But i want to live with students and i do not know will there be anyother students in lodge or just me and landlord.

There are some rooms for rent and close to campuses. Can you give me some informations about londges, and should i prefer the londging or prefer to room for rent, what do you think?

Hi Elise!

I think usually with lodgings, you'll be living with a family but I know a few people who lodge and they do enjoy it. It also has the advantage of being good value for money. If you want peace of mind, another option, if you can afford to, is to make an early trip to see the easyroommate apartments before you commit to one. Your best option, though, might be to wait for the student-to-student noticeboard since there are new vacancies every day, you're more likely to get accommodation with other Kingston students, which seems to be your ideal option, and you have a while until the course begins. 

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to ask any other questions you might have.

All the best, Rebecca
