    I've been confirmed a place at the University of Kent at the Medway campus to do I.T, but the thing is, I'm living at home! Will I miss out on social opportunities?

    I think a social life is what you make of it - if you make an effort to integrate with people living in halls, they will invite you along to various events and you'll be included. I wouldn't fret about it too much.

    Hi,

    I chose to move into student accommodation when I only lived 15 minutes away. However it was probably the best decision I have ever made as I got the true university experience and it was sooo much easier to make friends. One of my friends didn't live in our student accommodation last year and I felt like we hardly saw her.
    I don't mean to worry you, as if your a confident person you may find it no problem making friends, etc.
    Though I would definitely consider doing it next semester, year or something?
