    I recently took part in a five-day fine art course at the Slade (UCL) and completely loved it, I think Slade will probably be one of my top choices. I am also looking at other arty-ish schools in London like CSM or Goldsmiths. I live about an hour outside of London so I could commute, but my mum and a lot of people I talk to say staying in halls your first year is really important, socially. This is also important to me because I sort of struggle to make and maintain friendships lol, so staying in halls and meeting people would really help. The majority of students I spoke to at UCL said halls are way too expensive and to just commute, but commuting is also super pricey, and I don't want to live at home for my entire time at university! What can I do? Is staying in halls/living in london/ sutdying in london in general just way too expensive??

    Well try to find the cheapest and the one you like. You can maybe get a saturday job if you can. Your loan will be more as your living in london. You will have a higher chance of being lonely if you don't choose halls.
