    So with university just round the corner(Hopefully), I guess I've been thinking about a few things about it. I was wondering like how awkward is it when you first meet your flatmates, do you just sort of see them and say hi or do you go from room to room etc I just don't know

    When I was living in a student accommodation (6 people including myself), I was one of the first to arrive, it's a bit easier that way as you get to know everyone as they arrive. Just said hi, told them my name, asked what course they were studying, told them mine, asked if they were going to freshers or if they were just going to freshers fair. We became more comfortable because we started talking about these things and even went to the freshers fair (club,society things and buying uni hoodies) together

    Hey, Im new to TSR and I have recently just started writing a blog. I finished my first year at University and so decided to share my experiences right from finishing A-Level exams up till, well, now! I write about everything from applying to Uni, Finances, I also give my recipes, and I talk about some serious issues that I have dealt with in the hope to help people out. Be great for some support!

    To actually answer your question though, I found it quite useful to go onto facebook and find the accommodation pages for your University (Most Universities should have them). When you find out the room you are in, post on that page your room number in the hope of finding the people, there might be duplicate pages for your accommodation and you should do it on the Uni freshers page to cover everything. I did this and I found all of my flatmates (I was in a flat with 3 others, so not many to find, but, and I know its a cliché, it was a needle in a haystack) we were speaking on facebook maybe 2 weeks before actually moving in, so when I met them all it was not awkward. We felt like we knew each other more and we all laughed about how it could have been really awkward! But it wasn't. Don't worry about being nervous as A LOT of people will be, you are all in the same boat remember so everyone will be feeling that way!

    Try having your door wedged open when you move in. Gives off a much more friendly and approachable vibe imo.
