    Just wondering, how much is everyone's accommodation fee? Price per week?

    ^ Is that with or without en-suite? Catered? <-- From your firm choice uni.

    I was looking at Bristol accommodation and they are quite expensive. I honestly don't know how I'll budget and would probably
    end up getting a job alongside studying.

    If I get my top choice at Manchester it'll be £90/week
    Although it's more likely to be £94
    That's standard shared bathroom self catered

    Yh bristol is expensive, I'm worried about if I end up going there too

    Just accepted my accommodation offer from Notts

    Private Shared Bathroom (one other person) and on University Park (all catered)

    It works out at £192/week.

    Did you go to Collingwood?
    Nah, St Chads. As much as i love the idea of the old cobble street and cathedral, I couldn't see why I would be paying nearly £3000 more than Nottingham...

    It's okay, you still have time! Don't rush this, you just might need to do even more research! It'll all work out :-)
    I have no lessons today, I'm probably going to spend the whole day going through absolutely everything, I hope it makes me feel better!

    Sorry to chip in on your conversation, but whilst you think £3000 is a lot more to pay, in the long run it isn't. And trust me when I say St Chad's and Durham is really worth it. Honestly, I absolutely love Chad's and when I speak to my friends at Nottingham, I know I am enjoying my university experience much more and it is definitely worth the price!

    Bristol charge £125-130/week for an ensuite room.
    Exeter charges £137/week for an ensuite room.

    I'm starting to realise student finance doesn't really cover the cost

    Yup.

    Mother is doing a PhD right now so I get the full loan + grant £7500/year. Then, I have about £5k saved up for just uni (not using my other savings) and about £4k from my part time job at Three.

    I'm thinking an extra £80-100/week would be fine (or about £2500 for the year). That'll be for nights out, books, toiletries, phone and misc. stuff.

    It's a 31 week let but I'll probably pay the extra to keep my stuff in my room over the holidays - cba hauling things between Notts and Aberdeen.
