    So yeah. I was staying in private accom as I came in through clearing and couldn't get a place in the student hall and I finally got a place in the student hall for first year students (I'm a first year undergrad) but I'll be moving in in January which is four months after everyone first moved in!

    I wanted to move because staying in private accom was just so quiet! Anyway any advice or experience from the people you know or yourself on this? Right now I'm just worried I get placed with flatmates that don't really want to socialize/ go out. I would say I am a very sociable person but I'm quite worried moving into a place everyone's been for so long!

    Also, obviously I would be acquainted with my own flatmates but how do people usually get to know students living in other flats/ floors but in the same hall?

    By this time of year, a lot of people in halls will have formed their groups, and it will be harder to make friends. You may find yourself having to make a bit more of an effort in terms of organising things or asking people if they want to do something. If your flatmates still do lots of stuff together, I'm sure they'll make an effort to include you, but some flats won't socialise as a group by this stage.

    I'm sure your flatmates will know some of the other people living in the halls, and will introduce you. Otherwise, just make an effort to talk to people as you see them.

    It will be a different experience to moving into halls during freshers, but I'm sure your flatmates will still make an effort to include you.

    If you want a more active social life, it might be worth looking into joining some societies. A lot of people will do this around this time of year, so that would be a good way to meet people with similar interests.
