most fun west village accommodation bristol uni?

hi! I need to apply for accommodation at bristol and am wondering what people think are the best west village accommodations?

I love going out and being sociable but I want to stay around Clifton and probably want an ensuite so which west village halls would be best for that (and which should I avoid)?

Essentially i want a north village experience in a west village hall if that's possible lol!

You might not get the same experience as north village as west village is more quieter compared, but there is still lots of people who want to be social, so bare that in mind. I think the best accommodation in west village is orchard heights, its close to Cabot's Circus and the main area in general, so I presume there are clubs nearby! Other accommodation which is nice in west village is goldney house, unite house and winkworths house. You can go on there website and look for more details about there prices and pictures! Hope this helps.

Your welcome! I would say yes as orchard heights is more closer to the city centre, so I think it will be a bit more social and lively from my observations!

I may be biased because I lived there, but Manor Hall. It was incredibly sociable even during the pandemic. It's also one of the lowest-cost halls, with the biggest rooms. It has a big hall for balls, a bar (although I don't know if they have re-opened it) and a really nice garden. The downside is that you may have to share a flat with a lot of people, but that can also make for great house parties.

I heard that Manor Hall is 50/50, like not too social but social enough? Or am I wrong. Are there people that don't drink and who are more quieter because I am planning on applying there as well??

In any situation where you're living with housemates, not everyone will be the same. There will for sure be people who want to have a quieter lifestyle or maybe don't drink. The flat I was in was plenty social enough for me, but there were flats on the upper floors that had a lot more house parties. That has its own problems though, because you may have days where you want to focus on your degree, while everyone else wants to throw a loud party in the kitchen. A balance between the two is better in my opinion. Anyway, I'd be very surprised if you ended up with only quiet, non-drinker housemates in Manor Hall, but even if you do you can make friends with people from other flats who are more social.
