Series 1 follows a group of six students about to embark on the most exciting period of their lives thus far- university. Away from home for the first time, on the brink of adult life, they are about to discover who they really are. From the moment they ship up as freshers at their shared house, their lives are destined to collide, overlap and run the whole gamut of appalling behaviour and terrible errors of judgement.
JP (Jack Whitehall), public school boy with good teeth and an inflated sense of entitlement; Kingsley (Joe Thomas), charming, loveable and crushingly insecure; Josie (Kimberley Nixon), overly enthusiastic, determined to experience new things, however bad they are for you. Then there s socially awkward and know-it-all Howard (Greg McHugh); straight talking, hard-living Vod (Zawe Ashton); and finally Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie), desperate to be cool and terrified of being boring.
Series 2 sees JP (Jack Whitehall), Kingsley (Joe Thomas), Josie (Kimberley Nixon), Howard (Greg McHugh), Vod (Zawe Ashton) and Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie) return to Manchester Medlock University for a new term. As they continue to face the challenges of student life, they welcome a new flatmate, a Dutch woman called Sabine (Jelka van Houten).
Series 3 sees JP (Jack Whitehall), Kingsley (Joe Thomas), Howard (Greg McHugh), Vod (Zawe Ashton) and Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie) return to Manchester Medlock University for their second year. As they continue to face the challenges of student life, they meet new fresher Candice (Faye Marsay). Meanwhile, Josie (Kimberley Nixon) has moved back to Southampton to take a zoology course.
Series 4 sees the 'finals countdown' on and the end of university life drawing ever closer. JP s worries about his future following a visit from his brother, Vod (Zawe Ashton) is fixed in the present as she grapples with debt. Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie) is Student Union President and busy planning her legacy, whilst Kinglsey (Joe Thomas) finds himself in an unconventional relationship. Josie is still languishing in second year and facing up to the prospect of a final twelve months in Manchester without her delightfully odd housemates. Howard (Greg McHugh), who had been on course for a first class degree, gets some unexpected news which sends him spiralling.
Thrown together as housemates they are on the brink of adult life and about to discover who they really are.
