agree with this. I cycle between loving the pints & being a sworn teetotaller, so I’ve experienced the pain of being judged unduly for not drinking.

As much as I’m looking forward to having a few beers with my new BM4, BM5, BM6 colleagues I’ll be getting rounds for everyone regardless if it’s a double G&T or a Diet Coke. No pressure either way Shaky2017 😁

Anyone looking at private hall studios? I am tempted as I like my privacy and not a big drinker but am worried about isolating myself and never leaving one room ? If anyone has any experience with this it would be much appreciated
I've been looking at all possible accom. options too, including private studios, and that has also been my worry! I'm going to be a fair bit older than most people so just trying to find the best option :-)

Thanks guys I’m final year undergrad going to BM4. I think I might go for studio anyway as I’m quite sociable naturally and think if I want to meet people being in a studio won’t make a big difference, especially with how close nit they run the BM4.

I was sober for one of my 4 years of uni to focus on sports and also just because I wanted to, and same as others have said, no one cared, and I still had a pretty fun and sociable year

I think for grads its a lot less 'freshers' kind of vibes anyway. I run my own business and enjoy my own space so I'll buy a place! If I were you I'd maybe just try and ensure its shared accommodation with graduates?

Our issue is we’re not allowed to link to groups or share personal details on TSR so we’re a bit stuck as to how to start organising anything within the rules haha

I was thinking this too. Do Southampton do anything before the course starts (even via Teams / Zoom) that would give us the opportunity to chat to each other?

This was my thought. i was hoping they'd send some sort of email once people had confirmed with links to an official group of some sort or a zoom meet and greet as you said

Was this in an email? I have the one about the "virtual accommodations week" but that ends today.

I’m struggling with this! I looked at ocean village which was nice but so far out. Most of our teaching is at the hospital which isn’t in the city centre!

From what I understand buses are good in the city. Personally, I have been looking near the Cultural quater. Roughly 40 minute walk to both highfield and Southampton General so not the closest but I am thinking about getting a bike. Buses are another option and its a short walk to the central train station which I will use to get to the Winchester. I think Shirley is a good location if you want to be closer to the hospital and there is a bus that runs between the hospital and highfield quite regularly so being closer to one won't hurt. Either way, with lectures at both campuses and a day a week at Winchester there will be plenty of travel.
