    Hi! So I'll be studying at Kings College London this September. I'm thinking of commuting since rent in London is incredibly expensive. I thought I'd create a group so that we don't feel left out of any social events and stuff.

    Feel free to post what course you're studying

    Aw thank you!! I'm not too hopeful about accommodation since I applied recently and I don't think I'll get Stamford. I'm thinking of commuting.

    What course you studying? And don't worry you aren't in this alone :')

    Im commuting too, but im genuinely worried ill miss the oppurtunity to make friends as freshers week/events are not the same when you're commuting. Those in accomodation get to know each other before freshers so have people to go with while im sat here not knowing anyone lmao

    Hey I feel exactly the same! That's why I'm trying to get some kind of group together so that we don't miss out on anything.
    There's quite a few of us here commuting so don't worry!
