I lived in Stephenson Hall during my first year! I absolutely loved it! We were catered, so everyone from the building had the opportunity to have dinner together every night! It was the perfect occasion to meet new people and to bond with your flatmates! The food itself was not amazing, actually the same dishes tended to repeat themselves however the money loaded into your genius card could be used all around the university cafes! Amazing during exam season! Also, you could use your genius card at the Edge, pub where you could get brunch, burgers, pizzas and more!!! I was in one of the blocks, which I shared with another 9 girls, the rooms are bigger than other rooms in Endcliffe however the building was quite old. Another thing about being catered is that you do not have a living room nor a proper kitchen, however we always chilled in others rooms or at the Edge! Stephenson is beautiful during summer as it is right in front of a beautiful garden! My flat and I had a few bevs there under the sun! Regarding the social experience I think it is the best accomodation to be in, also the first year living alone can sometimes be tricky so not having to cook all the time was brilliant! We had a little kitchenette where we could have quick meals! Stephenson is slightly more expensive than other accomodations but remember it includes £50 a week in your genius card to spend on food around Uni!
