I have had such an amazing time living in halls. It is a great chance to meet and get to know new people from other courses that truly become friends. There is such a buzz around the University and living in halls means you don't miss a moment of this.”

St Mary's is a small and friendly environment, and the people along your corridor soon become like your very own University family. We have had so much fun, however there is always that time to just chill in your room with your friends.”

There is a laid back atmosphere with a real sense of community when you see everyone eating dinner together in the ref. Meals are all included, so the student life is made easy. Everything is on hand and living in halls means you are close to all lectures and resources. It also gives you the opportunity to get involved in other activities outside of your course.”
