    So just by chance me and my girlfriend are possibly going to the same uni (results dependent), it wasn't planned but we both loved our courses etc there,however, we are studying at different departments and have received offers from different accommodation.

    I was wondering whether people think its better to be single going into uni? What do people think about going to the same uni as my girlfriend? Thanks for the help in advance

    If your relationship is stable then I cannot see how it will affect you or your partner at uni, at least you can attend social events together

    this isn't a bad thing given you're in different departments and different halls... you'll be able to see each other easily but if you break up will also be able to avoid each other fine

    make a decision whether you want to continue the relationship or go into uni single, don't cheat, for the first couple of weeks commit to your different flats and make friends separate from each other so you each have your own circles... people change at uni, you may grow together or apart but you won't know until you get there

    Ok thanks for the advice, I think I'm going to end it with her and hopefully still be on good terms, then, we can just see what happens once we're at uni, and after a while once we've made our own friends etc and we then realise we want to be together then we can just see from there

    Just marry the ***** now if you're on similar academic/professional grounds and both from good families. Dont get sucked in to the legend/hype about uni being a playground for debauchery, it is not it is purely for the pursuit of academic excellence.

    If you're happy with her then why break up?

    If I was in a relationship and my other half was going to the same uni as me it would be nice to know I'd have someone to carry me home after a night out.

    If you love her why break it off?

    It sounds like you don't care about her that much if you're asking this (without trying to sound patronising) so yes, break up and good luck.

    Break up now so none of you cheat on each other, which will probably happen

    Grass is greener syndrome. Not sure why you thought you had to break up.

    :lol: really? My boyfriend and I went to the same uni in 2014. Still going very strong.

    OP, I've had a wonderful experience going to the same university as my boyfriend, and I'm going into my third year. It hasn't changed my experience at all, I've made friends and made the most of it. I now live in a student house with 3 friends and my boyfriend and I couldn't be happier! If you're happy together it will work.
