I'm going into my final year at Uni and I just dont know if its worth getting accommodation this year or not? Im not one who goes clubbing or drinks or anything BUT I was hoping to meet new people, socialise with my friends, go to society events etc but im worried that none of that will be able to happen

My uni is saying campus will be open and there will be social distancing measures in place, and that we can be in a social bubble with our flatmates but I just dont know if they're just saying all this because they want students to pay for accommodation etc.

If someone could tell me what they're planning on doing that would really help!!

I save a lot by not moving out. I'm only an hr away from campus. I'm in a society and I just focus on work tbh. Socially , I have one mate who lives on campus and I will only see when we arrange to meet and then otherwise I have to put effort into making contacts but as I'm 25 I don't mind it.

I prefer to keep focused and so less drama the better it is for me. So I avoid circles in general as it's a distraction to me

In your case. There's only one real benefit to staying home. You save some money. The other benefit is potentially you maybe focused more on studies.

But I'd say given you do want to make friends or socialise more. Moving out is sensible assuming you think it's worth it

Hey bubbleteaqueenn!

I'm personally still moving to uni this year as I find it easier to study at uni with my own space and access to the library etc
My uni is also doing some face to face teaching in the form of workshops and labs so I would need to be around for those also

I think if you can study well at home then it might be worth doing that rather than paying for accommodation - depending on how far from uni you live and how much it is to commute
You can still socialise and go to events without living at uni - you could stay at a friends occasionally if you wanted to

I hope this helps!

Depends on how much money it costs you in the accommodation and if you can covered it through student maintenance loan then go ahead.

if you are from outside of London and moving into there. I did say it's not worth it because it can cost around £10k to live there.

I am in the same situation, it take either 6 hours by train or 1 hour flight to move to University campus but i would still consider accommodation because i don't know if i will have the mood to study without going out and socialising with friends there.
