Im hopefully going to university in a couple years time. I dont know anything about what form of accommodation is best for while at uni.
Is renting a 1 bedroom flat cheapest and ok for a social life? I don't know a thing about student halls or student shared houses but would like to know. I am open to any option for accommodation but would like to make an informed decision.
Please can you list for me the pros and cons of each type of accommodation, and any recommendations?

Rent a 1 bed flat if you want to have 0 friends, go into halls like the overwhelming majority of people in your position if you want to make friends. You’re welcome.

Yeah I agree with the person above....you’ll meet a lot of people in student halls so if you want to fully immerse yourself in the university experience I’d definitely recommend university halls! Living in a one person flat would be very lonely as a fresher...

Hey ChloeSky!

I'd recommend living in student halls - this is where most first years at uni live and its a great way to make friends
In halls you can either have an en-suite or share a bathroom with others (sharing is often cheaper)
Halls are also usually in a great location, close to the university so you won't have to travel far to get into uni!

Most people then choose to live in a student house with friends for second and third year as this is cheaper than halls

I hope this helps!
