I'm coming from England. Doesn't quite count as international (yet?).
Yeah I can see why catered is nice, I imagine it's more of a community feeling which would be fun. But I can't really afford it, and I like cooking for myself anyway. All the accommodation looks really decent though, so I wouldn't mind living in Uni Hall or similar, but self-catered would just suit me a bit better I think. I'll try and meet lots of people in other ways.
