    If i dont stay on the halls for my first year am i going to miss out? i really dont like the idea of sharing a bathroom or kitchen at all!!! thats not the main reason its because i have my dog which is a long story...

    so private accommodation seems most convenient for me right now and i have a friend to share with.

    I do want to get the most out of university though so do you think that going private will change my experience that much?

    i am quite confident meeting new people and ill join societies just want to know what everyones opinions are

    I really cant bear to get rid of my dog and if i dont go private ill have to ... i kno it may sound silly to some

    I live at home for university, because there's no way I could continue to fund my lifestyle and pay for student accommodation. Don't worry about missing out on anything.

    From what I've observed as a commuting student, not living in halls means you miss out on having an immediate social group formed for you, and spontaneity of socialisation. However, everyone talks to everyone in your first week or two, your good friends can go either way between being in your halls or on your course, and joining societies gives you a wider social circle to move within, so I'm sure you'll be fine.

    No its fine... I live at home and go to uni. Its strange at first because you don't know anyone, but its fine after a few days. Everyone is in a similar boat and most of the friends in the first few weeks will not be the ones you hang out with later on. Same about halls according to friends.
