How likely is it that we will be able to go to the same uni if we both apply for the same ones but different courses - I’m going down a law route, she’s going down a neurologist route, and would we be able to share a room? Just curious Cus I dunno how unis work - like can u choose ur roommate?

Depends on the uni and their accomodation allocation system. I've seen those that give you a code to share with your friend if you book a twin room but doesn't guarantee you two being put in the same room while some other unis don't even let you choose the hall to live in and simply offer you a place based on your indicated preference. Alternatively you could rent a room/flat/studio privately.

You should consider the cost and experience at the same time. You would be more isolated from the other First Years, and depending where you go the accommodation could be a lot more expensive than University accommodation. Although if you pool your money together you might be able to manage it.

The only compulsory ones I've seen thus far is Oxbridge and by deduction maybe Durham. But do factor in other things too as Ray3RE has mentioned. It might be more expensive compared to a normal non-ensuite room but you might not have to share a bathroom (have definitely heard of some horror stories!) and kitchen with others depending on your type of housing.

How comes we would be isolated isn’t there fresher parties and we could invite people back to socialise more or am i being naive?
