I feel like if I don't stay on campus I will feel left out and I wont be able to make friends. The thing is I have my own flat so I still have to pay rent and bills to live there so I can't possibly live on campus.

Heya, just giving this a little bump in the hopes someone will see and reply. Image What uni are you going to?

You should also check out the new connect pages to find other people who have applied for the same courses as you! Image

I would stay it entirely depends on your social skills. You could live off campus and have a FANTASTIC first year or live in halls and be totally miserable. Of course, you will be missing out on some social events if you are not living on campus, but that won't hinder you from making friends and having great fun. Just make sure you join some societies and talk to as many people as you can in order to have a normal and dynamic university life "outside home", though.

Hugely depends on your uni...

If your going to a campus uni I would strongly recommend going into halls for the first year. It will make meeting new people so much easier, as well to put it simply... it will force you to interact with new people rather than sitting in your room at home talking to your old mates from school on facebook all night. As well as the traditional "drinking nights out" most flats/halls end up organizing "monopoly/movie" etc. which in my opinion is where you actually really get to know each other.

If not make sure you join lots of societies and really put yourself out there in lectures.
