Didn’t have high expectations for University Hall in terms of quality but I am disappointed. I have an en suite room, it costs £170 a week so it is not cheap nor is it good value like the University Hall stereotypes proclaim. The room is outdated, dusty with random stains on the chairs and carpets. The worst part is the ‘bathroom’, or rather the wet room that turns into an indoor pool every time you shower so there’s an added bonus. The ‘shower’ (wet room) floor is completely level, I don’t which architectural genius decided this was a good idea as it means mould and grime build up very quickly and easily, and the dirt in the shower does not naturally flow towards the drain and instead spills all over the floor creating a mess. For a Stoke Bishop self catered, Hiatt Baker (which is only £2 more per week and looks like a 5* hotel in comparison) or Badock are the best options. UH non en suite isn’t much better off buts it’s like £5 a month so who cares. I’d rather be in city centre.
Mixed bag of a hall, i think you either end up loving it or hating it, for me it was more of the latter. My only real positive was the location, being in stoke bishop gave a good student bubble feel and buses were really frequent and reliable all day and night generally. However, despite being the cheapest hall, I still don't think you get a lot for the money, but this is probably a lot down to Bristol being an expensive city in general. Kitchens so small only 1 person could cook at once - never mind trying to get 5 flat mates into it. Social experience was fine, but I wouldn't say I made any friends for life. Not a lot really organised by the uni/committee besides the xmas formal which was fun. People here are more tolerable than stoke bishop as a whole - probably down to it being the cheapest hall - but still quite rah, full of themselves etc. If you're a normal person i'd stay away from stoke bishop halls altogether, as I know people down in Clifton who've had a much better time.
University Hall is the cheapest Bristol Halls, but none the less it's still relatively expensive for what you get. The flats are made up of 6 bedrooms, toilet and wet room. Incredibly basic and aging facilities. The kitchens were tiny, we could barely fit our 5 flat mates in it. The bedrooms were mouldy, they simply paint over them each year. All in all it's cheap accommodation, some people end up loving it. But it just didn't work for me.
Honestly if you're looking for the most social hall then this is it by far, most laid back ppl. Probably not for you if you're quite middle class. UH aka spoons hall is s*** accomadation utility wise but no one really is too bothered cause you're having such a good time. Bar is most popular in stoke bishop. Wills - richest / internationals Church hill - still quite rich Hiatt baker - middle class and quite tame Badock - middle class and druggy Durdham - you don't really wanna be here Town and Clifton - nah everyone in sb knows it's the place to be like 2000 students over here it's like our own campus Bus is a bit annoying but not too bad
Overall I'm happy living at UH, although the flats don't feel too secure and noise can be heard from outside and inside the hall when you're in your room (noise from the buses, doors slamming). Stoke Bishop is quite far from the uni but UH is right next to the bus stop, which is a good and bad thing.
It's pretty rubbish and over priced, but they all are.
Amazing atmosphere but tiny kitchens
Really good atmosphere, but not worth the long travel into town. Was really lucky with the people I was living with, but I know people who weren't so lucky and so had a terrible time.
Really horrifically bad facilities for the price
Great social scene! Everyone is so nice and laid back, no cliques or social pressure whatsoever! Feels like a family!
UH is the cheapest hall in Stoke Bishop, which means the accomadation is the bare minimum but it is nice. However, the other halls in the area that are a little bit more xpensive you get a lot more for your money, in space and facilities. Stoke Bishop is a great location as there are many other students but the lack of a convinient cash point and shop is irritating.
