    For want of space, the year I retired back in 213; DMU were putting some first year's up in M1 Motorway hotels and busing them in.

    My granddaughter is studying at Aberysrwyth Uni and staying in student accomodation. The whole of the seafront at Aber seems to specialise in flats, bedsits for students. I have to say though that a lot of them are reasonably priced. The cost for my granddaughter is £700 per term for a 1 bed flat,with her own bathroom and shared kitchen.

    Cardiff is the capital of Wales though, so that is a factor in the price of places i daresay.

    That's very reasonable !

    My oldest is paying £700 per month . . . in Edinburgh.

    Blimey. Then again Edinburgh. Aber is quite a small seaside town, not in the same league .

    My gramdaughter has just moved into a completely seperate flat of her own in the same building that her previous accomodation is in. She hated the fact that she was the only person who cleaned the kitchen. It was all rather gross, so a proper flat with kitchen/livimg room, bedroom, bathroom all in including poll tax, heating and lighting, tv license, and broadband is £150 per week. All she has to do is buy food. And after the floods in Aberystwyth last year, they have beem completely re decorated and flood proofed. It is beautiful flat i must say.
