Second year uni housing watch

    Hi,

    I'm currently in my first year at uni, and many people have started to sort out their groups and houses for next year.
    I am really torn. Some of the flatmates I have lived with this year have asked me to live with them, and I get on with them well but they are much more of the 'clubbing' type than me, are very loud and sometimes annoying, and I'm not usually up for this. However, if I go with these guys, I have to leave my other flatmate behind, as they don't get on with other. But this other flatmate wants me to live with her next year, as she doesn't have anyone else, but we don't have a group of people to live with. I get on with this girl quite well, there are times when she really grates on me, but I don't really know what to do.

    Help!!

    Are you in London or out of London for uni?

    Also, living with just one other person isn't that bad.

    Go with your instincts. I would choose who ever you are most like minded with and always avoid sharing a house with anyone you fancy the pants off.

    It's really early to be choosing housing, you have only known these people for about a month. Just pick who you prefer living with, sounds like its the second person.

    I'd go with the first group. They'll probably calm down in second year, and if you only get on with this girl 'quite well' and she sometimes grates on you, then you would most likely come to resent her particularly as you don't have a group to live with.

    Depends where you live. In Liverpool all of the affordable housing that is close to the city centre is completely snatched up by December. So if you don't get it then you either have to move further out (costs more for transport as it's too far to walk) or pay over a grand more to live closer to uni.

    At OP do whichever you think is best for you. I know we're taught not to be selfish in our decisions but don't move in with someone just for them or if you think it'll make you at all unhappy or miserable. I made that mistake in first year and it was awful.
