You will need to put in a more conscious effort to mix with people during Freshers week, as you won't have a ready-made group of people to tag along with, but otherwise it'll be fine.

Will you be living at home or in a student house if you don't get uni accommodation?

They might not be studying in the same city as you, so you need to specific about the location.

Hey - Will you be staying at home if you don't get into the Uni Halls? There are other options such as Private accommodation - If you start looking now and give some providers a call they may be able to see if they have any flats with first years still available Jess C

In the Huddersfield area very close to centre, thought I mentioned that but guess I missed it

A relative who got a place in Clearing was given accom in a University run house, not Halls. Initially annoyed, she soon realised that the house was a) the nearest accom to campus, b) cheaper, c) a group of really great people. She is now sharing a 3rd year house with the same people. So - don't assume that 'Halls' is everything.

PS. One place to look for spare rooms in existing student flat shares (ie. if you get offered no Uni accom at all) : https://student.spareroom.co.uk/

Hey,

It completely depends. You can get Halls accommodation (i.e. Unite Students, things like that) or you can get private accommodation. In my opinion, university halls are the way to go, even for the first few years. Ease of bills, everything all wrapped into one, while you find your feet and begin working your way to being independent.

I think, socially, it's best to go in Halls, really. You meet so many people. BUT... it's not the be all and end all. Making friends with people on your course is good incentive. You'll be with them for years, some of them will drop the course (moving to others) and you'll create a good friendship branch that way.

Hope this helps
Joshua

Not sure what uni I would be going to yet (it’s if I look in clearing). Also most universities seem to be able to help you find accommodation

In that case, you may get on with the housemates there (although they may be second and third years). There are always going to be lots of opportunities to meet new people if you're living within the university city.
