Calling all students, if you’re trapped in your flat for Halloween, you can still have a big night. Make the most of the bonding time with your new housemates and create the ultimate Halloween in isolation.

You might not be able to go on a fancy dress bar crawl, but you can 100% make the most out of spooky season. Take a look at our top ways to celebrate October 31st.


Halloween in isolation with your housemates

  1. Scary movie marathon
  2. Drinking games
  3. Fancy dress theme
  4. Halloween bake off
  5. Pumpkin carving

1. Scary movie marathon

Nothing says Halloween like a fright fest of horror movies. Line your Netflix list up, grab some popcorn and find a pillow to hide behind. Scary movies might not be your thing, so take a look at our list of Halloween films ranked from ‘not-so-scary’ to ‘truly terrifying’.

2. Halloween-themed drinking games

Try alcoholic apple bobbing, with a bucket of booze and shot forfeits. You could also create ‘trick or treat shots’, by filling some cups with water and others with vodka. For more ideas, click here.

3. Create a fancy dress theme

Choose a word or a letter for your theme and host a fancy dress competition. If you are feeling brave, you can even pick names out of a hat and buy mystery costumes for your housemates.

4. Halloween bake off

Everyone loves cakes and treats, so why not create a halloween theme and challenge your housemates to creepy bake off. We are thinking ghost marshmallows, pumpkin cookies and eyeball cake pops. You could even go the whole way and do a spooky-themed Come Dine With Me.

5. Pumpkin carving

This might be a little more traditional, but it doesn’t make it any less fun. If your pumpkin carving always sucks, try using a pumpkin template
