What’s the best place for a first year Bristol student to live. I don’t have any help from school or parents with this kind of thing so I’m a little confused.

This site is good, you can select your preferences and compare prices. I also used google maps to see how far each was from the where lectures and etc. would be.

These vids were useful too:

I have a place at Bristol uni for next year and I'm thinking about accommodation.

I've heard that Stoke Bishop is supposed to be the most sociable place for students to live but I'm wondering how sociable the city centre accommodation is? City centre would be more practical for me personally I think but I'm worried about it not being sociable, can anyone who lived there or in West Village help me out? I don't want to miss out on what the experience should be like but North is far away and expensive, so I'm not sure.

Any help would be great, thank you

Really, when it comes down to it all, ignoring places like Hillside Woodside, everywhere else is as sociable as you wish it to be. East is absolutely fine - Orchard Heights, New Bridewell, Courtrooms etc etc have many people and are usually quite loud and all. West is a little bit more chill but they still are sociable.

City centre accom is just as sociable as SB, I have lots of friends who lived there and whenever I visited it was great. I was in west village cos I didn’t like how far away Stoke bishop was from all the shops and I found it to be really sociable to! You can make wherever you want as sociable as you want really, there’s so many people in each one that there’s always something going on

Most students living in private accommodation (house and flat-shares etc) live close to the Uni - Cotham, Redland, Montpelier or Bedminster areas. Clifton is lovely but costs ££. If you are into 'alternative' and like vegan food and hippy-stuff, look at Stokes Croft.
Areas to avoid - St Pauls, St Andrews, or South Bristol.

Does anyone know if there are any of the more modern halls (like the one's in the city centre) that aren't crazy party-centred but are still sociable? I really want the uni experience and to party etc but I also want a good balance between sociable and work I prefer the mode clean/modern looking rooms

from what ive heard from students at the university is that stoke bishop (north village) is objectively seen to be the more social area but the city is just the same! anyone who lives in the city will tell you its sociable, anyone in sb will tell you sb is sociable. ig one thing to keep in mind is that most people in second year will live closer to the university, so if in first year you stay in SB - youll experience the city side the next year anyway

You’ve just asked my question! I’m going to be studying medicine and so it will be full on, but I’d also like to party when I can. I want to be in quiet but sociable halls and have heard that catered doesn’t work well with a medics timetable. Does anyone know what time meals are please?
