I would definitely recommend staying in halls when you first join university because you'll make so many new friends and make crazy fun memories together. Living in university halls was the best months of my life.

Zarnab Nazir (Walkden, Kingston Hill)

I lived in halls in my first year and it is one of the most memorable times of my university experience. That's when it really started to feel like I was at uni – sharing a flat with five other people, making my room feel like my own space, it was fantastic!
