    If anything it'll improve your social life because you'll be surrounded by other students and there'll be loads of events going on and you don't have to make as much of an effort to make friends

    There's pros and cons, but if you're willing to make the effort you'll have a good social life in both places.

    In campus halls is good because everyone's so close together and it's easier to get to know people which is why most freshers go to halls. Any hall, even a small one, gives you a feeling of being at home because you recognise everyone's faces withing a short amount of time.

    Living off-campus in the town can be great too as you're nearer the shops and entertainment and there's a great sense of independence and running your own life. You'll have friends from societies and your course as well, and the university puts on so many events that there's loads of chances to go out and meet people.

    Universities are so big that usually all the shops, pubs, nightclubs and entertainment places kind of gravitate towards them, so whatever you want to do for your social life will be really close by. You won't miss out, wherever you choose to live.

    Is there like flat parties in halls or do most people tend to go out anyway?

    The first week or two in halls is called 'Freshers Week' for a reason. There will be lots of events on that are designed to get the new students used to the area and people. Lots of these will be you going out as a group with your hall, and some unis even get you to all wear the same colour Tshirt so you can recognise each other. They want you to bond with your hallmates.

    Later in the year, once you've made your own friends and know the area a little better, you will start to develop your own routine for going out. Everyone has favourite places to go, and some people like having more parties than others.

    In halls you do have to be a bit more respectful of other people because you're living so close together (although there's always that one annoying room that plays really loud music at 3am!) but if you get on with the people in your halls often you'll go out together or have little mini-parties in someones room, the kitchen, or the common room if you have one. And of course that includes video game nights, movie nights, group revision, random emotional breakdowns when someone gets dumped, and so on, as well as flat parties.
