How to Get to Know Your Flatmatesby Newcastle University
Living with flatmates is a new experience for most at university. But those you live with, may just become some of the most important people in your university journey! Here's Combined Honours student, Caitilin's, 5 top-tips on how you can get to know them.
1. Eat Together
Whether it’s a ready meal, end of term Christmas dinner or chips after a night out, it’s always nicer to eat with friends rather than alone. Sharing meals also saves money, and saved me from having to eat the same few meals I can actually cook every week.
2. Stay In
Sometimes it’s nice to stay in and relax. After a long day of lectures or a big essay hand-in, I love getting together with my flatmates for takeout and a film. My top tip: head to the supermarket around 8pm for discounted bakery products.
3. Trips Away
4. Work Together
This isn’t the most fun part of having roommates but I think it deserves a mention. I probably wouldn’t have made it through exams without late night revision sessions with my roommates, them quizzing me on key dates in Japanese history and getting out of the house together when revision just got too much.
