The move in was made easy by the older year student volunteers helping out. I moved into halls shared by 14 great people, and the events allowed us to click instantly and kept us so busy that people had no time to stop and feel homesick. Just make sure you get stuck in, being sociable from the start. I saw it became more difficult for people who waited a couple of nights, as friendships had already been made. They still managed in the long run though, it just required more effort. Remember to enjoy your first year; it's not too serious, but the later years are.
