Circling back around to student accommodation, a great way to meet new people is by choosing an accommodation with great social communal areas. As I said before, I’m currently staying in Provincial House which comprises of stunning flats, a cinema, a gym and a great common room.
The cinema is kitted out with a projector, over twenty bean-bag cinema chairs and a widescreen. There are often people watching films in there, which you are free to join in with. Otherwise, you could pop a notice on the notice board of a film you’re planning on showing and invite people to come along!
The gym is spacious and fully kitted out with multiple machines, weights, music, aircon and a TV. You could ask someone already in the gym if they can spot weights for you, help you count reps, etc. It’s a great way to make new friends to motivate you to exercise!
The common room has a huge TV, multiple sofas/chairs, lounging areas, desk space and even a ping-pong table! There is often a mixture of people watching TV, studying, pre-drinking, chatting
