    OK so what is better out of network or southwell hall? Network is much bigger but is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    Also opinions on the self catered accommodation next to jubilee: Raleigh Park / Riverside / Manor Village/ St. Peter's Court / Cotton Mill??

    one more thing, I now it's probably right in front of me but I can't find rent information for halls on the nottingham website, anyone help?

    Do you mean Newark? St. Peters court is good, Raleigh Park is rubbish (Looks good on the outside but rubbish on the inside)!!! but that's my own opinion!

    I really wouldn't reccommend Raleigh. St. Peter's Court is a bit better, if not very conveniently located.

    I spent my first year in Raleigh, the people aren't too bad, although I met some of the weirdest people I will ever meet in my life in the place but it's just the actual place, dirty, damp etc and i've heard it's not changed this year.

    I'd also look into Opal Accomodation, literally opposite Raleigh Park.It's going to be built brand new for September. Flatscreen TV's, Gym, New accom... seems like a good option.

    Opal looks like an amazing place to live in! Yes avoid Raleigh Park at all costs!!! but that's my own opinion. To me it's expensive, and its not very nice looking, whereas with Opal everything is gonna be brand new and modern...

    It's right opposite raleigh park as others have mentioned.. it is currently still under construction but i believe the showroom is currently open for viewing..

    it is roughtly 8 minutes from jubilee campus... i would so love to live there but unfortunately i'm graduating this year (my own opinion).

    It works out at something like £94 /week. That's cheap for uni accommidation isn't it? Though I'm comparing it with London uni accomodation..

    I hope people aren't bad mouthing raleigh because they want to go there :laugh:... whereever I look on the internet there is a complete divide - dome people say it's really good and others crap. Just preferences or is there something else that is causing this??

    I think I'm going to apply for st peters and the two ones on jubilee campus that are for UGs (but catered )

    st peters is run by unite however :rolleyes:
