    My uni halls website says that the further distance you are, you are likely to get priority.

    Well, by that logic, UK students are too close. :confused:

    I dunno about accomadation owned by unis but the private halls I chose gave international students first choice of the room. However I don't think this was due to further distance I have a feeling that it was because international students have to pay in full and not in installments like uk citizens can.

    Some UK students will be too close yes, but not all. There won't be enough international students to take all the places in halls.
