According to The student housing company, this are some of the problems students face on a daily basis

Under Pressure

Sometimes, university can feel like a delicate balancing act that you can never quite get the hang of. With deadlines to meet, friendships to make, and oh *so many* early morning lectures to get to (why so many, though?), it’s all too easy to get knocked down by a massive cloud of overwhelm.

Starting university can be a stressful experience, no matter your age or the course you’re on. If the pressure is getting to you, don’t be afraid to take a step back and ask for help. Your lecturers, along with your university’s Student Services team, will be able to help you find ways to balance your workload and take the pressure off if things are getting a bit too much for you.

Home Is Where Your Heart Is

One of the most common problems you can face as a student is homesickness. And let’s face it, feeling homesick sucks.

When it comes to feeling homesick, the first few weeks and months at university are the most brutal, but things do get better. As you begin to make friends and get to know your surroundings, you’ll find that your heart aches less for the comforts of home.

Until then, make the most of your university’s free Wi-Fi, and schedule regular video chats and calls with your loved ones back home. You might not be able to be there in person, but sometimes just seeing your best friend’s friendly face can be all the encouragement you need to stay positive and motivated.

Feelings of Isolation

Despite what Hollywood films and glossy course brochures suggest, no-one walks onto a university campus and makes a solid group of friends instantly. It takes time. As a result, feelings of isolation and loneliness amongst students are common, especially during the first few months.

There are many reasons why you might struggle to connect and make friends at university. Perhaps your flatmates have different interests or you’re not comfortable in social situations. Whatever the reason, if you’re finding it hard to make friends, we can promise you this: you’re not the only one.

Give loneliness and isolation the boot by pushing yourself to explore beyond your comfort zone. Get a list of the clubs, sports teams and societies at your university that you’re interested in joining and challenge yourself to attend a meeting.

You Can’t Get No Sleep

Sleep it vanishes without a trace whenever you need it most.

It’s no wonder that university students are constantly sleepless. Often, class schedules are all over the place. Some days lectures start at 8am; other days you don’t need to be in until 4pm. Irregular timetables lead to irregular sleeping patterns. The result? Your body clock goes haywire and you end up working all night and sleeping all day.

Money Worries

Many students find themselves struggling to cover all of their expenses and have to search for part-time jobs to make ends meet. Unfortunately, finding a job that works well around your class schedule isn’t always easy and can feel a little like searching for a needle in a haystack.
