NEW figures show that Huddersfield students' weekly rents are 17% below the national average.
But not all is well with student renting.
Nationally, the average cost of student rents have gone up 10% this year, from £53.80 last year to £57.66 now.
Huddersfield students pay an average £48 per week.
The figures come from the website www.accommodationforstudents.com
They are based on a survey conducted on 19,000 properties in 60 university towns.
Lauren Tonks, a third-year psychology student at Huddersfield University, said; "I have lived in private housing and halls of residence and have been surprised by the difference in price.
"Generally, halls are far more expensive."
She added: "Huddersfield is fairly cheap in comparison to neighbouring towns. The key is to shop around."
Tom Johnson, president of the Huddersfield Student Union, said: "The overall verdict is that halls are very expensive.
"The cheaper prices come with private housing, but you have to check contracts carefully."
Accommodation at Aspley Hall opened in September, but there have been complaints
of unfinished decorating work and a lack of disabled access.
* In London a student's average weekly rent is £102.
