looking for somewhere to live next year, what should I be aware of asthma-wise?

Hi :) hope everyone's well :)

It seems far too early to think about this!

I'm looking for somewhere to live for the next academic year, starting September 2013. I plan to move into private halls since off the houses around here are old and damp. I have a few viewings lined up but I as just wondering if I should look out for anything. I know I'm worse here and I finally accept that I should try to avoid asthma symptoms rather than just ignore them! Obviously I'll be on the look out for mould, and make sure that I won't be on the ground floor near where everyone smokes (like I am now!). But is there anything else? The buildings all look fairly new, definitely no more than 5 years old.

Thanks :)
