Will I be left out if I don't stay on campus?Watch

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