Hey...basically, I'm trying to decide on my firm choice for uni starting in September. I currently live in Newcastle, and have offers from there and Glasgow to do medicine...and can't decide which to go to. Newcastle's course is better, but i'd really like to move out, and am unlikely to get a place in hols, until way later in the year...by which time I think it could be a bit late to meet people properly.
So Im considering (expensive as i know it could be, i'm going to need to work out a way to sort it) looking into getting a shared flat, privately, nearer to the uni than my house is now, in first year. I was just wondering if anyone had done this, or knew anyone who had...how much of a disadvantage is it to not be living in halls as a fresher? Does anyone know if uni accommodation services would help sort this out? Thanks a lot for any advice you can give me

Personally I wouldn't reccommend it, I lived in a privately rented in first year and I felt that I missed out.
