Hi there

You will find a mix of 'party-going' and 'I'd rather chill in bed' people in all colleges so whichever side you belong to, you don't need to worry as you can find them in whichever college you go to :smile:

Hey, St Johns is great. It's a small college, can seem a little "cliquey" as they quite often keep to themselves, but I have a lot of friends in the college and they're all absolutely lovely. I would say its on the quieter side of the university, but there's a wide range of people. I actually had my best night out pre-ing in a shared room at Johns last year (the rooms are also gorgeous).

Hey! My brother went there and it’s not true - I think some religious people are attracted to it but by no means are most people there religious. It’s like if you’re Christian you’ll probably be at johns as opposed to if you’re at johns you’re probably Christian if ygm

Thank you! I put Johns down as my first choice regardless but was hesitant because I didn't entirely know how religious it would be. I still wanted there to be a good social scene so this is very reassuring thank you! Do you know what the accomodation was like/did he have to share a room? And if so how did he find it?

He was actually super lucky with his accom - he got a single room with a double bed. Shared bathrooms.

Oh that's really good! I'm slightly apprehensive about possibly sharing a room, do you know if anyone had serious difficulties sharing? thank you so much for answering my questions x

I’m unsure, but I don’t think so. I myself have been allocated to chads and a lot of them have said they love sharing a room but I guess it depends on the person
