George eliot (RH accommodation) or Hox Park?Watch
I've been looking at Hox park accommodation as a different option as I would be able to have a 51 week contract so sept-sept and wouldn't need to keep moving around.
I've actually been to a viewing at hox park. I loved the rooms, there's more control over preferences of which room i want and there's more freedom in having guests and not worrying about parking (the fact that guests at RH accommodation have to leave by 11pm and its very hard to park really throws me off).
All in all I really love hox park, however I'm worried about making friends with other first years or being able to socialise as it is kind of far from everything. I've been told that more first years are opting for it (ptobably due to covid) but I'm still unsure about that. I'm also concerned about travelling to the uni everyday as well as walking back alone, especially during the night as it is very excluded.
So is anyone having to make a similar decision? Are you also a first year who's considering hox park rather than the uni accommodation? please let me know. i'd love to talk to other first years (or even second years) who are opting for hox park and those opting for george eliot
