    If I get my chosen accommodation it will be £81.90 a week, self catered bathroom shared with 1 person or £100.70 for an en-suite room also self catered.
    Those are both at my first choice uni don't know which one accommodation a have received yet though, or if i even made my first choice.
    All I know is that uni accommodation is ******* expensive.

    I think ours is £60 a week, if I get into the one I want. It has quite the reputation as the social hub, but also as one big ball of filth. Self-catered, shared bathrooms.

    So I'm guessing campus is the area surrounding or within the area of the university then ?.

    Aberdeen is notorious for accommodation prices. Private rent rivals London.

    To be fair, I'm catered, with an en suite, living in an area of old stone buildings and wide open lawns, right opposite a fantastic ancient chapel and what not. A stunning area that's bang in the middle of the uni- worth the £trillions The room itself is biiiiiiiiig...

    I paid £3200 for my halls last year, although apparently the fee that they're going to charge for students this year is £4000.

    Luckly, I'm moving into a house with two friends in September, which will cost me £2800 for the whole year.

    Not all universities are campus based. When they are, that means that everything to do with the university - halls of residence, subject departments, shops and so forth - is together on one bit of land. Like a separate town, just for the university (although a lot smaller, obviously!) Examples are Lancaster, York and Royal Holloway.

    Non campus based universities are spread about over the town/city they're in, eg. KCL.

    Mine this year will be £102 a week for an extra-large superior en-suite room in Lancaster..
    The normal sized en-suite room is £97 so I figured I might as well pay the extra £200 and have much more room

    My loan only just covers my accommodation, and I've just given up my job so I can fully focus on my final year :/

    My accomodation is £112.35 a week, ensuite, self-catering. Not only did I get the more expensive ensuites (just my luck) theres a catch, I also have to pay for an electricity top up card on top of my fees. Yearly total: £4461.90. so it takes away the whole of my loan.

    But an ensuite is an ensuite, so I'll have to make sacrafices elsewhere :-)
