    I'm just wondering what the main difference is and whether one is more prefferable.

    money normally :p:

    i find that private halls have all these extra cost of stuff, say internet sign up fee, or a fee for gas and electric, and you can only use so much each month, and that fact you are dealing with a private company that well in some people cases won't listen to you, or sort anything out if it goes wrong, uni hall you tell them and within 24-48 hours something is happening

    uni halls normally one cost that that it, uni halls are more preferable, cheaper and more fun to live in

    private halls -> halls run by companies such as Unite, more locations and can be more expensive than uni's

    managed halls -> managed by uni

    (there's also managed houses, which are shared houses managed by the uni)
