Hi,
Although I love living at college, I have found that I cannot cope with the noise of other students partying. I'll be going to uni next year. If you're studying zoology, natural sciences, or evolutionary biology, and are living in quiet accommodation, I'd be interested to know which uni you are at as it may be a good option for me. I'd also like to know if your uni would one for me to avoid!
Thanks

Unless an accommodation block is specifically labelled as a 'quiet' block, the noise level of blocks will vary wildly depending on the occupants each year. You always have the option of living in a smaller student house, which means there will be fewer people to make noise.

I've narrowed my uni choices down to those that have specific quiet blocks. I was thinking some may be better at enforcing that than others.
Thanks

Have a look at Swansea university. They have quiet accommodation blocks. Can allow you to live on campus for the entirety of your studies with disability office support and have a specialist autism team that are amazing at making sure you have the right things in place to make university as easy as possible. They also do an orientation so that you can get used to the university before all the students arrive. They will help you with exam arrangements too and guide you through DSA if you haven’t got that sorted before you start university. Swansea is one of the few university’s with a specialist separate autism team.

Phoenixfeather99 thanks, I've been to Swansea (the city, not the uni itself) and didn't like it - I've just looked at the uni website though, and it seems great! I'm considering it now.
