I want to go catered but I don't know if it will be worth it. I'm going to Loughborough too

if anyone can recommend which hall to choose I would be very grateful. what is the personality of each hall.

I can't comment on Loughborough specifically but I can offer my opinion on catered vs. self-catered.

When applying for accommodation for my uni, I initially applied for catered halls. I didn't know how to cook and didn't want the hassle of sorting out meals. I didn't manage to get a place and was offered self-catered halls instead. This turned out to be the better option after all - I managed to learn a little cooking (Google was my friend!) and self-catered accommodation is cheaper overall. The rent was cheaper and cooking from scratch saved a lot of money. It can be a good idea to batch cook and freeze meals to reheat later or use leftovers for other meals to save time alongside your studies and socialising.
