    I lived in halls first year, didn't have the best flat mates only keep in contact with one of them. I now have a student house with my boyfriend.

    My dilemma is he's in his final year and I still have one more year left. I live fairly close so I would be able to commute quite easily if I moved back home. Or should I find shared accommodation in the hope of making some decent friends?

    But then I'm worried about what type of people I may end up living with, if they are just as bad or worse as my previous flat mates. But will I struggle moving home after living independently for 2 years? But then after I finish uni I'll be moving back home anyways for a while?

    I'm just having a dilemma at the minute and some outside opinions would be helpful

    You could find a private place to share with your boyfriend.

    That is an option but it depends where his job will be based and if it's close enough for him and for me to be able to commute to uni
