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.

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.

The best thing I got out of living in Penbryn is the friends I made with which I moved into a house the year after. You are likely to end up living with a lot of people so the chances that you find someone you like are higher. However, at the same time, this means there is a lot more noise and I literally wasn't able to sleep during my entire year due to parties held by people living above and below me. The location is perfect though if most of your classes are on the main campus. Another advantage of living in Penbryn is that you don't have to worry about cooking yourself, but a big disadvantage is that you don't really have a great kitchen if you would want to cook yourself. I wrote more on it in a blog post which includes pictures so you can see what a room looks like: http://malousfigments.com/living-university-accommodation/

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 shit 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.

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.
