There are 3 main options for student accommodation:
University Halls, Individual House/Flat Share & Private Halls of Residence. We’ve weighed up some Pros & Cons of each for you:
Pro: University Halls tend to be in great locations (great for both personal & student life!)
Pro: Provides a good support network as they are owned & managed by the University.
Con: You will have no control over who you will live with.
Con: They are often not the best quality and can be expensive too.
Individual House/Flat Share
Pro: The most popular option for second year students after leaving university accommodation.
Pro: This tends to be the cheapest option
Con: Again, no control of your fellow housemates unless you move in as a group.
Con: No control over the quality of your landlord or letting agents.
Con: Quality can be very Varied (what’s lurking behind the woodchip?)
