Hey i was also in a shared room in New hall in my first year-i was in a bunk bed room and it was tiny but luckily i was with a girl who i got on with really well,then after placing a request to move we transferred to a huge double doublebed room which was really good fun with loads of space to move and spread out in.So it all depends,but New hall is a nice hall with a friendly foyer and common room to hang out in-as it is a large hall you will meet loads of people.Im sure you will enjoy it but if you are in a small bunkbed room look into requesting for a move when a room becomes vacant.

Just survived a year in New Hole, it's big, and yes it is modern and tidy....but it seemed soul-less to me...big long daunting ccorridors.....didn't have any kind of communal atmosphere whatsoever and the large number of residents soon splits into small groups of likeminded people...can't complain about the year i had or anything in particular. the food hmmmm it is edible a lot of the time, but it isn't great, but for what you pay for the privelage you couldn't expect much more...theres always a shop and well equipped kitchens if your not satisfied letting you cook for yourself...looking forward to aa better experience in smaller hall next year.......

Surely groups of likeminded people are a good thing?

Groups of people all with the same interests aren't good for community spirit among the whole hall, but there's nothing wrong with groups of likeminded people, as long as there is a good spread of external activities among them.
