“ If your halls aren't included here please suggest them. „
As a first year student, I followed the crowd, and ended up in the Halls of Residence, paying £180 a month, without food! Admittedly, I ended up in the nice new Halls, beautifully built, nice and clean etc, but some people were not so lucky, ending up sharing a room with a stranger (who they either loved or loathed) or in one of the high rise "Flats" - if they were really unlucky they ended up in the high rise flats sharing a room with someone they hated! The lifestyle surrounding the Halls was basically what you made it - it was also pretty tough if you weren't into drinking or clubbing, as most of the designated money for each halls, for nights out, or in as the case may be, ended up being spent on making buses cheaper to Kellys or such things. And then there was the Thursday mornings walking down the Malone Road, dodging mysterious piles of hmmm whatever, to get to class... delightful! If you were lucky enough to be in Livingstone, they spent the money on a big barbeque, which I felt was more inclusive of everyone there. Basically, QUB halls is great, if you either manage to get into the new halls, or don't mind living in a mingy old place! and like to go clubbing... otherwise... live at home, or rent a house with yer mates!
