    There's actually not much difference if you research them, in fact some of them are cheaper. Just make sure you book one that is near the uni and mainly aimed at first year students. I'm in the same position as you still trying to find the best one😊

    Victoria Halls is good. There is also trinity square, the glasshouse, IQ etc... make sure you check payment dates with IQ though as last time I spoke I believe you have to pay your first installment of rent before student loan is due, the others will allow you to pay when you get your loan.

    Iv just booked into a brand new building Talbot Point think its aimed at first years, coz you can share apartments, helps to share the cost.:banana: Don't know anyone else who is going there tho yet! So if anyone else decides to go there let me know, love to have someone to look out for when i got there!!
