Hi there,

Current Year 12 here looking at Exeter University. I was just wondering which halls are the most sociable, and what facebook groups to join etc to find flatmates for future. I know it’s a year in advance but I want to be prepared! Also a question - would a degree in solely communications or english literature with communications be more helpful? Thankyou!

Hey, I am currently a fourth year at Exeter, so I can give you a brief summary of the different halls:

I was in one of the cheapest (and smallest) halls called Ransom Pickard, which was catered. Not the nicest interior, but we were all a down-to-earth lovely group, and there was a lot of socialising between different floors in the building.
If you're looking for something a bit nicer, or uncatered, maybe Lafrowda or Birks Grange would be better. They're the biggest set of halls as far as I know, and a lot of my friends who lived there seemed to like it and definitely made good friends.
If you have a bigger budget, and maybe want pirks such as a double bed/balcony etc., maybe Holland Hall or Pennsylvania Court might be for you. Pennsylvania Court shares a dining hall with Ransom Pickard, but we never really mingled with them socially lol.
Then there's Duryard, which is similar to Lafrowda and Birks, but I wouldn't recommend because its much further from town and the other halls, and believe me you'll appreciate less walking time when going to see friends!

In terms of facebook groups, I'd wait until you've applied for and been given your accommodation, and then find the group chat for those particular halls. Usually, there'll be a big 'Exeter Freshers 2022' type facebook group where you can ask if there's a group chat. If there isn't yet, then you can make one.

Thank you so much!!

I’ve been looking at Birks Grange Village and Lafrowda, as well as other self-catered accommodation.
That was real helpful, do you enjoy Exeter as a whole, and if you don’t mind me asking what subjects do you take?

I take physics, and yeah I really enjoy Exeter! I've found some of my closest ever friends there. If you start uni without any restrictions (Covid-related), then first year should be great. I'd recommend curly fries at The Ram (the pub/bar on campus) if you get the chance. We also have a campus cinema which is dirt cheap and shows a lot of popular releases from the year. There's lots to do and enjoy
