Budget is a key part of looking for somewhere to live.
Everyone gets different amount of loan ranging from the maximum amount and all the grants to only getting the bare minimum accommodation and having to make up the difference yourself (or with some help from your parents).
Having this in mind you should think about the cost of your rent, food, course costs, social life and anything else your money is spent on.
Living in fancy and expensive accommodation might be high on your list but when you factor in other things is it realistic?
If you’re living with friends can they also afford to live in this type of accommodation?
