Is anyone commuting to LSE next 2023-24?

Hello! I am thinking of commuting to LSE next year for uni - i will be a first year. unfortunately i accepted my offer quite late and there was limited accommodation and i feel like living at home will be better? I do want to become more independent, but living at home i will be travelling and getting a job, so i think this could help. my biggest concern is making friends whilst at home, especially in london. i live around 40-50 mins by train and although i am luckily not too worried about the finances of moving out, i just feel im quite shy. i know moving out could help this but im worried about hating my accommodation and just going home every weekend. is anyone else in the same position?
Hi, I'm in the same situation but I'm an international. Was wondering whether or not I should live with a friend in their house or to stay in accommodation. So far everyone has old me to pick an undergraduate-majority LSE hall to make it easier to socialize. I'm also a super shy person so of course I want to be in a position where it will be easier to make friends. I think in terms of socializing definitely pick the halls. I'm picking Rosebery but I'm also worried that I may not enjoy it there

omg i understand - im gonna pick roseberry too! I am worried about making friends and socialising because im quite shy, and ive also been told that living in LSE halls will be better to socialise. I was going to pick international hall, but think it because its so big it might be hard to make friends and there probably won't be many LSE students as LSE is small.
im worried i wont enjoy it either but everyone tells me its what you make of it - thats kinda hard for me as i dont particularly enjoy socialising! but hopefully everything will work out! im sure it will :wink: what course are you doing?
