    I feel like I've made a really bad choice. I was meant to be sharing a house with 3 others on my course for next year but I've now told them that I don't want to sign any housing contracts as I'm worried if I drop out or fail the course for instance and that I would be liable to pay for the rent provided I couldn't find an alternative housemate. As a result one of these 3 people has now chosen to live with their other friends and is in the process of looking for houses, and the other 2 people are finding others they'd want to share a house with...
    but now I'm really worried cause what happens if I do decide to continue with my course, who would I end up living with ? I feel like I'd end up either living with random second years or getting my own 1 bed apartment as I don't think I can face living with freshers for another year in halls. I'm really stressed cause I feel like my social life is going to suffer if I did live on my own cause if everyone is in a house then they're liking gonna do stuff together like go on nights out watch movies ect and I feel like i'm just gonna be forgotten about and people will think I'm weird for living on my own. Any advice ?

    Is it really that likely you'll fail your exams? I think unless you're on the brink of failing it's not really something you need to worry about - and you always have the opportunity to retake the year anyway. That said, it's also not a huge problem to live with random people for second year, I would go for something like private halls so you aren't with a bunch of freshers but also not with an established group. You may make good friends there and it certainly won't stop you hanging out with old friends too. No one cares much about what other people do at uni so no one is going to think you're a 'weirdo' for making different living arrangements.

    If I was you, I would have used the signing a lease as a motivator to not fail. :sadnod:

    But anyway, Doodle's suggestion of private halls is a good idea!
