Hi there, my boyfriend and I are both on our gap year, but in September 2017 we're hoping to be moving to London together to study. We both feel like we don't want to miss out on the experience of meeting and living with other students, but don't want to live separately, is it possible to find other students willing to share with a couple? Does anyone have any advice or experience with this? Thanks .

People generally don't want to share with a couple as it can be awkward for flatmates and potentially cause issues if you two split up. Most student places won't let couples share a room so you'd be letting two rooms anyway (which I guess does mean you can not mention you're a couple...). Honestly I would do one year in halls separately and then try and find a place together if you still want to, you can basically live together anyway and spend half the week in each flat if you want to.
