Hi, I just finished first year in London all my friends have sorted out flats, and I have some girls who I know that I can get a house with but they party a lot. I like to drink and hate not socialising but for me i prefer pubs, cafes day things ya know and they are more into clubbing and heavy heavy drinking. I could stay in accommodation at my uni or a private accommodation elsewhere in London (however these are further away from campus) or I could get a studio flat or do I just go with these girls, any advice I’d really appreciate I’m kinda panicking for next year.

Hi Abby221002,

Socialising seems to be important to you so moving in with the girls you know could potentially be a good idea. However, I think it's important to consider if their clubbing and really heavy drinking is going to end up impacting you? If they're likely to be really noisy coming home from the clubs and it's going to impact your sleep on a regular basis, it might not work. If they're going to want to throw house parties on a regular basis and it's going to affect your studying or you think it might be a bit too much, it might not work for you. I think it would be worth taking a bit of time to contemplate what you think you could tolerate and cope with living with the girls, which might help inform your decision.

If you feel like the safe option is to live elsewhere, looking for shared accommodation or a studio near where the majority of your friends live might be the better option. I'm going to assume it'll still be close enough to campus, and you'll still get the social aspect too.

Weigh up the pro's and con's of each one and make the decision that you believe will suit you best for the next year!

All the best☺️

Thanks Rebecca, I’m really thinking of student accommodation atm instead. It’s a private one so should have a range from 1st year to 3rd years which might be nice. And it also has a big station nearby and can get fast direct route home easier. I’m also a student nurse so having partying all the time especially when I’m on placements getting up at 5/6 am wouldn’t be that fun lol. I appreciate your advice and I’ve spoken to the girls and think the best fit will be accomodation

Thank you for the help - Abby x

Hi Abby,

You're most welcome☺️ It sounds like you've made a well thought-out decision, and you're doing what's best for you which is most important!

All the best with your placements, your degree and your new home come September!✨
