It would be difficult to have it both ways.

Uni parties are a big part of university culture, that's a lot of people's sole reason to go. But not everyone is up to partying all night. I can party at most 6 hours at a time and I need breaks every 2 hours. Get sound reduction fitted (if possible) onto the walls of your room or get noise-canceling headphones and play tunes, an audio book, or anything you like. Go to bed ASAP to avoid most of the carnage.

You absolutely will make friends! My housemate is a Muslim and we are in a fairly large friendship group! Plus there’s globe cafe (where you can meet people from round the world) and societies where you can meet people. There’s also the res x common room (can’t remember what the specific rooms called) that is open 6-10pm every day and has crafts and movies and stuff where you can meet people! I didn’t get the choice between types of accomodation because of my term dates and whilst some can be bad generally it’ll only be a few nights over the heat that are really noisy after the first few weeks it settles. No one threw up in the corridor

Edit- I realise that I didn’t soecify that I am at Nottingham uni!

All universities will be the same really. Just join the islamic society at the freshers fair and you will make loads of nice friends that are on the same wavelength as you

when did you apply, i applied in about late november and got my offer in jan so it took about 1-2 months for me to get mine, also i think different departments give offers at different times so i wouldnt worry if u still havent got one x

Hard to say for you as I started in covid so it took like 6 months because we couldn’t mingle but I’d say as soon as 2nd year happened I made friends in a couple of weeks you just need to talk to as many people as possible who can introduce you to people to make friends! That’s why societies are good!
