17 Things Every Student Learns Moving Into Their First Uni House

Protect your right to a proportionate amount of toilet roll.

1. This is pretty much the first time in your life you can set ALL of the rules.

2. What this really means is you can host a house party whenever you want to.

3. You'll even have a communal area that isn't a kitchen.

4. Everyone will agree to a cleaning rota.

5. Then everyone will abandon it after just a few days.

6. You'll all have romantic visions about cooking glorious meals for each other.

7. But you end up just cooking for yourself exactly like you did in your first year.

You aren't a proper student unless you've eaten pasta straight out the pan to save on washing up

8. There will be mould, and your landlord will do absolutely nothing about it.

Y'know when you're paying a small fortune to live in a student house and they don't even sort your mould out

9. In fact, your landlord will refuse to fix anything unless your life is in grave danger.

10. Everyone will argue over something as trivial as toilet roll.

11. Because one of your housemates will use a disproportionate amount of it.

12. And you'll revert to desperate measures.

13. All that hair in the bath plug will just stay there.

14. Someone will insist on leaving the heating on even when it's not cold.

15. Having to wake up earlier for lectures because you no longer live on campus is literally the worst.

16. But...after a while you'll start enjoying the solitary walks home from the library at 3am in the morning.

17. Because you'll realise this bunch of oddballs you call housemates will probably be your best friends for life.
