    I have a dilemma: do I go for a room I've found within budget, nice location, otherwise fine (but without a window) or go for the university halls that are a bit on the expensive side. If I took the uni halls I'd have to find a job (I've found one) but I'd be totally under pressure to work so many hours a week all year. I'd rather have the time for socialising, studying and whatever else life brings...

    Heard that it's best to stick to the 10-12 hours work limit so if this isn't possible with the uni hall, it might not be worth it

    Athough having said that, living on halls helps in the socialising department haha

    Personally unless you wanted the quieter life then I'd reccomend halls for first year- that way if you don't get on with the people immediately around you, you have many more to go and socialise with. Also a room without a window doesn't sound brilliant to me. And consider that the private rented room is unlikely to include billls, where as a uni room will be all inclusive.
