Remember at the start of the summer when you were dying to come home from Uni, see your old school friends, eat all the food in your fridge and sleep in a normal-sized comfortable bed?

But now that you’re home, be honest, you’re missing uni life a little bit. Aren’t you?

Well thankfully there are just a few weeks left until a new academic year begins and to celebrate, we’re taking a look at 25 things you probably missed about uni this summer.

1. Being able to just walk downstairs or across the hall to see your friends.

2. Sharing a single bed with your best friend.

3. And talking until 4 am, telling each other things that you probably shouldn’t say out loud because they are shameful and fairly inappropriate.

4. Waking up after a night out with absolutely no idea where you are or how you got there.

5. Your independence – doing your own food shopping.

6. Waiting until your clothes smell like a hobo’s armpit before washing them.

9. Coming home after a night out and eating a full bag of oven chips and chicken nuggets with your housemates.
