So, you’re sharing a house with other human beings? A bunch of human beings who aren’t your family. Follow our top tips to help you win at living in a shared house.
Broadband and WiFi are pretty much everywhere – at uni, in McDonalds, in Starbucks, and even in bars and pubs. Whether you’re just about to move out of your parents’ house or halls, setting up the internet in your new gaff is a necessary step for any student.
