    These are really great tips for those starting uni! I love that you included sorting out a bin schedule, it’s so important when living with others to sort out chores before it gets too far. Great post!

    I love this. Especially about getting home sick. I always thought when I left home for uni, I’d have the best time and wouldn’t wanna go home because I’m an “adult” but accepting that home will always be home and that it’s okay to go home, rest & spend time with family.

    Amazing post & congrats on the new blog!

    Hi Rose,

    Thanks for your post. It’s been many years since my Freshers Week but this brought it all back.

    I well remember the fire alarms. I was on the 14th floor and not able to use the lifts! Not fun! 🙂

    And you are quite right about making friends. On the first day that I arrived, a second-year student who was visiting a friend said – don’t obsess over making friends, by the time that you get halfway through the term you will probably hate a good number of your flatmates! And he was right. Living in close proximity to people who have undesirable habits really grates after a while 😉

    Good luck with your studies. Remember to enjoy yourself – it’s as much about the experience as it is the qualification.
