I don't drink, however I still enjoy being sociable and going out.
I'm worried that if I am in regular halls I might get left out because I don't drink. However, I've also heard that people in alcohol-free acommodation seem to have a reputation for being quieter, not so interested in going out etc, and I don't want to end up missing out on meeting people and having fun.
Any advice/experience would be great - thankyou!

No answer either way.

1. If you go to an alcohol ok Hall (most of them), then you dont have to drink, even if others do. people might go to the pub a bit more or party.

2. No alciohol then they could still be sociable but might revolve more round non alcohol social activities and staying in etc.

Its a bit pot luck as to who you get roomed with, but Id guess the non alcohol people will be slightly quieter.

I think youd be ok with 1 as you can drink a soft drink and people run out of money or calm down.

Most people are used to the occasional person who doesn't drink- also maybe consider whether this is something you might change your mind about when you get to uni. I know i didnt drink before uni, but i ended up enjoying some at uni, so it was good I was with people who did go out.

At the end of the day, you will be fine whatever you do!
