Homesickness is extremely common in students, especially in the first year. Once all the excitement of Freshers has died down.
You may start off by thinking that living alone with nobody nagging you to clean your room or eat your greens is THE BEST THING EVER, and for a short time, it can be but homesickness can hit hard.
Try and avoid or at least lessen these feeling with our helpful tips…
– Bring personal belongings from home. Still got that bear from when you were born? Bring him along, nobody is going to judge.
– When your parents are ready to leave, say goodbye properly. I know, it may be super embarrassing but you might regret shoving them off so abruptly. Give them a big squeeze, you may need it.
– Now is not the time to be shy. Get out there and get involved, say hello to everybody you pass and in no time you will have met your Uni besties. Don’t worry about ‘fitting in’ either. You will miss your friends from home and no you may not meet anybody like them but why would you want to?
– Keep in regular contact with your loved ones back home. Whatsapp is a great free way to stay in touch and means you can get all the gossip in one big group message.

For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
