    Id suggest waiting till you start and are comfortable at uni and with your financial situation unless the commuting is too much. A lot of my cohort commuted from other cities up to 2 hours away but have moved close to uni as times gone on mostly due to commuting being too difficult but kind of gives you the idea of what you can spend.
    For others like me who moved before starting have all found we need jobs on top of bursary to cover rent - lots of people are on banks either nhs or other. Some people have gone for places that cost over their bursary income but others like me have gone for more cheap and cheerful - just lots of different things to think of if you fancy moving and a lot of students do!
