Everyone moving into student accommodation is feeling the exact same way as you, even if they don’t show it. Everyone is feeling nervous about being in a new place with new people who they don’t know. And that is okay! It’s normal to feel apprehensive about the unknown. But think of it as an adventure you’re going on, and remember how fun it’s going to be.

 

Make your room homely

If your student room feels like home, it will make settling in that much easier. Bring some things from home that you love, get some nice bedding, a snuggly blanket – whatever it is that will make your student accommodation feel like home, even if it is only temporary.

 

Talk to people in your halls or house

If you get to know the people you’re living with, you’ll soon make friends with them, and that will make living in your student accommodation much more enjoyable. Hang out in the kitchen, or leave your door open, and make sure you say hi!

 

 

We hope you’re looking forward to starting uni!
