Should you stay living at home for university? Yes

Every year the halls of residence at every university are full to the brim with wide-eyed freshers looking for a good time. But what about those who live at home? All too often a ‘which accommodation did you choose?’ followed by a ‘oh I didn’t choose any, I still live with my parents,’ is met with an awkward silence or an ‘oh.’ In reality though, choosing to live at home versus living away in student accommodation doesn’t mean you have any more or less fun. Granted, sometimes students who live at home can become detached from the social side of University as it’s a bit more of a drag going out partying when you don’t live within stumbling distance.

But none of this makes a dent in the benefits of living at home.
