Halls of residence

Halls are university-owned accommodation that can be either catered or self catered.

We've got some useful accommodation guides for individual universities, as well as more general University guides giving you an insight to what each university has to offer.

Popular questions when deciding to stay in Halls include "should I live at home or in uni halls?" as well as the decision between an en-suite or a shared bathroom. Click the links and read the experiences of other Student Room members.
