University of Nottingham Halls in Second Year

I am currently a first year student at UoN and will probably get halls again next year as most people I know have already sorted houses and I don't want to live in a house with people I don't know that well.

I was wondering if anyone could give an insight into the best halls to live in as a second year student. I was thinking to go for self-catered as it gives more of an independence, and as also I will then have flat mates so it has that house feel, and I also worry that the catered on-campus accoms are full of freshers which is kinda weird for a second year to be there to try and make friends with them.
I was also thinking to pick one of the halls on jubilee campus as they seem much nicer, although I have heard there are a lot of international students in those. I would of course want an accom where there is a decent social life and good second year students to make friends with.

Could anyone offer their insight into where might be best?

I am in the EXACT same position as you. Friends have gotten houses, I don’t want to settle for bad housemates, I want a social shared kitchen, but I want to meet second year students not freshers. I'm still thinking but most likely I will book Riverside Point because of its location in Lenton which is close to my friends' second year houses (and close to uni). Even if I do dislike my flatmates I’ll be able to visit my friends.
