    I am a first year and although my flat mates and I get along we aren't living together next year as they all have other friends. I haven't met anybody I want to live with yet and I am worried I'm going to be the only one, as people have already put deposits down for houses and I haven't even got one person to live with. I'm not picky I just don't have that many friends and people have all already formed groups so I struggle with that too. I've only been at uni 2 months but somehow I seem to be the only person in this situation.

    The people who rush into forming groups and reserving accommodation this early will nearly always end up regretting it. Only unscrupulous landlords will be pressuring for deposits.

    Have a look around your student union website. They’ll normally run a housing week in February. Often that will include helping you find flatmates as well as flats
