    Just thought it would be a good idea if everyone put down their accommodation . For example, house or halls? If halls, say which one.

    For me i accepted my accommodation a few days a go i'll be in Oxford Court in Manchester starting my First year in September

    Halls - they're cheaper, better maintained, usually have social activities and are full of freshers who largely want the same things you want.

    I lived in Oak House, Manchester last year but this year I've moved into a shared house nearby.

    its just in the halls i may be going into this sept in Farnham the halls are £800 more expensive than renting privately. the halls do not include facilities for washing so this is an extra cost and there is no WiFi access within the halls unless you pay extra for it. im looking for private accommodation mainly but was wondering what every one else thought. you can rent a house share with other students though. some of those students migt be in their second year so they know where the best places to hang out are and where the best activities are. just a thought

    I think for me, Halls are just an easier option especially since this will be my first year of uni
