    Hey guys!

    I was accepted to Coventry University and I was going through the accomodation options that the University has. I don't know how it works, once I'm from Portugal and I've never been in UK, but is it better to stay in a dorm or to look for a room somewhere else? And where should I look for it?

    I ask because, in Portugal, usually dorms are less expensive than renting a room, but it seems to be the opposite in UK.

    Btw, are the University and the city good? I've seen great references, but I thought I should ask anyway.

    Thank you,


    From what I have heard it is better to have a dorm for the first year then the second year you get your own flat/house elsewhere.
