    Are you at a huge disadvantage (in terms of socialising) if you live at home and not in halls?

    I currently live in an apartment with my brother and don't want to move out for two reasons:

    1) I already live in london, about 20mins away from LSE via tube, so there's not gonna be much point of moving away

    2) The cost of living in halls is really high

    The only thing that gets to me is I won't meet many people living at home. I need opinions from ppl currently at LSE. Do the majority of ppl live in halls or not? Are halls the main way of meeting ppl?

    Any help will be appreciated

    Cheers

    i read in another thread and a person expressed the same concern as you. And the LSESU officer answered it won't affect your social life, even if you are living at home.

    I agree, I don't think living at home is gunna be social suicide. Even if you don't join many societies, you meet loadsa ppl on your course so its can't be impossible to make friends if you don't live in halls.

    Living in halls has its advantages as does living at home, you just have to choose accommodation that you feel will be more convenient/better for you.

    living in halls is a good way for first year international undergraduates to settle themselves down if you ask me. in terms of social life don't really think it will be better than one who is living at home. I mean, you can still be active and be on time to catch the last bus home. Moreover you have homecook food and is more comfy at home...definitely.
