    Is this normal!?

    Honestly it smelt like BO and piss so much I felt sick.

    Is it because most of the boys there were freshers and just have no personal hygiene skills yet? Newly moved out, never been on their own before type thing?

    How long does this last?

    Honestly not being a drama queen, it was so grim.

    Then dont sit near them, take a mask or some air freshener or get a big sign that says you stink?

    On the odd occasion it happened I recall I went and sat somewhere else or maybe I fell asleep? I dont think its common at all.

    I would but when you're in a packed room how can you do that? Some of them posted in the group chat that they rolled up in the same clothes they went partying in last night and had slept in too, does it eventually just trail off after freshers or something i'm going to have to get used to?

    I don't see how having never lived by yourself should affect your ability to have a shower in a morning or to wear deodorant.

    My lectures were never that bad tbh, and I studied Physics!

    I'm studying Games Computing, there's literally 5 girls and the other 120 odd are boys - I don't see why it should either but some of their hair was so greasy i thought it was wet from a shower at first... after a 3 hour lecture turns out nah, just greasy

    But there's your answer right there.

    Everyone is sweating because they were up all night playing Fifa and it was too intense for them. And they didn't shower just in case they missed the chance to play KSI or some other YouTuber.

    Just carry spray and say the room smells, then spray it and they should get the message.

    That's what I would do and this way you're not pointing fingers at anyone either. I'm on a male dominated course too and thankfully they don't smell. There's around 7 girls in total and 200 males.

    I'm not too concerned about that either, I knew I'm doing a male dominated before I started unfortunately. I ALWAYS carry spray with me as I commmute and people stink on the train. I'm worried it'll rub off on me lol.

    There's always this woman at the train station who literally wears the same exact outfit everyday, ew just ew.

    Imagine someone taking out a bottle of air freshener in the middle of a lecture and just holding it up like an air horn and spraying :toofunny:
