Hey guys, I need your help. This will be the first tie I´ll be living in the UK and have no idea about the cost of accomodation and how it works. I have been doing a research about it for quite a while now and am even more confused about the rent and utilities and cost of rent in general.
1.) University accomodation or private one?
I have found out that the my rent would be around 80 - 85 pounds approx. when living in the university campus(as a postraduate student)
2.) Private accomodation
I have registered in several sites and offers have started to arrive. Do you think it is possible to get a room with less than 300 pcm ( including utilities) in Newcastle? Generally the rooms cost 350pcm and I think its a bit too much. What do you think?
Do you think I can get any room for less?
But on the other hand I dont want to live in a sh*t place, so I am prepared to pay a tiny bit more, but not OVERPAY! What is the avarage rent you guys pay pcm or pw? including bills in Newcastle or around that area?
Can anyone help me please?
...Should I go back to school?
