    Hi,

    I've been offered a spot at international hall, but I also have the opportunity to switch over to Hughes Parry. Do you guys have any idea if one is more social than the other? Quality of the facility doesn't really concern me; I just want to live somewhere where people actually get out of their dorm rooms.

    I don't think you'll have a big problem with people being unsociable in intercollegiate halls. The issues are more finding people from your university/higher number of foreign students (which may cause a slight language barrier). Most students in IC halls (the garden halls) will be UCL/King's, with some from SOAS and LSE. Which university are you off to?

    Hughes Parry is supposed to be very social (or so I've heard). I was also told it's got a greater number of domestic, British students which may be what you want. I don't think you should have great worries about the social life there though!

    Thanks for the response. I'm actually an international student myself, but I'm from an English-speaking country so it's no problem there. And yeah, one of my big concerns is dealing with that language barrier. I'm going to KCL, so it's good to hear that there's a lot of us in the IC halls.

    No problem. Yeah, seriously I wouldn't worry about problems with the social life. King's and UCL start around the same time as well, so you'll have a varied group of friends. King's is supposedly the 'party uni' of the big London ones, so you'll have a blast.
