    In Oxford about half of all second years live out (in privately rented accomodation). This is due to the fact that there is a hell of a lot of decently-priced student accomodation in Oxford, so it hasn't been such a pressing issue to build as much accomodation as in Cambridge. I'm going to be living out next year and I'm really looking forward to it, as it's going to be a) cheaper an b) me and my stuff won't be kicked out at the end of term.

    Well, the palatial suites after that more than make up for it. Besides, it isnt all that bad. The rooms are spacious enough, and atleast you dont have to share the bathroom with 17 other people. And its alot better than some of the first year accommodation at other colleges.

    True the accomodation does get nicer - there are about 20 obscenely palatial suites and loads of some smaller ensuites for people who get lucky on the third year ballot. The first year rooms are a good size, and, ummmmm, functional. Bathroom and kitchen shared between about 9.

    Don't know much about other colleges' first year accomodation. I have a view of Queen's first year block from my window...I have no idea what it's like inside, but it is the oddest shaped building I have ever seen.
