bit dingy on the inside...

    I believe Oxbridge, simply for size. One of my friends brothers has a room at I-forget-which-college that has an antechamber approximately the same size as a normal student bedroom...

    You liked the accommodation at Nottingham? Euch. Grot. The Trent building is nice from the outside, but no halls there.

    Magdalen College Oxford has the most obscenely nice rooms. Students with separate living/study rooms, overlooking a deer park, etc etc. But then they have to work seriously hard even by Oxford standards.

    The new accommodation at Sussex is really nice (if too modern for me) and some looks over the Sussex Downs.

    ok well i think oxbridge is obviously going to peep up here.... the rooms being very much older and so therefore larger than standard etc.

    is there any uni that has balconies on their rooms? that would be something :P

    I also stayed there the day/night before the open day and I imagine it would be a great place to live.

    Hmmm when I was down for interview at Oxford, the room I was in at Somerville was properly crap, just a standard size room but it was ridiculously cold, IIRC the glass was single pane but the heating in my room had broken and I had to wear a coat in bed, bad week.

    Leicester! The rooms were bigger than average and had little en-suites (most of them anyway) with a toilet and tiny shower. It was like a pod

    Some rooms in Christ's College Cambridge have balconies apparently.

    I doubt very few people are i a good position to say. How many people have even seen more than 2 or 3? Most people can just say whether their unis accommodation is nice or not.

    In my biased opinion - the location of Imperial's halls can't be beaten; Beit is in one of the nicest areas of London, literally right across the street from the Royal Albert Hall. Though i admit, because it is in London, the sizes can be small even for uni accommodation... though not terrible.
