    Hi Guys,

    Really sorry if this has been posted about before. I'm an international student arriving at Durham this year to do my MSc in Palaeopathology and have been trying to work out accommodation.

    I was looking at the private halls like Village at the Viaduct and Elvet Studios and was hoping to hear about anyone's experiences there or if they can recommend anywhere else?

    Thanks so much for any responses - It's so difficult choosing somewhere to live when I'm literally from across the globe.

    Thanks again

    Personally, I'd recommend spareroom.co.uk for a student house. Some of them have as many as 9 bedrooms if you're looking to live with a lot of people.

    Thanks for the link. Im honestly just trying to find a good place to live that I guess I won't have hassles with being an international student.

    Always a warm welcome

    Are you still looking for a room to rent?
    If so take a look at this house, I went to see it last week as doing my MA at Durham but I have a car and there is nowhere to park so I had to decline.
    Its just had a major refurbishment. Its going really cheap for the first year as well to get students in as refurb took a bit longer than expected. I met the landlady and she is lovely, very helpful.
