I am hopefully going to be studying at Leeds uni this year but am not sure whether to live in halls or not. My GF is already studying in York and we are thinking of living in student Castle (private student accommodation for students). It'd mean travelling about 40 mins each way and wouldn't work out much more expensive.
I plan to be heavily involved with societies but can't decide whether living in halls is worth it for the first year, there's always the chance that I'll get terrible flatmates etc and I do like things to be quiet when I am studying and hate mess everywhere. I am kinda worried I'll miss out on a lot...
Are there any people here that can share their opinions for me, especially 2nd and 3rd years?
... and the ones that won't
