    I want to study theatre practice at central school of speech and drama, I wanted to live in halls for making friends and stuff but found out they dont have halls and you have to find your own accommodation and was thinking is there any point, I live 40 mins away and read about people having live an hour away from the uni, do you think it would affect making friends at uni living at home? thanks for any answers!x

    I have a distant cousin who goes to a London drama school with no halls (could be the same one, don't know how many there are) and she lives with an aunt during term time who already lived in London. Even though I don't really know her she gets mentioned from time to time and from what I've heard she's made friends who she goes out with a lot. I guess that since halls isn't an option a lot more people live at home or with a relative and those who do rent somewhere probably live with a mix of people rather than all students who go there. Therefore it should be easier to make friends than if you went to a normal uni but lived at home (though that can still be done).

    they do have places in the university of london halls but then you'd be with students from all uol unis. but id imagine as most people arent all together in halls then they will make more of an effort to socialise with people on the course.
