    Hello, my name is Andrew Devine and i will hopefully be attending Leeds Beckett next year and will be my first time moving away from home. I am going over there on my own so I was just wondering would it be really strange for a 3rd year to be living in halls?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Hey! I wished I could help but currently in a similar situation!

    Studying my degree at a college, but now wishing I went to a uni, so hopefully going to study at the uni their in partnership with next year! I know I'll be in my 2nd year but would like some advice too, so instead of making a new thread, this will hopefully push this one up!

    Wouldn't want to be the only 2nd / 3rd year in halls, eh?

    Seems a lot of people are interested...

    Regardless, lots of people telling me not too worry and just be sound. Being an ass will get you nowhere.

    Hope they like house music whoever I am living with!!

    Hi

    We run halls across the UK (unfortunately none in Leeds yet) and we have a large number of 3rd years (and 2nd years) live with us. Its quite common, for students to come back to halls after moving into a house in second year. Many internationals live in halls for their whole degree, and some UK students do the same, for many different reasons. Students doing Masters or PhDs also often live in halls accommodation, rather than a house.
    I personally lived in Halls in my 1st year, did a house in my second and then moved back into halls for my 3rd year as I wanted to focus more on my studying and not have to worry about bills and other stuff. I would look at private halls (make sure they are accredited by the university or unipol), and can almost 100% guarantee you will not be the only 2nd and 3rd years living there.

    I hope this helps, feel free to ask us any questions.
