My transport costs are virtually nil. Most people live within walking distance of campus whether you are a fresher in halls, or a second or third year living in the surrounding areas. Bear in mind the cost of textbooks before you start your course, particularly for science based degrees. While many of them can be borrowed easily from the library, it is helpful to have your most frequently used ones with you, however, a textbook can set you back between 30-60 depending on how big it is. They are not cheap!×
better organisation of moving out of halls into private rented accomodation in first year as it is basically a mad rushReport

I would really recommend living on the Vale in first year. This is where most people live and all the halls there are close together so its easy to go visit friends and for going to pre drinks. some of my friends who lived further away felt a little left out of things and often had to pay for taxis to come and join in, so get your accommodation application in as soon as it opens! as (at least when I applied) its a first come first served basis. There are many halls you can choose from very expensive (Mason - also a bit overrated - it is very nice with good facilities, a large kitchen and en-suite bathroom, but you can have just a good a time in any of the less expensive halls) to more reasonably priced (maple bank). I would say that all the accommodation on the vale is pretty nice except maple bank, which is fairly rubbish; small rooms and a tiny kitchen! But most of maple bank is catered, so you don't really need the kitchen much.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
