Hi so i'm moving out to Manchester and was wondering what is the best accommodation to choose for myself. For instance, would i be better off booking an en suite provided by the uni in terms of building friendships/socialising or would it be more cost effective to find a studio/apartment elsewhere in manchester???

i've looked at both and found out a studio not provided by the university is a LOT cheaper but i also don't want to spend 3-4 years living on my own with no one to socialise with.. i'm really conflicted.

i'm also looking for a place which i will be able to afford and not stress about paying my rent weekly/monthly so any help from anyone (preferably previous students who are accommodating ) would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Have you taken into account unis are often 36/38/42 week contracts and private Halls or private contracts will be 52 weeks.

Just do a pros and cons.

I would say the unique thing uni offers is social interaction with other freshers, which may or may not work out.
Private halls is going to be more second years +. You have that extra chance of making friends that way and then moving out.
If you are confident socially then you can use societies, classmates and just general social skills.
