Halls of residence
Most students in their first year at University will live in halls of residence. These are often on campus and are managed and controlled by the University themselves. It is one of the most convenient locations to live in during this initial year as the accommodation is close to the lecture halls and other University amenities that will be needed. Most universities offer private rooms, some will also have private bathrooms. The kitchen areas are often shared and you can choose between self catering and having your evening meal provided for you in the University restaurant. In some cases private pools of residents will also be used. These are often set up on the same basis of private areas with shared kitchens and bathrooms but instead of being owned and operated by the University they are managed by private landlords.
This option is often chosen by students in their second and third years at University and are often cheaper than halls of residence. These private rent houses will see students have their own private room and again a shared kitchen living room and bathroom will be provided. They are often fully furnished and will include all the necessary appliances such as fridges, washing machines and televisions. Student houses tend to be located close to University campuses making it easy for students to attend their lectures.
