Housing
Type of housing: corridor
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The accommodation was fine. There were other people to make friends and facilities don't deserve any particular complaint. The location could have been a little closer to the university, but the distance was not in any way unbearable.
