16 Things You Know To Be True If You Live In a Quiet Flat at Uni

Yes, quiet uni flats do exist, and if you’ve lived in one you’ll know the following things to be true.

1. It’s always so… well, quiet.

There comes a point when you genuinely start to worry about everyone’s well being.

2. But at least this means you actually get some decent sleep.

3. And it really is possible to work in the flat.

Hallelujah.

4. That glimmer of hope when you see the kitchen light on.

Could it be company? Friendship? A game of cards? Nope they just left the light on. Sigh.

5. Or hear some keys rattling in the door.

Another human? What is this sorcery?

6. You end up knowing way too much about their toilet habits.

In a flat that’s so deadly silent, the only sign that people are present is often the sound of them peeing – at least it means you learn to distinguish who’s who!

7. And it’s always awkward when you bump into someone who’s also about to go for a shower.

No, after you, ahem, I insist!

8. Or when there’s another fire drill and you don’t know what to talk about.

9. Probably because you mostly communicate through passive-aggressive sticky notes.

They can’t even be bothered to leave their rooms to have an argument with you. Fair play.

10. But ironically have a ridiculously lit group chat.

Somehow the meme-game is ridiculously strong as you all sit in your separate locked rooms next to each other.

11. Meal times are always a solitary occasion. 

Not quite how you imagined uni would be.

12. And seeing them in public is always… weird.

Do you say hi? Is ignoring them rude? Start a conversation about the dodgy microwave?

13. Being in absolute awe when you hear about their private lives from their mates.

It’s always the quiet scientist with the raunchiest Instagram from copious nights out. Classic.

14. How weird it is when you actually do spend time together.

It’s a beautiful paradox in which you ask how they are whilst they are naked in exception to a vomit-stained dressing gown.

15. The jealousy you feel when you go to your mate’s flat where everyone is sociable.

16. And the worry that you’ve become far too used to living in relatively undisturbed peace.

What are you going to do when you move out? How are you going to cope?
