    This has been on my mind for the best part of 2 months and im still no closer to a decision.

    Bit of background: I'm 22, left home @ 19 got my own place. Now in a house share and starting uni in September.

    Do i go into halls or stay put?

    Pros and Cons of both,

    Here:Pros- Cheap, Quiet, Comfortable, Would be good for studying
    Cons- Not living with students, is 2 miles from campus, can be boring

    Halls: Pros- Living with students, right by campus, parties
    Cons - Living with students, bit more expensive (£25pw more)


    Any words of advice/wisdom are greatly welcomed , hopefully ill have made a decision before the weekend is over!

    I would go for halls, if you think that you can afford it. It's only for a year, right? If you need quietness then you can always go to the library/silent study rooms. It's really your decision though, that's just what I would do.

    i am leaning towards halls at the minute, especially since i found some which are really nice, im usually good at making decisions but this one is just to close to chose from.

    It might all come down to the flip of a coin!
