    I'm getting really worried as lots of people I'm talking to are starting to view houses and sign on places...

    I should point out I'm a first year but I live with a big mix of students and non-students in a private let.

    I'm really worried, because I'm not sure I want to stay here (as it is, plus I've heard my housemate saying all her friends will be moving in which means I'll be liviing with a bunch of loud pothead idiots which will be horrible.)

    The only sort-of friend I have is moving in with her boyfriend in a town a few miles away. I have no other friends.

    I just don't know what to do, stay here and be in a really crap house full of crap people too? Or just do potluck and find a random room for next year, and hope for the best?

    I'm so worried cos I don't want my life to be hell living in some horrible place. No one wants me.

    If you're that stuck for options, why don't you try and apply for either university owned halls or private halls? It's not as stigmatised as it might sound and from what you've said it doesn't seem like you'd have much fun in second year if you stayed where you are currently.

    Pot luck but meet the new housemates for a few drinks beforehand and ascertain whether they're the kind of people you would get on with.

    We put an ad in the housing office when we had a spare room to fill and the girl that we ended up giving the room to is now one of my best friends.

    EDIT: its probably worth meeting your current housemates friends first too. You shouldn't judge people as "loud pothead idiots" before you've even met them.

    The thing is I already lived in halls last year, there are not private halls round here, but I'd be 21.. living with a bunch of freshers when I've already 'been there done that' I don't think I could hack it
