I'm currently in my first year at MMU and living in halls, I love my course but after 4 months still haven't really settled in and got used to living in Manchester. I've been incredibly homesick, going home at least every other weekend. I've made some friends but it hasn't been too easy for me seeing as I'm not your typical student who loves to drink, in fact I rarely leave the flat.
Two friends have asked me if I'd like to rent a student house with them in Manchester, and I feel torn between that and the idea of commuting by train from Liverpool. I know it's tiring but I'm only in 3 days a week sometimes for only 2 hours, sometimes 10. Commuting would be much cheaper for me but obviously staying here would be more convenient.
Does anyone have any advice on commuting or getting out of a rent? (I haven't signed anything yet but I'm scared I will and change my mind!) Thank you so much if you leave an answer, I really need help
