    I rented privately when I went to college, and it worked out perfectly. Made friends from all over town, and I was perfectly able to go partying. However, I also had the option of getting some proper privacy and staying in without being surrounded by other students, if I so wanted.

    I am in student halls on campus but I have friends who are off campus in first year

    Being on campus for the first year is EXTREMELY helpful.

    It helps you make friends, it helps you study, it helps you party

    And everything is just easier

    I'm a 4th year but I live in private halls. It's a good way of making friends and there will be parties, although I'd say not as many as in uni owned halls, as international students tend to go into private halls, and they tend to go out out less from my experience.

    I'd recommend going into uni owned halls for first year then maybe move into private halls for the years afterwards

    Depends if they're going to a campus or city uni. I'm at Sheffield, a city uni, so there's no such thing as 'on campus' accommodation, as there is no campus

    If you like to party you'd probably want to surround yourself with other freshers who will be more likely to live in uni halls in first year. Private halls tend to attract international students & 2nd/3rd years who are more likely to want a bit of peace and quiet.

    if you make friends easily you'll probably be okay but it is much easier to meet people, especially if you're into the partying scene, on campus
