    I didn't live in halls for my first year and I seriously regret it, I got told by my uni's accommodation offices that I AM allowed to live there for my second and third years. However, is this rare? I'm aware that it's mainly freshers living in halls so I don't want to be like the only second year living in halls

    Anyone else who isn't a fresher and living in halls? Or knows of someone?

    I'll be going back into halls for my second year - I just like it there! I think in some unis it's more common than others. I know some people that say their uni only lets people go back into halls after first year under special circumstances, but at my uni it's almost the other way around - we're encouraged to apply.

    Hmm, we have this option for second year if you are disabled and final year for everyone. Would you like to live with lots of freshers when your work actually counts and theirs doesn't? Generally speaking.

    It depends on the uni you go to. At my uni, there is no on-campus accommodation for second years, the only time a second year can live on campus is if they have exceptional medical circumstances I think.

    One third of all hall accommodation on campus is available for returning students in Loughborough.

    I get it in what will be my second year at Warwick (but third year of a four year degree) because I'll be returning from an Erasmus year...but normally it's only Freshers (and even then, not all of them) and some finalists (only about 50% of the students that apply for it get it)/postgrads who live in halls. It's compulsory to move out for your second year.

    Compulsory to move out of halls, or to move in general? Cause I didn't live in halls for my first year but I want to for my second.

    Which uni are you at?

    Second years at Warwick are not eligible to live on campus unless they have a medical condition that prevents them living off campus, pretty much. There's a waiting list for those who want to move back onto campus for whatever reason though, I know someone who started their second year living in Leamington and then by the end of the first term/beginning of the second (can't remember) moved back onto campus, and they didn't have any medical thing.
