Moving into your university accommodation can be an exciting, nervous and new experience.

Got a question?
If you have any questions about accommodation, you can ask them in our general Student Accommodation forum, or alternatively in one of our specific University forums.
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.

Private managed accommodation

Private managed accommodation is purpose-built student accommodation found in many university locations across the UK, and offers a great alternative to halls and private housing. Room prices typically include all your bills, contents insurance and internet access, making it easy to manage your finances.

It's worth checking out what you need to know to find your student house. You may also want to take a look at TSR's accommodation classifieds forum, where members are advertising their spare rooms.
