    Hi there,

    sadly with your chosen course your social life will be significantly less, as you will be doing shifts ranging from 7ams, 9ams, 1pms and nights.
    also the nursing school isn't on campus, its in newcastle under lyme so if you lived off campus here you would be closer to it.
    hope this helps. x

    Making friends won't be an issue unless you let it become one.

    I live off campus and I'm a first year and I have made a fair few friends and have a rather active social life

    Societies are a definite

    Some departments do drinks and nibbles as an introductory thing. I made a few friends that way. Another thing is being introduced to other people helps you to make friends.

    The Keele bubble does exist so you'll probably find yourself speaking to and meeting new people wherever you are.

    Regarding having fun, Wednesday is the best night at the union. There are quizzes, karaoke, X Factor shows and loads of other events going on. You can find an events planner poster in the union for every couple of months or so

    Hmmmmm... the Keele Bubble IS pretty amazing... just make a few good friends who's rooms you can cotch in
    Personally, i think staying in accomodation makes Uni all the more worth it, but I don't know if that'll apply to everyone.
    Just be sure that you really want to live with your boyfriend before you turn down the opportunity.

    I don't mean to confuse things for you, sorry if I did :s
