    Hello,
    I'm in year 12 and have been in a relationship for 19 months. I will be applying for uni in a few months. My girlfriend and I have said for a while now that we are going to uni together, but would it work ?
    Obviously every relationship is different, but in your experiences is it a good idea to go from seeing her on weekends to living with her ? Its a big move to make, especially considering all the other pressures of going to uni. So should I go to uni with her ? Or is it somehow destined for disaster ?
    Thanks

    So are you both applying to the same university and the same flats? If you could, I would recommend trying to get into seperate halls. That way you both could make your own friends and if you stay together could always live together the next year.

    No harm trying but do get seperate halls, then if it doesn't work out you can have some space. I went to the same uni as my girlfriend and it just didn't work but I know plenty of people for whom it worked out just fine good luck
