    What I mean is, would halls be okay for someone who wants to keep themselves to themselves during uni and not make many friends?

    University is what you make of it.

    You are going to university with some 2,000+ first years, some of whom you will be living in close quarters with. These people may or may not throw parties, pull pranks or hold social events in the flat you are in.

    If you don't talk to people, it's highly likely they won't talk to you. I'm not going to presume to judge you for why you don't want to make friends but university is pretty much the most social place that you will ever go in your life. If you don't want to make friends, you probably won't. I hope that you do change your mind when you get to university and find at least someone who you become friends with.

    Don't join societies if you don't want to meet people because you will make friends.

    I hope this helps dude, even though it is 3 months late; I stumbled across the thread. Good luck if you've already signed up to uni bro.
