    Currently 24 and have been working for about two months now after finishing university and doing an extra year of studying alongside volunteering and casual work. My Workplace is 30mins away and there's no point in moving out and so I'm just going to continue living at home for a few years and saving up as much as I can. Then I may think about moving out and purchase my own place without renting because I rather see my money being invested in the proper way but that's just me.

    Plus I have a £15k debt with The Student Loans Company which I'm currently paying off and will hopefully do so within the next few years whilst living at home and once that's sorted, then I'll have one less thing to worry about.

    I don't really consider myself to have "moved out" by being at Uni. I still have a load of crap sitting in my dad's house, and I've never had rented accommodation over the summer.
    Hopefully I'll be doing a masters next year, and as they run for a whole year I'll need a year long tenancy agreement. Then I will consider myself to have moved out properly. I will be 21 if all goes to plan!
    If I don't get in/don't get money for a masters my other option is to live at home, get a job and work for a year to save as much money as possible. As much as I love my dad, I would seriously hate to live at home for an entire year! The summer is one thing, but a year, ****. I couldn't deal with not having independence for so long.

    I was 17, why is the youngest age "below 22"?
    The poll clearly doesn't include those who ran away from home.

    Does uni count?

    Because I haven't moved out as such, still have my room at home and go there during holidays. I won't properly move out til I (hopefully) get a job after my degree.

    If I return home after uni then I intend it only to be for as long as it takes for me to find my own place, however I'm a 6 year course so that won't be until I'm 24...

    Lived in Liverpool for my second and third years at Uni (but my primary address was still home), but will officially move out in the new year into my own rented flat, making me 21/22 (depending when I find somewhere)

    I want to go to a uni which is not in London. That way, I wont feel pressured to stay at home. Because if I do, despite being 18/19, I will be expected to return home at a time which suits my parents. I really want independence to be honest. I mean I'll visit the 'rents like every other week whenever possible.

    No his parents quite clearly gave him the cash!
    You're an idiot! Actually our first house cost only £58k and the deposit was paid for out of money my nan left me when she died, so you can **** off.

    Why would I be a troll just because I was sensible enough to appreciate that money was best spent on property rather than pissing it away every weekend?!

    What's the problem with people leaving home at 17? I'll be leaving at 17 for uni (unless I go to Glasgow/Strathclyde, which is not that likely).

    Well I've semi left home for uni, and depending on what job I manage to get post-uni, I don't see myself ever living there 24/7 again...
    This.

    Now I've lived away from home for the last few months, I would really wish the freedom and independence if I moved back home after uni.
