I don’t think they can. And if they can they haven’t said anything directly. I met another guy my age who transferred from another course and has to start over but that’s about it

Quite a few people start uni at 20 and LOADS start at 25+.
It's up to you whether you go for uni owned or private accommodation. The majority of people in uni owned halls have come straight out of 6th form or college and it's their first time moving away from home. This is mostly true for private halls. In other privately let student accommodation, most people are 2nd year +.

Hiya!

In first year two people that I lived with were 19 and 20 and there was no difference at all! I think especially with covid students will have deferred for a year so you won't be the only one who may be older than the average student. Age really doesn't matter when you are at uni I have found
