I am currently studying in Hartlepool (part of Teeside University there is nooooothing there and no halls or accommodation), I want to stay living in Sunderland, but I'm leaving home, I was going to try and get a flat share or my own place but would really like to stay in private halls. Sunderland is a twenty minute train journey to Hartlepool.
Could I do this? I've been to view halls that I like, but was shown around by the care taker who didn't know about this side of things, so I don't even know if I am aloud to stay in these halls. I'm ready to put a deposit down but I'm worried I'm going to feel isolated or left out when every one is doing, erm, Sunderland uni stuff and I won't be?
Also has anyone here lived or planning to move in The West Lodge / Refectory Lodge, Tunstall Road, Sunderland?
Thank you for any help!
Is it worth the hype?
