You know university life is about freedom, responsibility, partying, oh and studying of course. There will be all-nighters pulled at the library and lots of coffee involved.
Before you know it, your 3-year stint is up and you are graduating wondering if you really did your best at embracing the uni experience.
Here are a few things you should have known before university…
You WILL Get Freshers Flu
It’s a real thing and there’s absolutely no doubt you will come down with a bought of the dreaded fresher’s flu. As soon as you put a hold on that daily partying that is.
You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everyone
You’ve got years to build up friendships. Don’t feel disheartened if you haven’t found your best bud in the first week. Equally, don’t worry about being friends with every person you have a conversation with.
Not Drinking Is Acceptable Too
Despite the portrayal, not every student wants to drink all day, every day. Never feel pressured to drink if you just don’t want to.
It’s Okay To Be Homesick
Moving away from home, although exciting, will be a dramatic change for you. Feelings of being homesick and lonely can creep in especially once the madness has calmed and you settle into your new life.
Remeber you can call or visit friends and family whenever you like. They will no doubt miss you just as much also.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
