Making the choice between student halls and students houses is a big decision. With students on average spending £125 a week on accommodation, choose wherever you think will suit your personality and lifestyle best, and don’t feel pressured into living somewhere you don’t want to.
Student houses don’t have to be just for second and third years. They are still definitely something to consider as a first year as not all universities can guarantee a place in halls of residence. This is especially true for those who have gone through clearing or submitted late applications.
