I think I'm gonna be the only one in my flat Watch
I was really looking forward to meeting some new people. I'm 25 and put on the 'special requests' part of my accommodation application that I'd prefer if possible to be with other mature students, so I'm wondering if this is why I'm on my own?
I'm not sure if my uni even HAS mature students- looking around yesterday at all the other residents I looked older than most of their parents!
I'm hoping so much that someone turns up late to the accommodation, or that there are some societies I can join (they all seem to be sport societies and nothing else).
I was really relying on making some mates in my flat, since I don't like clubbing :/
How likely is it that I'll be in this empty flat for a whole year?
Also which uni are you at? There's a few at Cardiff and knowing would help me give you advice.

Well that accommodation is used by both Cardiff met and Cardiff uni. Cardiff uni don't start until next weekend, so you may find you're sharing with some of them. Also since you asked for mature students, you may have postgrads with you, who also likely start later. Give it a few weeks, and then they'll likely open some kind of room swap system you could take advantage of. In the meantime, try and make friends with people on your course, and in the flats around you.
Agree with Jewelzela though I'm sure it will get full soon enough
