    I am renting for the first time and have come across a studio apartment where I don't have to share anything, everything is furnished and the bills are included in the rent. I make enough money to cover the rent but I'm worried about my income when I go to uni in September. I will try to find a job but does the rent seem too expensive for a uni student?

    No the price actually seems reasonable, from what I've seen some are about £200 pcm! What area is this in?

    It's in Leeds and right next door to my uni so travelling wouldn't be too bad. It's a perfect flat essentially but I think I'm over-worrying about what my income will look like once I start uni as I will have to leave my current job

    That is quite a decent price, can you not get a maintenance loan?

    I could! I think I'm just over-worrying. I found another place for £338 but it doesn't include council tax or wi-fi and its near city centre. I think I'm just an indecisive person

    I think the one you found before is better because it includes everything

    I don't think students have to pay council tax anyway.

    Having bills included is definitely a plus and you won't have to deal with other people's mess either. Sounds like good flat really, but do you think you will get a bit lonely by yourself?

    I'm going to have a look at them both today so we shall see what I opt for.

    I'm those types of people who prefers living alone, I get too irritable

    You're exempt from council tax anyway.

    The flat near the uni was quite cramped, the bed was literally in the kitchen where the other one had separate rooms for the kitchen and bathroom and was spacious enough so I think I'll take that one

    depends how much student finance you get how well you budget. I assume you've gone for the £338 if I've read correctly which should be much more affordable as long as you are getting more than the minimum maintenance loan. You wouldn't have to pay council tax from the day your course starts.

    I don't have to pay council tax right now either since I'm in full time education but I think there will be 2 months where I will have to which is annoying :/ but I've applied for the less expensive one and hope they accept it
