Choose money or friends?

I'm a 1st year university student and even though I'm only half way through the year, second year accommodation arrangements have come up.

So here are my two options:

1: Become a university warden - I get paid nearly double what I'd make in a year just to live at university and help residents with any issue during set times. I'd get my own room and be paid 133% more than I'd make, it would mean I'd never have to budget again in my student life. I'd also mean that as a medical student, I'd never get anyone moaning about early morning rises for my medical placements from housemates since I have my own room.

2. Live with 3 friends - BIG ISSUE... already agreed to live with them and signed an agreement for the house. If I became a warden, it could mess up their rent and really piss them off. If I stayed though, I'd mean I'd have to continue to budget to stay afloat and deal half the year with them complaining about my alarm clock waking them up.

So basically, do I anger friends and secure my finances... Or continue to budget for all my study but be on good terms with friends I probably will never meet after university?

I'd go with money with this one as long as it didn't really fuck them over. If it ended up that they couldn't pay the bills that would be too much. But if just meant they had to go out less or live with someone they don't know as well it's fine. Maybe you could offer to pay your portion of the first month or two of rent until they find another person to replace you since you'd be making more money.
