After results day, I went into clearing but managed to secure a place at Southampton uni. I was told that there wasn't any spaces in halls left however, and as I live pretty close to the uni I was told I had to live at home. I am not looking forward to this as I feel like I will be outside of the social elements of university, especially freshers week! All the posts I have read are about freshers week being for the people living in halls.. is this true? And is there any way I can join in on freshers week whilst still living at home? I don't want to miss out!
Good you secured a place with halls... I think you would have missed out a bit. The problem wouldn't be that fresher's events are only targeted to students living in halls, but the majority of freshers are living in halls, so obviously halls would be the place where the whole party starts and ends
I live in Winchester and am living at home when I come to Southampton in a couple of weeks and I'm also worried about missing out on all the parties and stuff during fresher's week! Anyone else living at home??
