    I'm at first year at uni. I live in halls and I am so miserable. I don't like my flatmates, they are the complete polar opposite to me (they're party animals and alocholics) I am so nervous about going in the kitchen in case I'll encounter them. I never go in after 6pm so I quickly get dinner about 5pm. They have been using and moving my stuff, so I've moved it into my room. My cooked dinner is always a microwave meal so I can be in and out of the kitchen quickly and then I eat it in my room. And I don't need to go back to wash up as it is a microwave meal. I have 0 friends, my whole course seems to be alcholic party animals. I go to a soceity, but I am still ignored. So I have decided to go back home at weekends (40mins away on the train.) I have been much happier when at home. I am considering ending my accomodation contract and commuting as I am enjoying the course itself and I want to get the degree. I am committed to the idea of commuting next year and third year. There are people I have talked to, but I haven't connected to them, it's more of a relationship where I would chat with them when I see them (only about work) but not hang out with them.
    I love going home at weekends, I countdown the days until Friday the day I go back (no lectures Friday) and I feel down again on Monday morning when I go back.
    Some advice I have had is that I should put up with it for all of first year and then commute. And anyway I'd have to commute if I don't make friends.

    Yo, what uni do you go to if you don't mind me asking? Tbh, with people yeah, not much you can do. It's all part of the experience. Everyone is from different backgrounds. I get it can be annoying, but you have limited options. You can move to a new place with people you know or if you got money move to a studio apartment. You can do more to be socially involved. Anyways, you can private message me anytime.

    I lived with a bunch of jackasses last year who were of similar character, and like you I tried to avoid them (kitchen was the worst). It's unfortunate, but you will have to tolerate them unless you can convince the uni to allow you to move.

    I know it's difficult, but try to make an active effort with the society people and even join some more societies. I tend to find societies like nature, flim, gaming etc have more friendly people than, say, societies associated with sports.
