How To Survive Your 1st Student Home
It’s the start of the new academic year and universities are filled with puzzled, confused and excited freshers. Students say that studying at university is once in a lifetime experience but don’t let the best years of your life become the worst – there are lots of challenges you have to be prepared to:
- How to not get food poisoning
- How to make sure you get your deposit back
- How to not burn your house down
- How to not miss home
- How to save on your food bills
- How to get on with your housemates
That’s a lot to tackle for a 1st-year student who has just left their parent’s home. Don’t ring the alarm bells yet, we’ve prepared a full checklist – take some time to read it and take notes (you’ll need it). Once you know what to expect from living at your first student home, it’ll be easier to overcome these problems.
Everything mentioned above, from avoiding food poisoning to making sure you don’t burn your student house down, we have it covered in our student guide.
