    I will be 23 starting my masters in September.

    Opinions on halls? I feel like coming from my own flat to halls again is a bit of a downgrade and may be a bit more mature than the other 18 year olds.

    But I did private accommodation for last 3 years of my undergrad and didn't like it but had more independence.

    FYI undergrad and masters both in London.

    Is halls common for Masters students?

    I'll be doing a Masters next year, but I thought halls were mostly for first year undergrads and the odd international student?

    In response to your question, personally I'm not sure I could stand being surrounded by immature 18 year olds. But on the other hand, halls were fun... so I dunno.

    Depends on what kind of person you are and what you want out of your experience. Personally I was done with halls after my final year as an undergrad, sharing privately was tolerable (more so with people I knew than with people I didn't) but now that I live with my other half would really struggle to go back to sharing with friends or strangers.

    I'm 23 and looking at postgrad accommodation just now and from what I can see, you won't be grouped together with 18-year olds. Unis tend to have separate accommodation for postgrads who might sometimes be together with later year undergrads and even then not in the same blocks/flats etc. It probably depends on the uni though.
