    I'm thinking about staying in halls next year but I'm staying at home for my first year just now, anyway, I was wondering if a lot of 2nd years still lived in halls or are they more likely to get flats with people they meet in their 1st year?

    I'm still thinking about the idea of halls. I'm not sure I like the idea of it :p: It definitely has its advantages and disadvantages.

    You can't go back into halls at my university in your 2nd year unless you're an international student or you have a disability. You have to move out into private housing if neither of those things apply to you.

    to answer the title question, no, not many, because the university need the halls, unsurprisingly, to house the first years. there are bound to be a few 'returners' though. :cute:

    I'm pretty sure most universities don't let second years live in halls without good reason.

    Most second years in halls are those who failed to find friends to live with in their first year.

    A 3rd of hall spaces at Loughborough are given to returners - a mix of committee, finalists returning from placement and those who just love halls.


    I'd say go for it, I'm in halls the first time for my final year and loving it =D

    At my uni, Northumbria, they hardly have enough space for the 1st years. I was initially refused Halls, as I live about 20 miles away, which they said was close enough. They didn't account for the fact that where I live is a crappy little village with appalling transport links. Got it eventually though after sending a few letters.

    I'd not have wanted to live in halls this year though. I didn't like most of my flatmates, and the only one I particularly liked was really quiet and kept to herself.

    How likely is it they'd have accomodation for insurance people? Ones that lives ages away
