    I think uni halls in the first year allows you to adapt better to living on your own and allows you to really experience the 'student life' as you're surrounded by people all in their first year and in the same boat as you. However, private rented house sharing can be cheaper depending on the area you are renting from, however going into a house share in your first year may be daunting as you will have to organise living with people you have never met yet.
    Anything in or around London will be expensive, e.g. Surrey etc. and generally large cities are more expensive than smaller town universities, or ones situated towards more country areas. Usually the further north you go the cheaper it gets, but again it's dependent on the scale of the city/town you live in.
