Hi 😊

I have firmed an unconditional place for biological sciences with study abroad to start in September. I am looking at accommodation, and initially thought about living in a studio as I will be 27 when I go to university, and I prefer it quiet but also worry about missing out on social opportunities so am now considering applying for shared en-suites. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or could share their own experiences? And maybe ideas on which accommodations may be seen as traditionally more quiet? Thanks 😊

Hello haychcat,

It will be great to welcome you in September! Can I check which campus you are going to be based at? I would say it is down to personal preference really and what you think will work best for you. Certain halls do have reputations for being more/less lively, but with different students living in them year on year it is not a guarantee although perhaps a slight indicator as it will influence the halls people apply for.

Being in shared halls is not the only way to meet people - regardless of where you live it is really worthwhile joining societies if you can find the time to get to know people with similar interests to you. They are a great way to meet and socialise with people, so this may be something it is worth you considering when making a decision on where to live.

Hopefully a few more people will get back to you, in the meantime you might find the following threads useful to look at/repost the question in: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1750579 (for Exeter Campuses) or https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=2993065 (for Penryn Campus).

Hope this helps and good luck with your decision making!

@haychat great to hear you will be joining us! Keep a look out for emails from us through August as we have a great Mature Students Together Network where you can meet other likeminded students. We will be in touch :-)
