    I stayed at home during my time at uni. You'll miss out on the halls experience but you can still have fun.

    Join societies, sports clubs and talk to people on your course and form groups. You probably have to put in more effort if you commute from quite far out to fully enjoy the clubbing experience but there's plenty of opportunity to make friends.
