    Yo, I've accepted my offer for Ravensbourne but I'm struggling to find accommodation, Scape and Unite seem way too expensive, especially considering the total rent is more than my entire student loan. Claredale and Cass have offered all their rooms and I'd imagine Farndale is the same but I'll still be enquiring tomorrow. McMillan student village is listed on the website too but is quite expensive too. I know that living in London is expensive and I have already got a job sorted out for when I move up there but is it worth looking into housesharing? What are my other options?

    I don't know about other options, aside from renting privately, but i'd be cool if you got into Farndale. That's where i'm staying for first year, but i'll be moving to private after that probably since Woolwich is too far away from the uni for me, i'd like to be within walking distance.

    But keep us updated man! What are you studying?
