    in that case I would take the halls self catering - you'll save money and it's better to cook for yourself
    It's only £20 less. Can you really get all meals 7 days a week for £20 in central London?

    it's a £65 difference between catering and self catering - it's easy to feed one person for around £20/25 a week unless youre eating out or takeaways all the time. food prices don't differ in major supermarkets

    ah okay that makes more sense, then it that sense yeah go for catering - it'll be cooked for you too. however you'll have to see if you get 3 meals a day or 2 because most are 2

    This is for UCL halls of residence
    It's not at all bad, for London.
    The upside here is that it includes the food and you probably won't have to pay all 12 months (I suppose).

    Yeah it's only 40 weeks. I think this is the best option for convenience. Although, Lillian Penson House is £50 cheaper (catered) but not as 'appointed' or as close to UCL

    For 65 pound having all your meals included is worth it.

    Completely takes away the hassle of shopping and cooking food.

    Worth the extra cost imo
