3. Edge Hill University 

Edge Hill, located in Ormskirk, in the outskirts of Liverpool, was considered to be the best value-for-money student accommodation in the national student housing awards in 2019. With options ranging between £77 to £143 a week for this upcoming academic year, it’s a very good value for money. All its halls are self-catered and a majority of rooms have ensuite options. Looking at their accommodation, I’m honestly very jealous. It looks very nice.

4. Royal Holloway, University of London

Royal Holloway, located in Egham, Surrey, so not actually in London, has a number of different student options. One, Founder’s, looks like an actual castle and was inspired by the French Chateau de Chambord in France that has also been used as a filming location for a number of different movies like Avengers Age of Ultron or Jack Ryan, so it’s definitely unlike any other student accommodation options. What’s more, the accommodation is fairly reasonably priced too, with options ranging from £122 to £187 a week, there are options within everyone’s budget.
