Hello, what types of universities are there?
I mean in terms of Campus, City etc.
And what differentiates them from each other, specifically in relation to the accommodation?

Well, every university's different, but city universities eg. UCL tend to be (unsurprisingly) in the middle of a city,which is good for some things because everything's really central but bad in others because it may be more expensive and decent accommodation may be harder to find. Campus universities, on the other hand, eg Reading, are situated probably in rural areas and the buildings are purpose-built. This means all th university facilities are really close and halls are on campus. Advantages include a bit more collegiate life, disadvantages could be that you feel very insulated and can't enjoy the benefits of being walking distance from a city.
Campus universities will have adequate accommodation for all, and generally really close to lectures, and city universities will have not as much accommodation and it may be a bit of a walk.
Personally, I'm in a city university and love it - it's a bit annoying having a 30-minute cycle in the mornings but being based in a city gives you so many great opportunities (especially for creative students - I'm studying music). But again, every university is different and only you know which you'll like the most Hope I could help!
