    Im in nelson court, which is awesome! its the same layout as constable but closer to the the centre- literally 2 mins walk to lecture theatres/ lcr. its ensuite and the rooms are bigger than in the newest accommodation.

    when you apply for accommodation you apply for a type, i.e. campus standard, campus ensuite, village ensuite, so you dont apply for one particular residency. the one you apply for depends on how much you are willing to pay.

    Norfolk/ suffolk are cheaper because they are not ensuite, so depends on whether you mind sharing a bathroom or not.

    hope this helps

    Lots of them are the same..I can't remember the names of them but they're all pretty nice!
    Sorry, that wasn't very useful. Just wanted to say I've noticed you're applying to English Lit at 4 of the same places as me! I just didn't like Royal Holloway very much when I visited and put Surrey instead. Good luck, hope you get your offers soon

    Depends whether you want to share a bathroom or not?? Nelson/ constable have mainly flats of 10 (with some of 6) with a kitchen on the ground floor and rooms on the floors above. Think Norfolk/ suffolk have anywhere between 8 and 12 people sharing.

    I was in norfolk and absolutely loved it! very sociable, nice big rooms and very sociable. awesome views too!
    I had a HUGE flat, there were 14 of us which was great. I find the newer accom kinda lacks character, but that might just be me!

    I'm in Britten (the newest accomodation) and I love it. TBH everyone here is really social, just as much as our friends from Suffolk terrace and constable/nelson etc. The only thing is that they have more people in their flat than we do. Nelson is nice, the rooms are bigger than ours but they're kitchen is slightly older, they're in a good location though. Constable is a bit more out of the way but pretty much identicle to Nelson. Suffolk and Norfolk are fine once you get over having to share a bathroom. I do still prefer my halls though as they're so clean and shiny, and I love having my own bathroom. Plus it's a bit of a game of luck, you can only choose ensuite campus, ensuite village and non-ensuite. I would say avoid the Village, it's really hit and miss. A couple of people love it, but the majority I've met live with antisocial people and hate the journey to and from campus.

    I'm interested in campus en-suite rooms, preferably something close to the centre of the uni, and nice and socialable.

    Could anyone recommend me anything?

    you don't get a choice - you just ask for 'campus en-suite' and end up where you end up

    yep, have a look at the UEA accommodation link i posted further up
    what they ask you to do is rank the groups of accommodation you want so
    'village en-suite'
    'campus en-suite'
    'standard campus'
    'standard city centre'
    etc

    you do usually get your first choice of type of accomm, but yeah, no choice over which block you're in

    all of the en-suite are pretty similar then. Loads are identical. is it constable and nelson then pastone and britten as identical pairs?!
    anyway, they're all very central apart from constable, which isn't exactly a trek... x

    Sociability is dependent on flatmates, not the residence itself - there isn't an area which is classically more sociable than the other really.

    Although Norfolk Terrace is clearly the place to be

    It's suffolk lol. Nah it's fairly random, I only know one person who got their first choice.

    Britten, Paston, Colman are all almost identical and very good [ensuite]. Constable is also similar but a bit older I think. I've heard Nelson is good too. They're the ensuite you'd be likely to get I think. Norfolk and Suffolk are fine, they are always ridiculously hot though, but there's no problems with bathrooms or toilets. Hope that helps.

    Which accommodation would you lot say was the quietist? I really can't do with nighttime noise in excess. Reading above I see Village looks a bit quieter but anyone know a specific block (so I can request it due to medical reasons...) Cheers
