there are already plenty of threads about accommodation in general but I feel they are more addressing undergraduate students than postgraduates.
I will start my master's at Imperial College this fall and I'm currently thinking about how to deal with accommodation.
I do have a budget (around 160pw max) and now I'm wondering what's best: Living close to college or commuting every day to save money?!
Of course, if money allows, I would prefer living close to Imperial and it would be great if it is in walking (or biking) distance. Otherwise I will move outside of London ... Are there any good areas (especially for students) that are outside of London and nice to stay at? Maybe there are some students here that have already dealt with that question.
Also I'm wondering, is it worth saving some money by living outside of the city but then having to commute every day? It's probably quite frustrating to commute for an hour each morning/evening, right?!
Thanks for any answers!
What's your story?
