Should I moved into halls or stay at home?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I'm expected to move into halls as I enter my final year at university, however, I'm starting to get doubts about whether or not to move into halls or stay at home due to increasing the risk of exposing myself to corvid-19. The accommodation comes with private bedroom and ensuite bathroom, but I'll be sharing the kitchen with possibly 8 other unknown students. Should I stay at home or move into halls?
I would say that the decision comes down to a few things
- firstly, how far away from your uni do you live? because you might still have some face to face teaching that you have to travel in for and if you live far away this might be a pain
- secondly, do you have a quiet space at home that you can study in well that's free from distractions? With it being your final year you want to be able to concentrate and do your best!
- finally, how worried are you about covid-19? If you think it will stress you out more living with 8 other people who might not be keeping the kitchen clean etc then maybe it would be better for you to stay at home. But if you're not too worried about it then it won't really affect you so you would be fine staying there
I hope this gives you a few things to consider and helps you!
