Life at Alphavars
For most freshers, university is their first experience of living away from home. After the warmth and cosiness of home, university accommodation can seem a bit bleak and impersonal. This can lead to feelings of homesickness, so do what you can to make your new room as homely as possible. Before you go up to university, have a think about how you’ll decorate your room to help keep homesickness at bay.
You’ll be in a better position to make friends more easily during Freshers’ Week if your room is equipped to entertain and you’ll also find that adequately kitting out your room will stand you in good stead for your whole university career. During Freshers’ Week, keep your door open and make your room a social hub that passing students want to wander into.
