The time has come for you to fly the nest. Being away from the familiarities of our support and surroundings of home can leave us feeling extremely daunted. Tasks we would normally take for granted and have probably done before without giving it a second thought may now feel scary and might not just come so easily. It can be a stressful time many and its sensible to expect up’s AND down’s.
Put yourself out there especially on your moving in day/first few days. Chat with the people also moving into your halls and surrounding buildings. You will meet some of your best mates during University, go get them.
Before even starting the year you could research which free socials and society’s your University offers. You could try a few out and see which suits you best. It’s a great way to meet people with the same interests as you.
Before you even get there, organise your uni life. Everything you need for your room/halls should be packed and ready to go. The books and equipment you need for your course should either be bought or dually noted ready to hire from the library as soon as you start.
It may also be worth noting and I’m sure you wont want to hear this but if you get your head down and get your work done as it comes in, you will feel so much more organised and free. No need for deadline stress then.
Take Care Of Yourself
Exercising, eating healthily and caring for yourself not only benefits your body but also your mental health.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
