    I'm starting my last year of uni in September and for 2 years I've lived in private accommodation (ensuite). I, like a lot of university students are wondering where to live next year. I have an offer from an acquaintance & she lives with 2 people on her course. A girl dropped out so they're now looking for a replacement. However we don't really know each other well, we've met a few times and I don't know the other 2 girls. I want to live in a house next year, I'm sick of living in hall type accommodation. My current flat mates are rarely ever in, if they're then they're in rooms. I haven't seen one of them since December but she's in the flat most of the time. So yeah it does get really lonely. If I don't accept the house offer I feel like I'll be forced back into halls. But a side of me doesn't want to move in with strangers I don't know. In a house you're sharing everything, it's more intimate imo.
    What would you do if it was you?.

    I don't think you have much to lose by moving in.

    I don't think sharing a house is much worse than halls. If you're concerned you could ask to visit and hang out for a few evenings to get to know everyone and ask a few questions about how they manage the usual problematic stuff like cleaning, bathroom time, bills
