I personally prefer east village but everyone is telling me how great stolkbishop is. The particular accomodation it would be between riverside/unite house/chantry and hiatt baker/badock hall. Any advice?

I don’t go to Bristol but I know people who do and this is what they’ve told me about the north village/east village atmosphere.

East Village: the accommodations in the city centre are good cos they’re close to the uni and there’s a nice nightlife. A lot of international students stay there and they can be more shy/less sociable and keep to themselves. But I guess that shouldn’t matter if you’re quite confident and find it easy to start up conversations with people. Most accommodations are self-catered, that could be good or bad, depends on you.

North Village: The accommodations are nice and are catered. You tend to make a lot more friends and gain a bigger social circle in catered accommodations but they are just very expensive. It’s further away from the city centre and the uni so you have to get buses - some people don’t like that. This also means that they keep to themselves. A lot of ex private school students/tory’s stay in north residential village - this can be a pro or con, it depends on you.

From personal experience Stoke Bishop is great. Hiatt and Badock are both really social and have been to both many times. The bus journey really isn't a big deal and not all are catered - Hiatt,Badock and UH all have self-catered options.

I'd say less so as they're cheaper than Wills and aren't catered. You're gonna have some 'posh' people anywhere especially where the accommodations are a tad more expensive but met so many nice people from hiatt and especially badock who are so lovely.

I'm in riverside currently and it's great! It's definitely not as social as stoke bishop and I do often find myself commuting to there on the bus but I don't mind too much. Riverside is right on the harbour and is a really good location and a short walk from the train station and the uni itself. It wasn't my first choice but a tip for if you do apply and want to be in stoke bishop is to not put riverside or unite down as not a lot of people apply for it and so you will be guaranteed it rather than stoke bishop. If you put the one you want the most first and then fill the rest of your choices with other very popular halls you are likely to get your first choice.

i'd say either goldney or manor. Idk how it will be this year but last year when i applied for accom i had to put 9 choices down so if you really want hiatt or badock put those down first and then put the next popular ones like orchard, durdham etc because like i previously mentioned because more people apply for hiatt than spaces available, if you have any on your list like unite house even if its 9th they'll most likely give it to you to free up space for hiatt. It does help majorly though if you have a health requirement you are much more likely to get your first choice.
