I took a gap year, so I'm starting at Newcastle and couldn't get any accommodation so I'm living at home right now. None of my friends from school will be starting at Newcastle this year and living at home means I won't meet new roommates before going out.

Anyone else in a situation like this? Would like to do all the freshers stuff but not sure how weird it will be not knowing anyone at the events.

Hey there, I'm in exactly the same position, didn't expect to take a gap year...but hey here I am! Best thing to do if you ask me is throw yourself in to the mix and just try and enjoy it, that's what I plan to do. :woo:

Get a freshers wristband too...not many left:

You're going to have your course. Chat with people when you get to Newcastle especially on the minibus back

Well hey, PM me on here if you want to meet up at the union before the events. It's always less awkward when you don't start on your own lol :rolleyes:
