Hi. I'm in first year at Uni of Bham. I am really shy, a bit of a nerd, and haven't really made good friends yet. I need to find house mates for sharing accomodation next year and find this quite intimidating and a bit depressing if i'm honest. People i ask seems to be sorted already. Any advice welcome. Thanks.

Go to flatmate finding events. Your SU should run one.

Hi

You're not alone in your experience, lots of students have found it harder to find potential housemates because of the pandemic. As Blue Cow said, the Guild of Students offers housemate finder events. If you go to the events page here https://www.guildofstudents.com/events/ and look at events in February you'll see there are quite a few! I went to one in my first year and it helped me find 2 of my second year housemates. Alternatively, you could ask in any course groups or chats you might have for your course to see if anyone is still looking for housemates or maybe there'll be a group needing to fill a spot in a house they've already found. There are always people looking for accommodation right up until the end of summer, lots of people will post in the Facebook group 'Fab N Fresh' about houses. You've still got lots of time to find yourself a place for next year, and I know lots of friends who have ended up with a lovely house and great housemates that they found late in the game.

Best of luck, Jude - 3rd year UoB student
