My accomodation costs around £80 per week, so that would work out at around £2400 for the year. That only covers full term though, so you have to pay for additional weeks you stay, and there is no ensuite. Hence I am definitely looking forward to living out next year and saving myself a packet.

Last year I paid £80 a week for 31 weeks a year (so around £2500)- it was ok, but it was old, the rooms were small and there was 1 shower for 16 people (LSE Rosebery hall). This year I'm paying just over £100 a week for 40 weeks a year (so around £4000) for a brand new ensuite room further out- it's a much better deal in my opinion, as the rooms are almost twice the size and there is a proper kitchen and stuff.

Durham is £3000.

Quite good as you get all yuor meals but it's that charge wherever you are, single or shared, en suite or not....
I think it's alright though.... plus the fact that everywhere is so near.

And they pay for the electricty and such.

Mine was only £43 a week, - not sure what that works out at for the year. Cheap and cheerful, but I loved it!

Wow, looking at some of the prices flying around here, I'm quite horrified! Mine was £660 a term, so £1980 for the year, for an en-suite set. On top of that there was £86 a term Kitchen fixed charge, and any food on top of that, but I reckon I never spent more than £70 in the canteen and maybe a little more than that at Sainsbury's. Not bad going

Next year's will be cheaper (£583 a term) but further out, smaller and no en-suite.

i paid £2490 for a room which was 3m by 5m and had an ensuite bathroom with daily maid service, this was at warwick and was imho somewhat of a bargain. Was self catering though

My mortgage costs me £70 a week - including house insurance and life insurance and a bunch of other insurance but not including bills (another £5 a week for electricity, £9 for council tax and £5.50 for internet).
£70/week? Are you paying interest only or repayments?

How much deposit?

Are you living in a shack or something?

Sorry for all the questions.

some quick calculations (we pay 'battels' rather than just accomodation) - at ~£11 a night i will have paid £2079 this year. no other fixed kitchen/utility charges etc.

this year that got me a pretty decent sized room with sink.

& next year i have a set, whoo hoo! (could have had an en suite, but the idea of more room appealed more, & sharing a shower with 2 other people isn't that much of a hardship)

cost should be fairly similar, may be a slight rise year to year, but we all pay the same for accomodation.

am looking forward to a palatial 3rd year room!

Mine was about £80 a week, which I think is fairly decent. Though rents are going up pretty much university wide next year, good thing I'm getting out.
