    So, myself and 2 other friends are planning on going to the same university and we have been great friends, really close to each other for about 2 years now and we are considering moving into a house together but I just wanted to see if anyone has had experience with this sort of thing because I don't want things to go wrong. So if anyone has a story to tell be my guest and tell me about it.

    For me and the other guy it is our first time out of home so... yeah.

    Thank youuuuu

    If you moved into halls, you may not actually live together and you may not get on with the people you live with. But, if you do live in halls, you do have the advantage of all bills being included in your rent. That means there's no argument over who keeps taking long showers or keeping the heating on all the time.

    Personally I wouldn't do it. I think in your first year you should live somewhere you will both branch out and meet new people which will be much harder in a separate house share.

    Also, it doesn't matter how well you get on with someone they WILL annoy you when you live together, whether it's bills, washing up, noise, girlfriend etc, there will be something at some point and in my opinion unless you've already lived together and tested the water I'd keep the two separate, you don't want to ruin a friendship with bickering over the heating.

    My starting point is uni as a LL, but you need to see whats on offer and weight that against the costs. For first year I'd probably go Hall.

    Don't do it.
    If you're still friends by second year, go private then like most people.
    Do your first year properly, in halls, new start like everyone else. People who already have friends are intimidating and you'll lose out IMO.
