    The accommodation for my uni varies from £126.49 per week to £156 per week.

    The more expensive ones are gorgeous and have a lot more included, but I don't want to end up broke and unable to live.
    What's an acceptable range of prices per week for me to be looking at? My maintenance loan hasn't been confirmed yet but I'll be looking at around the maximum.
    Thanks!

    Personally i think £156 is ridiculous and wont leave you enough to comfortably live off. I'd aim for the lower end if you can and go for a nice shared bathroom one.

    Is that food included? £156 a week is very very expensive, we pay less than that combined for a 2 bed flat. Even with bills and food it's high.

    Everyone is very differnt, you will need to work it out for yourself. There's uni expenses calculators that should give you an idea, and your prospectus should give you a estimate of living expenses.

    both sound pretty high for student living to me, but I guess it depends where you are... I currently rent a 3 bed house with a garden for less than £156 a week

    there are some really nice student places, which are lovely looking, loads of space and have great amenities... but £156 a week will put you at over £6000 for the year, even on the maximum loan that will not leave you a huge amount for day to day living, you will honestly value having spare cash to go and do fun stuff, eat well, join societies, go on holiday even A LOT more than you will value having a slightly bigger floor to leave clothes all over... I would go as cheap as possible providing it doesn't mean sharing a bedroom
