A cup of tea solves (nearly) everything
Cook a meal
Cooking for each other could be something you all do on a regular basis, or it could just be offering up a bowl of pasta when you’ve made too much. Even if you don’t cook for someone and don’t eat the same thing, make time to catch up over a meal every now and then. You can chat about anything you like, but it really does help to bring you closer to your flatmates and it’s a great way to get to know each other outside of the usual fast-paced buzz. Even if they don’t take you up, the invitation can really make someone’s day! Sharing is caring, right?
Leave a nice surprise
Uni is stressful and can be intense, so why not leave sweet surprises in your communal areas? This could be anything from some chocolates on the kitchen table to an encouraging note on the fridge. That way, even if you don’t run in to them face to face, you’re still spreading the good vibes!
Spend a night in together
It’s up to you guys what you choose to do, but there’s something to suit everyone! You could try a movie and popcorn night, order in a takeaway together, do a quiz, the sky is the limit! Make a night of it and spend it together. There’s no point in everybody moping around in their rooms wishing they were doing something better!
