KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.

Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? To live on campus is even more expensive.
Personal comments:
Very expensive but is like that in the whole England. If you live in a Hall then you do not have to cook but you also have to follow theit timetables like having dinner at 5:30, that is unsual for Spanish people for example
