    Houses > Halls

    But from what I've heard, self-catered pretty much wins.

    Halls for first year for sure, then obviously shared housing for the next few years. Don't miss that chance. Go self-catered, and aim to get into Guildhalls, as they're right in the centre of town, all the uni buildings are minutes away, shops and major going out venues too.
    In Year 2 you will be much busier so less time for going out so won't matter when big clubs and places are too far away to walk.
