Durdham was horrible, i think a drug dealer lived next door to me super scary! Some nights were miserable due to lack of sleep caused by my twaty flatmates who were always on the "sesh" and refusing to stop smoking weed in the kitchen.

Q
Is it as dead as everyone says, I need a second accommodation choice and I’m quite social?
By member1147440 On 20th April 20
In my experience it definitely was not dead, if you put yourself out there at the start of uni there is loads of people that want to go out and had fun. I loved my time at durdham so a good second choice

I moved to durdham halfway through the year and my experience has been a blast! It is super cosy, very nice, in the heart of Stoke Bishop which is probably the best place to spend the year. The hall has an old aspect but in a good way, and quite a bit is refurbished inside. I didn't experience much maintenance issues, and staff was super responsive when they were needed. The social aspect is certainly more limited than other halls as the flats are quite small (6 ppl) compared to Hiatt Baker with twice as more. However a nice flat will have you enjoy your time there. It is pricier than average but the rooms are ensuite and the kitchens are truly decent with everyone having their own mini fridge. For the same price you get the same type of room in the city centre but more modern, however a lot of stuff is broken there and it is much noiser.

I am currently at durdham hall and really enjoying my time here. It’s definitely not a ‘dead’ halls and there are lots of people that like going out. The flats are nice and spacious and the bar is good for playing Poole, darts and ping pong. Such a good location as stoke bishop is it’s own little student community so there’s always something going on.

I had heard all the bad reputation about Durdham before coming to Bristol but turns out a lot of us are just Hiatt Baker rejects so I didn't find it hard to make friends who like going out. Pros: en-suite, big kitchen and hall space, Stoke Bishop is like a campus if you want that kind of environment. Cons: High rent for what it's worth, the bar is usually quiet, need to get bus into uni, eduroam can be s***

Durdham has a reputation of being dead, quiet, and really rather s***. It does live up to this reputation. If you’re applying to Bristol, don’t apply to live here, unless you want to be in the worst halls that Bristol offer.

Got a bad reputation because there are certain people who don't engage with going out, however there are more than enough people if you put yourself out there to have a great time.

Very unsociable and quiet halls, hence the nickname 'deadham', 'boredham' and 'dulldham'. If someone asks what halls you are in, their reply to Durdham is normally 'oh I'm so sorry'. Having said this, if youre looking for a quiet uni experience with a guaranteed en suite it would be suitable. All the staff are very friendly and quick to deal with maintenance issues.

Pros - guaranteed en suite, big kitchen space/ living area, in Stoke Bishop with the other halls so in a great social area but not near the bus stop so not too noisy, next to the tennis courts with decent car park Cons - stereotype of being quiet, mainly due to lack of common room/ decent bar, Stoke bishop further away from uni than the city centre accommodation
