your experience - boyfreind/girlfriend staying with you at your halls?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
From the other point of view:
Expect to be pranked or have your door knocked on
Don't make it too frequent, certainly don't move in together into a single room..
Don't hang around eating in the kitchen... it's just really awkward.
I know some halls have rules regarding people staying in your room, so check that too!
Some unis have rules on length of visits but in reality no one cares until your flatmates complain.
My partner came to stay with me quite a lot in first year, as did some of my other flatmates' partners and it was never ever a problem. As most of us were quite close, we all just made friends with each others' partners as we all introduced them to each other straight away, and we're still all friends! On more than a few occasions my flatmate's girlfriend and I have met up separately as she's just really lovely and we got on really well. However, if you do stay to yourselves the whole time, you might feel like you become more distant to your flatmates. Obviously you want your alone time, but don't worry about hiding away if you do want to be close with your flatmates.
In first year everyone is meeting so many new people there's no reason why your partner can't be one of them, if they want to be. They've just got to meet all your flatmates the same way that you did and act just as friendly and willing to meet new people! It really shouldn't be a problem.
Hope this helped
