St Andrews University HallsWatch
I am thinking of accepting my offer to St Andrews University this year. If I do, I will have to apply for halls.
I am thinking of choosing self-catered accomodation, as I am quite a picky eater, and I think that self-catered will be more like the 'real world', where I have to set aside a budget for food and clean up after myself. However, some people suggest I should pick catered, as it means all food will be prepared for me, and I can focus on getting used to university life without the stress of managing my money.
Also, I wanted to choose en suite as I have OCD and get quite fussed about hygiene, and I don't know how I would cope in shared bathrooms XD But is en suite worth the extra money? Or should I go for standard?
Finally, what accomodation looks the nicest? I notice that catered accomodation seems to have the nicest exterior and common rooms, but self-catered have nicer bedrooms.
In short, please help me decide between self-catered or catered, and en suite or standard, and tell me which options have bette looking halls please!
