    Hey,

    I was wondering does anybody have any ideas which is the best accommodation in huddersfield for 1st years? And would anyone be able to explain how the rent is paid, is it paid in instalments? And can your student loan and grant cover this?

    Me too. I want something close to the campus so I can get there easily but not too expensive, though I've heard student accommodation is quite cheap in Huddersfield.

    Same here, but I've heard the ones the university approves on (such as Ashenhurst and Stothes Hall) are not that great👎

    Why? What's wrong with them?
    I looked at them on the website and they seem decent enough.

    I've been looking on the Internet and the accommodation that UNITE provide is quite good. It is a bit more expensive that the university approved ones but looks much better. Don't actually know where it is located but seems decent enough to me.

    I really like the one at the Castings and Saw Mill, but before I make my final decision, I need to send my Student Finance application off to ensure if I could afford the 'better' accommodation haha!

    I'm still waiting for them to send me a offer. They said on the interview day that I will get a email soon if they want me. It's been 2 weeks :-(

    When I went to my interview, they said you would here something the following Monday. However, I didn't here anything until 3 weeks after. So don't worry, I'm sure you will get in!😃

    I'm not that enthusiastic for Salford University as I am for Huddersfield. So I hope I get in!

    Don't blame you, I am in agreement! It's not just that, you are kind of cut off from the social life and shopping etc that comes being close to town. I have never looked to see what accommodation comes with Huddersfield Uni, but I do know Storthes Hall which many years ago was an asylum/mental health hospital and not very nice. Of course I think it has all been knocked down and rebuilt now, but still too far out.

    There are are some seriously nice apartments to rent to students in town but I think they are too expensive, certainly my minimum loan wouldn't cover them!

    A friend of mine lived in Storthes for a year but moved out into private accom for his second year.

    He used a site called sturents but accommodation for students are good too.

    Might be useful if you're looking outside halls?
