Self-catered vs. catered accommodation Watch
More about Loughborough University
It's really a balance of costs, how willing you are to cook decent meals, having full control of your diet, how social you're willing to be in your hall (dining halls tend to be more sociable than common rooms) and time management.
I went for self-catered (Harry French) and don't regret it one bit. It was a great way to introduce myself to the possibilities there are with cooking for myself.
However if you are good at budgeting it is a lot cheaper to save money in self-catered. On of my friends in Bakewell has only spent about £200 since September on food, just by buying things like pasta, rice and noodles in bulk. His flat all chip in and get huge bags of stuff like that.
I will also add, Cayley is near the PO, Papa Si's and close to the union, so it's a super good location! :-))
