Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? I would choose the same because I lived in a flat with 7 other people where we each had our own bathroom and room and we shared a common room and kitchan. Everything was brands new and clean. We had our privacy and yet we had a place to hang out.
Personal comments:
The accomodation I had were great, but that does not meen that everybody had the same dorm that I was living in

Yes, I would not have for one course, 2 days of lecture in a big auditorium and 1 day of seminar. I would instead have 2 seminars a week per course that way you can get to know the students and teachers better.
