    I didn't get a place either. A bit dissapointed but I guess it will be cheaper in the long run!! My boyfriend is at portsmouth uni and he went to the housing event last year and found a nice house in a pretty central location(10 minutes walk, if that, from Guildhall) and his housemates are all really lovely.

    I'm determined to live centrally though, I really don't want to be having to get buses/trains anywhere id rather walk!!

    Living in a house first year rlly isnt that bad! i got into James Watson last year but 3 of best mates from home ended up in houses and probably loved it more than i did in halls! you get a lot more freedom and the opportunity for a hell of a lot of house parties

    Living in a house is the best thing youll do. For me, i felt isolated in halls, you dont really have any communal space, and theres so many people i never got close to anyone.
    Got a house in the second year and it was so much better. My 3 housemates are now my best mates, you still meet people, and you have your own space, living room, garden, and its about £30-40 a week cheaper.

    Your probably disappointed that your not in halls, but seriously, until youve lived in them theyre not all theyre cracked up to be.

    My brother didnt get a place in halls this year either.

    House hunting is awesome, and in my opinion it's probably more fun than being in halls.

    Woowoo for house hunting ^_^
