Hi guys,

I recently dropped out of Uni of Nottingham due to my course, however I will be going back next year. I was in catered halls, but am planning to live in self-catered accommodation next year instead (because the food in catered isn't great). I found it very easy to make friends in catered halls, and I'm just worried that I might not get on with my flatmates (when I move to self-catered), because they could have different interests than me etc. I heard that we fill out a questionnaire when selecting self-catered, so that they find it easier to put people with similar interests together - is this true? Also, what is the social life like in self-catered halls? Do people have many other friends aside from their flatmates?

Thanks

Hey, just giving this thread a bump :bump: Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific university or course forum should help you get more responses. :yy:

If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here.

Urinating in everybody's rooms and in pillowcases is a great way to establish yourself as the alphamale. That, or you could just introduce yourself as most people will be in your shoes and be looking to make new friends.

Firstly for BGP we didn't have a questionnaire about our interests and even if you noted some down I doubt they would care to check. In terms of flatmates, you can't really control what they'll be like, my flatmates last year all got along for the most part, but this year not so much. However even if you don't manage to socialise well with your flatmates you might find that you get along really well with people in your block. The social life is just fine, just get to know other people in your block as well and don't bank on getting along with your flatmates and you should be fine. For me, my main friends are from my course, and I live with one friend who I shared a flat with last year and consequently this year too. I can't imagine it's drastically different from catered halls, just a little bit.
