Considering Dropping Out Of Uni Watch

    Hi, so I am considering dropping out of uni, the course isn't that bad although it is a bit of work, I stay in student halls where it is 20 people to a floor and 10 people to a kitchen. But the halls have been divided ever since the start really, it started with people stealing each others stuff in the kitchen and now it has moved on to a massive argument, people haven't been cleaning up after themselves and on Saturday people had stuck rubbish to 3 of our doors and today the porter knocked on my door telling me that we had to clean up the mess in the kitchen and hallway despite me not having created any of it, so I cleaned up some of it meanwhile the majority of people never did anything, the kitchen sink had also been blocked and if it requires replacement then everyone including me who didn't block it will be required to pay for it.

    Not only this but with the divide, people have been trading insults, etc. and I have been trying to stay out of it but have been stuck in the middle with one side giving me verbal abuse, etc. The conflict and insults just make me feel so ill and I don't know if I can take it anymore.

    I am feeling as if I just want the experience to be over with and drop out.

    So the problem is the hall and you want to drop out of uni?

    I think you should consider moving to different accommodation. Don't chop off you arm if you only need to amputate the finger.

    If you are enjoying the university and the course asides from the halls experience, then don't drop out. Remember, if you change your mind you'll then have to go through the application process again and funding can be restricted. Don't lose out on a good education because of petty and silly individuals like those in your halls.
    Speak to people in your Student Union for support and advice, as well as look into changing halls. You may have to then go to private accommodation, but if it makes you a lot happier in the process then I am sure that'll be worth it. Sorry you have had such a bad experience, but there is definitely more options than just dropping out, so definitely look into them first!

    Changing halls isn't easy because there is a transfer payment I believe then on top of that you need to have someone move in to replace you, if I moved out and went private then unless someone replaced me I would have to pay for private and uni accommodation.
