Is It Better To Stay On-Campus Or Off-Campus In UK Universities?

To Stay Off Campus Or On Campus: Which One Is Better In Uk Universities

Hi family members.

Please I would like to find out from you what you think is better for me either to stay off campus or on campus in University of Nottingham.

I have never been to UK and I am sort of confused as regards accommodation there, come this September.

I am waiting for your candid advice.

God bless.

You can also stay off campus, the prices are not that much anyway just £10-£30 difference

the school can give you a list of houses available off campus from registered landlords

get one that is not far from everything preferably walking distance- campus, city centre, and fun

I still think deeply on this issue of staying off-campus or not in Nottingham, Sutton Bunington Campus. Considering the fact that my finance is not that good.

Therefore, I am tempted to stay off-campus but,

What a problem to have. On or Off campus. How about worrying whose BQ you can afford to rent, to attend college in Naija, where on-campus accommodation is a premium. Naija people, "Tale of 2 cities"

You would only be allowed to stay for a year on campus.

Financially, the same rate you pay for your single room on campus would get you a double room off campus. The university's prospectus on accommodation would shed more light on this.

Socially, hmmn, although "Dis Guy" is right to an extent, don't forget that the question mark kid (the guy who killed some students in the states last week) also stayed on campus but had no friend . . .

i would say it depends on your person and age

if ure young (<19),quite conservative and like to focus on academics alone, then stay on Campus

But if ure mature and like to be all round, then stay off campus.

I would stay off -campus if you ask, that way you'll fit into the UK society better and it wont affect your education in any way. You need to quickly brush off the foriegn student image and fit into the community.

Cost of living aint that different, campus accomodation is expensive

stay on campus. you'll get the most out of your college experience that way, meet and get to know more people from your school, and assimilate better.

stay at least for your first year.

man nottingham? i will advice you 2 stay on campus 4 @ least 1 semester bcoz of the kind of life up here. you tend to be more safer on campus ( depending on ur personality anyway) and the cost of living on campus is cheaper to living outside the campus. it fairly close to the train station and good life in campus and maybe u might end up in a room in my ex-room in derby hall (no 11) man its ganna be wicked but take it easy ooo. its ur choice anyway

@bedos: congrats man. Since u've never been to UK, and since the price is not so different(as they say) I think you should stay on campus so that u can make friends and settle in fast.

@poster,

Most of what's been said are relevant, What level are u studying Bsc. or what? You will make friends faster staying on campus but the cost of being on campus and staying off are not that far apart, besides u will have some limitations if staying on campus, u decide

International students are advised to stay on campus for one year. But it will be Of your own gud if you can stay oncampus for at least one semester. staying on campus for your first year will enable you know your school and students around you much betta. oncampus has its own rules and regulations which you must always obey and will help you know how strict or friendly your school can be.

I'lld suggets u stayed off campus due to cost and mainly concentration, on campus its quite easy to get carried away with teh student life, with most uni's in the UK having pubs and events within the campus it bvecomes very distracting. It all depends on how strong ur will is but either way i'lld suggest staying off campus

It depends man on the type of accomodation and rate ur school offers, in most cases d prices of campus accomodation tends to be close to the price of u getting  accomodation off-campus. If u are planning to work when here and can afford at least 4 or 6 months rent upfront on arrival, stay off-campus. I don't know much about Nottingham but accomodation should be fair enough. I wrote this based on my experience in bedfordshire uni,

All the best man,
