Ethernet SHOULD be faster than wireless but it depends on a few factors like how many people will be connected to the internet at that time as one accommodation may have more rooms than the other.
Advantage to wireless is you can move around your room, connect your phone and stuff. Wish I had wireless as I was pretty much confined to using my laptop on my desk this past year ! :L Wireless should be fast enough for most needs. Unless they're set it up badly.

How would you do this? :P and i only really need wireless to go on facebook and like browser games. Will also need to download lots of stuff like things for photoshop.
If you could go on the thread i posted, could you leave your opinion there?
Ethernet is far better if your planning to download and want reliable speed, as wi-fi can slow down if used by many devices.............and you can just get a cheap wireless router and make your own connection through it.
At my previous uni accommodation I had, along with most of them I think, only one ethernet cable, so anyone with an iPad would've been screwed unless they pay for an extra sim card on top of their phone. However, the new flat/house we're privately renting next September has no ethernet so I've had to put in a wireless thingy into my new computer in time for the start of term.
