    • Thread Starter

    For people who have been and who are in Uni student accommodation with a shared kitchen ect

    Are there many introverted and/or shy people that choose to take this option at uni? or have you found that most of the people are extroverted and into parties ect.

    have you every come across someone who is a complete loner and just doesn't get involved with any social gatherings and is totally avoidant?

    What you'll find is many people will be sort of fake for the first few weeks, especially freshers. As in some will go wild and get hammered nightly because it's the done thing, despite the fact when at home they may be more introverted, basically they're putting on a façade. Ones this calms down you'll likely find a fair few groups who aren't into partying nightly. I know a couple who are still keeping it up, at the major detriment to their attendance/handing in assignments, but most people do calm down.

    Saying that though, one girl I know really isn't having a good time in her flat as the others are just nothing like her and she goes home a lot on days off and such. In a lot of ways it's down to luck, whether or not out of the people you're with if some have similar personalities. In fact it's one reason I think to avoid this sort of problem when signing up for halls Unis could provide some sort of questionnaire to judge personality, things like how outgoing you consider yourself, how loud/quiet you are etc. They could try and match up folks so at least a few in each flat seem to be compatible because despite the BS, opposites generally don't attract.
