I will be honest with you commuting to university will probably feel a lot like attending sixth form/ college but that doesn't mean that you can't still have a wonderful university experience. 

Because you are not on campus 24/7 to hear what is going on, you may have to make a slightly bigger effort to participate in the activities going on at, but that doesn't mean you have to have a terrible time. Complaining about the fact you can't be like everyone living in halls won't change the situation, so instead accept what you have and make use of it. Find a way to get involved with activities in uni, that way you won't feel like you are missing out on what other students may have going on.

If you missed your fresher's fair it's still not too late to join a society. There may even be a "Commuter Society". If there isn't and it is something you might be interested in, start that society yourself and find others that will be willing to going too. If there is a society you are interested in joining, send them an email/ message on social media (this info should be on your uni website) and let them know you are interested in becoming part of the team, if they don't reply hop down to your student union or reception and let them know your requests.

These are a few ideas of how to utilise and make the most of your time at university: 

- Apply for a job on campus
- Become a student ambassador 
- Be a course representative 
- Join a society / sporting club 
- Stay up to date with events and activities with the university online
