You’ve only lived in an all girls house if you relate to at least 41/49 of these things

8. There’s about five different half used micellar water bottles on the shelf

An all girls uni house is unlike any other. When you first sign the contract you have visions of a perfectly pristine house with cocktails every night and fit boys coming over to keep you company. In reality there is hair everywhere, everyone talks about going to the loo and many tears are wasted over sub-standard rugby boys.

This unique charm of an all girls uni house can be summed up in about 49 things. They are the essentials of what it’s like to live in an all girls house. The fridge contains oat milk, £5 rosé wine and emergency cranberry juice for when someone gets a UTI. The house is covered in fairy lights, vines and some form of boob decorations. And at least once a day the delivery man (who you’re on first name bases with) will drop off another ASOS package.

Girls will say multiple times a day they’re done with him (they never are), how stressed out they are and ask who wants to watch The Chase with a cup of tea.
