Living with Students in the UK


Come vivono gli studenti nel Regno Unito? La vita universitaria è simile un po' in tutti i Paesi: spesso vivono in uno studentato all'interno del campus dove condividono gli spazi comuni. Ecco qualche consiglio pratico per sopravvivere durante gli anni di università.

If you are planning to study at a university in the UK, one of the most important things to know is how to make friends with the other students. In your first year you’ll probably be in student halls on campus, which means sharing communal spaces like kitchens or even bathrooms.

Living with other students can be fun and is the best way to meet people. Some students shop together so they can take advantage of discounts on larger quantities. Obviously not all students are good flatmates. If you have a communal bathroom, keep your toiletries in your bedroom or they’ll be gone in a week. Similarly, if your food keeps disappearing from the communal fridge in the kitchen, a mini fridge for your room can be a great investment.

Most universities organise an activities fair at the beginning of term so that students can find out about the clubs, organisations and sports teams on offer to them.

This is a great way to get involved in the various societies and activities. But beware! Don't sign up for every one that looks interesting, o r you’ll be bombarded with emails all year.
