Pollock Halls if you're not posh

Hi, I've been assigned a place at Turner House, which is in Pollock. ive heard it's just all cliquey "yah" tory types and I went to a state school, I'm definitely not that haha. Would I still be able to fit in or would it just be a nightmare?

I live in Glasgow so I'm not too far, could just commute if it came to it
I applied for Pollock too (won’t find out specific hall until results day) and hoping it’s not too bad

I just found out I’m in Holland house, but I’m also not “posh”. Hoping it won’t be too cliquey

Turner is very social so I’m sure you’ll be fine

Hey, I was in chancellors last year and I absolutely loved it, I don’t think it’s really like the stereotype and you’ll definitely make friends there!
