Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice

Why? Because you are in touch with more students. And the university is much closer, you need less time to move specialy when the weather is really bad.
Personal comments:
Depends of the corridor and the people in you can be better or worse. Usually is not very clean.
