Hull is a great city to be a student in!
I feel the need to reccomend 'The Lawns' when applying for accomodation - loads of Halls on one complex - en-suites, catered, self-catered etc. to suit everyone, but the layout of the 'blocks' is really sociable, so you get to know loads of people rather than corridors or little flats of 6 or so. Come to Hull and go to the Lawns for your first year - best year of your life I guarantee you!!
Any questions about the Uni/City feel free to ask!
