    I was wondering whether you were allowed to stay in halls for the whole duration of your course (as an UK/EU student) or not, and if it was common to do so. Thanks!

    Hiya,

    You can apply to stay in campus accommodation for the duration of your course. You can normally apply around the end of Term 1/beginning of Term 2. We do have a fair amount of students staying on campus, but there is a lot of housing in the private sector around York to choose from as well.

    Hopefully some of our students can give you some pros and cons of housing options in York but for now I hope this answers your question.

    Thanks,

    Annie

    Thank you for your answer. I was mainly wondering whether the majority of 2nd year students moved into private houses or kept living on campus.

    The vast majority move off campus, into privately rented houses, but plenty of people do stay on campus. Those who stay on campus do tend to be international students though for the most part.

    And would you say it is a positive thing to move off campus into private houses? What are the advantages of it?

    - Cheaper
    - More comfortable, you have a TV, sofas etc.
    - Nicer, York has some nice accommodation but even the nice ones feel a bit sterile
    - Not surrounded by flats of other students, quieter etc.
    - Can choose exactly who you live with

    I personally loved halls first year, but I couldn't think of anything worse than moving back into halls for second/third year. Even though my accommodation was very nice by student halls standard, it always felt a bit like you were living in a hotel, rather than a house.
