I’ve had offers from two universities so far, Durham and Newcastle. Even though Durham is the better choice I like the impression of Newcastle better.

I haven’t even decided if I’m going to move away yet, but if I do what type of halls is best to stay in, a university run halls or an private/independent one. With the independent one it will be a mix with other students from a university right next door. Will this make a difference do you think or will it be best to go for a university ran halls? Which will offer the best experience or will it be the same?

Independent may be mixed
Which is best depends on what you want.
Uni managed ones will usually be closer to or on campus depending on if it’s a city uni or not
But private halls are often more modern

Private probably will have people from both universities, in my university the private halls were mainly international students or people on clearing however you still make friends with people in uni halls so that doesn't matter. Whilst the private halls can sometimes be newer they are often more expensive and have smaller rooms than university halls.

I had a few friends who lived in the Unite halls in town and their rooms were about 60% of the size of mine and were £15pw more expensive and they still had to pay for the bus to get to campus or face a 25minute walk. Both places will have en suites which are used in this comparison.
