    hey, i just got offered halls for January (i've been on the waiting list)
    Anyway, i can't decide whether to take them, it'll mean i have like no money to live on, but i'll have the uni experience! What does everyone think?
    I live about 40 mins from the uni so it'd be nice to be near, is it worth it?

    Everyone is in the same position money wise.
    Get a job to fund your social life?
    You'll also have a student loan.

    the uni experience
    Possibly one of the most misadvertised and overhyped things I've experienced in my short life.

    If you want to live with other students, have some fun times and don't mind a lot of noise and mess, then do it. But don't expect some amazing ~*~experience~*~.

    Depends too much on your character and situation for me to be able to comment, really.
