    So I’m moving to uni this year and rather than halls I’ve decided to move in with people I already know who will be in their second year and I will be in my first, will it make a difference that we’re in different years?? Will freshers still be as good and will I still make my own friends etc? Any tips/advice would be great

    Is it still possible to make friends with your flatmates, I assume the age gap isn't too great, and they can give you a lot of advice about first year! I would also look at making friends on your course, joining societies or in your accommodation block too.

    You should be fine but you'll probably end up hanging around second years the most. Might be a good thing because you'll actually go to the decent clubs. It won't be as easy to make new friends if you're not in halls with other freshers but as long as you make an effort with the people on your course you should be fine. I'd recommend joining a society as well. Try not to rely on your second year friends too much though, it's important to have your own social life and you'll need people to live with when they graduate. Also when they're in third year they'll have loads of work and probably not as much time to hang out with you when you're still in second year.
    If it's not completely finalised then I'd probably reconsider and think about going into halls if you do want a better first year and freshers experience. You'll always have this other group of friends but it'll just mean you'll be able to live your own life and have your own friends and flatmates. You'll have a much wider social circle.
