I moved into UCL Campbell House West in September 2014 where I was greeted by some shy student volunteers. My flat was very silent and there weren't any organised activities that facilitated socialising. Spontaneous ones involved lots of drinking, which I'm not into. Despite never bonding with my flatmates I enjoyed meeting people on my course, and I didn't mind too much a rather clinical housing experience. I found the accommodation to be dirty, including mice in the kitchen. Coming from a European country I was not used to this. I attended parties every day but I thought they were boring, expensive and unpleasant due to the overly packed clubs. I enjoyed the events run by societies better, such as EFS socials. Overall, I consider freshers a week worth experiencing but the fun part of uni life definitely came after.
