    So... In November, when I was a young, simple and naive fresher, I jumped up and signed up to a house with some of the girls I lived with in first year - At that time, I didn't have a problem with them, but once the novelty and niceness wore off, it turns out two of the girls are complete vindictive bish's and control freaks and i'm really not looking forward to moving in with them next month.

    They don't consider anything I have to say, they don't listen to me and I just know they're going to turn the other two against me (One is heading that way) - Living with them is going to be a nightmare!!!!

    Guys, i need advice on how to survive the year!!!
    I only have a few friends on my course because my course is TINY and I didn't join any societies because they all seemed a bit naff... please help!!!!!!


    PLEASE

    Have you considered finding somebody else to help take over your tenancy? I think you would be able to find somebody on here or spareroom that could replace you. Or there is even options of room swaps or finding alternative accommodation such as private if you do manage to find a replacement!

    I've just looked at spareroom and I'm definitely going to do that next year, and just live with some new people, even though things may get better, the process with these people has been a complete and utter nightmare!!
    I'd list my room but I've already spent £400 in estate agent fees, £400 on a deposit and then £800 on summer rent... i couldn't even put anything in the property!!!
    thank you Sophie, for your help

    If you're looking for a replacement asking your flatmates if they have anyone they'd like to swap into your house might be worth it, you may have to take that person's room but your flatmates might kick up a fuss about living with a random person and someone who knows them is more likely to not be concerned about why you want to leave!

    The likelihood probably is that you will stay. In that case I would just do your best to preserve good relations in the house, try and be easy going and easy to live with and remember you can always retreat to your room. Put yourself out there to make more friends, invite people on your course to study together, go for lunch after a lecture and try and put some effort into those friendships and join some societies even if you don't think you'll enjoy them much, if you go to a couple of socials and get chatting to people you wont necessarily have to do the activity much once you've met people! And remember it's only one year and then you can go back into halls if you need to to meet more people.
