i’ve been in my first year uni accom with my flatmates for 3 weeks and all of them stay in their rooms apart from one that i get along very well with, they don’t go out or clubbing and only a couple drink, and i’m the opposite. i try to get them to talk and have fun but i’ve just given up now. i want to move flats and be with more social people that i will get along and can go out with but i’m worries if i move the flat may be the same HELLP MEEE

Hi saylumwind

I would suggest looking into if you are able to move accommodation if this is something you would consider or want. Sadly, accommodation allocation is random so people can be put into halls with others with who they may not share the same interests. I would also suggest trying to find people who share the same interests as you on your course or join some clubs or societies to try to find people who like to go out and socialise like you.

Hope this helped, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi there,

It's always pot luck when you go into accommodation. Sorry to hear that you aren’t enjoying your time in halls as much as you could be. The best thing to do is to speak to your halls manager, or on-site team and understand whether there are rooms available elsewhere - they may even know what the people are like in that flat and be able to help you choose. There may not be spaces elsewhere but your on-site team are the best option in terms of starting that conversation.

Best of luck

You know it could be worse. You could have nightmare housemates, whereas yours are just quiet. Son was in this position and just regarded his flat a base to study and sleep in and based his social life outside his accommodation. You can go out with other people, join societies etc and then come home to a peaceful flat with people who are up all night partying when you need to sleep or work which was daughter's experience last year. I know which was worse out of those two scenarios.

Hi saylumwind

Sorry to hear your flatmates are not all you hoped they would be. Perhaps, if you have made friends outside of your flatmates, you could find out if there are empty rooms in their accommodation. As others have suggested you should also chat with the accommodation team, as they may well have heard from students who want to leave "a party flat" for somewhere quieter, this is quite common so although you may have to wait a little, it may well happen. Another tactic would be to put the word around on social media yourself, someone who is fed up of their noisy housemates may well jump at the chance. Then the pair of you can talk to the rooms team, to get the legalities sorted out.

Best of luck
