    I'm living at home for my degree, but I'm worried that it'll instantly put me at a disadvantage with making friends as I won't know people outside class/societies. I plan to join multiple societies to help my case, but there's nothing stronger than a friendship forged from sharing the last mouldy bread together, am I right?

    I already have regrets with my choice to stay home, but London's expensive and frankly, I can't afford rent for anything: halls and private flats alike.

    Anyways, will it be harder to make lasting friends if I live at home? The prospect of not making close friends in uni is killing me!

    Of course you'll still make friends
