Student Houses

Due to the lack of spaces not evey student will get into hall. Living in a student house inevitably changes your first year at university, but not necessarily in a bad way. Living in a student house is a much more independent way of life. This infamous realm, 'out of hall' will not ruin your first year. For example, Fry Haldane is a society run specifically for students not living in hall. - Bristol SU

Hope some of the current students could post pictures of their halls (rooms, kitchen, dinning hall etc). It would really be beneficial for us future students esp in choosing our desired halls.. Thanks! :biggrin:

Hall websites usually have them, if there are some places that you want to see that people don't have photos of.

There are fairly accurate pics of Winkworth here (though don't believe the shower curtain). Hope that's helpful? I'm enjoying living here - don't want to leave today!

If you want to know what the halls look like from above there are high resolution photos on google earth, just type in BS9 1UB and you go straight to stoke bishop with Durdham in the middle. If that sounds too much effort look at the atached piture
I'll post some Wills ones in a bit... rooms are great!
Ok, Wills. Wonderful place, not completely full of rah's. Churchill is worse for rah's apparently (more eatonians than comprehensive school people in churchil last year!!).

There are some photos of Will's attached. I live in the old section, and have a room that is about 5m x 4m (roughly, as its rectangular), which is awesome!

Their are some newer blocks but I don't live in them so I can't comment really, but they seem alright!

Enjoy the photos... :smile:

Your rooms aren't though.

Matt - nice room! I'm liking the mat and the lamps - very smooth.

What's not pretty about the rooms? :confused:

I think my room is very pretty, especially with the fairy lights on. Will be even more so once I've replaced the curtains. Don't know about everyone else, but I quite like the fact that my furniture looks brand new. :p:

Wow, I like my room but it's rubbish compared to everyone else's on here! It is really small with a sink. That's about it really! I have really made it my own though, it's totally covered in posters and photos, I love it :smile:.
