- Most student halls are very modern and aesthetically pleasing now a days
- Some halls even have their own gym, parking, cafes/bars and other breakout areas

- You don’t get to choose who you live with
- Could be noisy living with lots of students
- No guarantee so you might not get your preferred accommodation or room
