    I don't really see the appeal of going out and imagine I'd roughly go out twice a week, is this okay? Or are you encouraged to go out more?

    I don't plan to go out much to party/club, partly because of money and also because I don't enjoy socialising and would honestly much rather be playing a game/reading or revising. Essentially is it weird to just mainly stay in your room and only come out for lectures and to make yourself food?
    You are missing one of the major plusses of university if all you are going to do is eb a hermit gamer.

    If thats your thing though join some of the societies and think about moving into a house full of gamers in 2nd year.

    Not a problem at all, everyone minds their own business and there's no bullying or petty teasing of any sort. Your flatmates will probably think it's strange at first but they will no doubt come to accept it being as who you are and just leave you to it. Everyone is friendly.

    If that's what you want to do then cool. Why would you need to worry what others will think anyway?

    no one will care too much but you also won't make any friends... I would get involved initially, as someone else said you can move in with people with more similar interests later but focus on meeting people and making friends at first

    Hello ,

    At the end of the day, you do what makes you feel comfortable and helps you enjoy university. All I say is, if you do this, you are missing out on what university is all about. You aren't embracing the experience and essentially saying you are going to university and going the life you've already been living - which is fine because you are comfortable with that and no one will judge you for it - but you should realise that university is about socialising and making friend and memories and really embrace that student life and university experience - it's not all about partying and clubbing - that's just the stereotypical glorified student life but there is so much more to it than that.

    Best of luck
