    I found much cheaper, tbh. Like you only pay for accommodation in the 27 weeks or so you're there (about £2700 for me but its college dependent), hall food is cheap and good, and the financial support seem very generous for those who qualify for it.

    I don't know about living out though, for those at colleges who don't have 3 or 4 years accom'.

    Is eating in all the time cheaper than cooking then?
    I don't know why I just always thought it would be more expensive just coz of buying big bags of pasta etc?

    Generally speaking cooking would still be cheaper yes. I just cba with cooking and i'd imagine nutritionally i'd get a better variety in hall plus its a social occasion anyway.

    yer I would imagine thats one of the highlights of "the typical Oxford" day
    are there facilities to cook in halls?

    Depends on college. I think all colleges have at least some provision, although we are among the worst i'd imagine (a communal kitchen for everyone and a few more in some of the houses but not all by any means and generally people sacrifice access to kitchen for a better room/set of rooms. However, we get cheap rents and better rooms, from what i've seen, hence why i didn't mind). If its important to you then look into facilities at each college.
