    The accommodation ive been given is catered which I really don't like the sound of... It's got horrible reviews as well but some people I spoke to said it's okay and that the food is decent. But the fact it's catered means there's no kitchen or social area and this is really gonna bother me. I spoke to the uni and they're all full up atm so there's not a guarantee I can room change at a later point. I'm just thinking should I be going to unu if I'm not gonna like the accommodation? Should I try ti make it work or is that a stupid idea as it's over £5000 accomodation?

    Hello,

    I considered taking a gap year which is hilarious because I was willing to skip a year because of how my room was. You will come to find that your room is meant just to sleep in and you will spend more time outside e.g. socialising, studying in the library, doing hobbies.

    I had 9am lectures...didn't return back to my place until 11pm if that wasn't a night I would be going out!

    Unfortunately, catered halls always tend to be the most expensive. It is unlikely but I would recommend contacting your accommodation services and see what they can do. Self Catered halls are great because you still have the kitchen as the communal area and can cook at stupid 'o' clock. However, at this stage everyone has their allocated room.

    But you never know...it could be a great place!! Just hope for the best!

    Yes you should go to university because its more than just your room, it's about your education and taking the next step for your future.
    If you really don't want to live in the accommodation provided then rent privately, even if it is your first year.

    Which uni? Which hall? You might get some people who've actually lived there.
