    wht do you hate about it? to hard? different expectation of the student on what they should do compared to college? atmosphere? friends?
    Then ask yourself why did you go to uni in the first place? what did/do you hope to achieve?

    don't worry, just breathe and give it some time i'm sure it'll all click in after a few more weeks, just get into the swing of the course and see how you feel then. even if it doesn't improve, you'll know that you gave it a good go! if you dropped out now, you'd always wonder what it would have been like..

    Give it a bit longer - not meaning to sound patronising but it could just be because it's such a big change - it takes some getting used to. Give it till Christmas and then see how you feel. And before you make any radical decisions talk it over with a few people including your folks if you have a good relationship with them.

    Just stick with it for a little longer. Try joining societies or get out doing things that interest you. Your house mates aren't the only ones that you have to interact with of course!

    Liking the course is great. I didn't really enjoy my course all that much at first but it got a lot better.

    I didn't really have anything in common with any of my house mates, but I found other people that were more similar to me and it got a hundred times better. It just takes a bit of time, but there are going to be people there who are like you.

    Also, I'm liking the username.

    being in halls isnt as amazing as you'd probably think it is! I miss the fact that when I was at home, my family would leave me to do my work and wouldnt distract me too much, but I hate the fact here everyone in my flat knocks on my door ALL the time and all I want is just to be left alone!

    I've grown to like being in halls...maybe because it's Loughborough and they're big on the halls experience.. I'm getting involved in RAG (raising and giving) and hall sports. All the halls compete against each other too in the sing off, which is great! it creates a good community feel.

    I feel the same. I thought that I might love it and meet some great people, but I don't. My flatmates are OK but I don't have much in common with them at all, whereas they can all be buddies together fine. Hopefully, I'll meet more people at societies and on my course, but I'm just not enjoying university.

    Yeah, I've gotten drunk and been to the events and talked to people. But this stuff is just not me. I'd rather be at home and with my best mates...

    Btw, NIN? Good taste

    I'm the same. I'm feeling really uncomfortable in my halls where I feel like I only have a couple of friends- the halls themselves are on a completely different campus to the main one, a 30/40 minute walk at the least. I'm starting to feel very isolated and from family circumstances I'm feeling very depressed, and I'm starting to wonder if this was the right choice for me.

    Is there any way you could transfer closer to home?

    I was in a similar position last year, i had friends in my hall and made some close friends on my course, but i still felt how you did. Uni isn't for everyone!

    I gave it a year,but only decided to transfer a few days before having to go back for my 2nd year. It has meant i have missed out on a place for this year but i have my place sorted for next year going into my 2nd year at a uni closer to home.

    You should still be able to transfer now, especially if it's to do the same thing as they usually don't mind up until the Oct holidays, however if you can try and stick it out for a year then try and transfer next summer, it's much easier to transfer if you've passed your first year already and have 120 credits, they usually let you on any course (obviously has to be a similar kinda path and does depend on some uni's) to start from the 2nd year.

    But seriously, if you feel like that then is it really worth being there? It's really not if you feel like that as you can make yourself end up getting ill over it and being happy is far more important.
