    Hi,

    I was ill and mostly housebound from ages 14-28, as such I've missed out on a massive part of growing as a person and have had very few social interactions. I'm starting Uni next year when I'll be 29, would it be weird to go in halls?

    I don't want to be the creepy old guy, I just want to make friends, go drinking like everyone else and have some fun that most people my age already experienced but I completely missed out on.

    Anyone else done it at this age?

    You wouldn't be the only one, some universities have blocks just for mature students. No one will care about your age. You just need to consider that halls can be noisy and dirty which whilst some people can deal with others don't get on well in that environment.
