Hi everyone,

I am in the process of choosing my accommodation for first year at Warwick and I am looking for some help with choosing halls.

I am slightly introverted but am still hoping for a good social experience, going out drinking or doing social activities with friends several times a week. I also want some quiet time to myself to relax or study so don't want to be with people who are too loud.

Somewhere like Rootes will probably be too loud for me whereas a place like Bluebell apparently is quite dead socially so I'm looking for somewhere a bit in the middle.

I was thinking of my top 4 being AV, Lakeside, Claycroft and Sherbourne although I'm not sure of the order yet.

Does anyone have any recommendations for what would be good for me?

Also, if I say yes to being put with students who want to be in a quiet area will that mean I will be with people who don't socialise? Cause I would like a quieter area for studying and relaxing but I also do want to make new friends and have fun socially.

Thanks

Hiya,

I stayed in Claycroft this year and I loved it I think its worth the money, sharing a bathroom with 1 other person basically works as your own en suite as I never had any problems with my bathroom mate. I would say socially claycroft is a bit in between, I was put with very social people but there is a range really, and because the halls are hallway type where you can walk in between flats youre not restrained to your flat only and can meet loads of different people. Sure we had a few parties here and there but it definitely did not get as rowdy as rootes, and a big plus side youre so close to tesco, it might not seem like a big deal now but when you get there god is it nice to have shops right next to you because you can always run and grab something
