    My accommodation is catered which means no kitchen :// Is this limiting in the social aspect at all? Haven't got any plans about what I'm gonna attend over freshers either, do people just make it up as they go along???

    Usually, even with catered accommodation in student halls, there's access to a space with a sink, kettle, toaster and fridge.

    Freshers? It's carnage. Just go with the flow.

    Just invite everyone into your room. Provide alcohol. You'll make friends for life.

    There should be some kind of kitchen, even if your catering covers lunch, weekends and holidays, cause students will need somewhere to make drinks and do other basic tasks. You'll likely at least have a kettle, toaster, fridge, some cupboards, a sink, and maybe even an oven - essentially a mini-kitchen, so you shouldn't be limited regarding options to socialise. It'd be very unusual for you to not have a kitchen of any kind, as you wouldn't have anywhere to even make a cup of tea.

    Being catered means the dining hall itself is big for socialising.
    I'd be surprised if you don't have any small kitchenette though or communal area.

    Hello ,

    Even if your accommodation is is catered there should still be a lounge area or small kitchen area for small bits for yourselves to make snacks and stuff.
    You will still have areas to socialise with people so try not to worry.

    With Freshers, just take it as it comes. Enjoy yourself and push yourself a little!
