    Well its up to you, does the uni guarantee accommodation for students coming back, as most give the first priority to first years. Just in case, I think you should apply for both in case one doesnt work out. Also think in regards to costs, if you can get shared that is cheaper than uni, then its probably good as its doesnt increase your living costs. If you do go for shared, be sure to check that its legit and safe, maybe you can ask the uni to check for you?

    Watch out for hidden costs and dodgy landlords, do you drive? Will travelling to uni be an issue? And the safety aspect is also something to consider!
