    How do you find it? I'm thinking about living on my own next year for my final year. I'm sharing a house at the moment but can't say I really like it, I'm a fairly sociable person but like my own space as well. That's why I enjoyed halls last year.

    My friend lives on his own in a flat, and has done since freshers, he is an extreme introvert though so... each to their own.

    I'm not an introvert at all, but I love living on my own and having my own, quiet space. I can always go and see people if I want, but I can also get away from it all. Has the added benefit of no-one to fall out with!

    This is exactly why I'm living on my own in September. I won't have to make the effort to be sociable ALL the time, and it's good to get away from the university environment.

    The only thing I'd say is that living on your own has more implications than just the sociability side of it. It's generally more expensive - sometimes quite a lot more. So, balance up the cost as well as the other factors.

    One thing I found worked quite well for me is a small house/flat share with just one or two other people - it's a bit less hectic but it doesn't cost a fortune.
