    Want to move out because I don't want to rely on my parents anymore, want to be independent, I don't like any of the unis in my cities and experience uni life full on.

    finally someones whos logical and realistic
    You asked the question, people have given you answers. Don't start acting like a superior ******* just because the majority appear to have a different view on life to you.

    University is also about becoming independent and becoming more of an adult and so this is a reason why people move away

    Lol most people were disagreeing with points of view, so suddenly I can't agree with someone who has the same mind frame
    Okay then

    I think it's more practical than having to travel 100 miles for a lecture

    I think the stress of commuting 90mins+ to my nearest uni (coincidentally the commute to my actual uni would theoretically be around 1hr 45) would outweigh the initial stress of living in halls...
    Besides I already have to pay rent, buy around 70% of my own food (barring eggs/frozen food/heavy items I can't really carry home myself), and iron my own clothes, so it's not even like I enjoy most of the benefits you evidentally get...

    You said "finally someone whos logical and realistic". A bit rude towards the people that will move out don't you think?

    Excuse me this was you reply to the person who sided with you "Finally someones whos logical and realistic"

    What you are saying is that everyone else is illogical and unrealistic when really you know nothing about their situations and circumstances. Just that they'd rather be away from home.

    Wanting to get away from annoying, controlling parents.
    Yep! Even if Brunel University 15 minutes away (not that it's my top choice)

    Independence, living close to friends, professors are accessible, no unis are close and some unis are absolutely beautiful visually.

    At home you have free accomodation, free food, someone to iron your clothes, you don't have to buy cooking utensils and you won't commute back and forth
    The main reason is that the uni they want to go to is too far away.
    Theres also the indepenacne etc.

    To be able to get away from parents who wouldn't give you any freedom if you commuted from home, plus unis at home doesn't necessarily mean that they are good for what you want to do.

    Firstly it's spelled accommodation.

    Also, most people would have to pay their way if they lived at home whether it be rent or food. They also tend to need to do some housework like ironing cooking or hoovering.

    "you won't commute back and forth"

    In fact it's the opposite really. If I was living at home I would have to commute an hour and a half to get to university each day and some days I only have an hour long seminar/lecture. Even if I went to the closest university (which doesn't do anything similar to my course except for postgraduates) it would still be an hour there and an hour back. At the accommodation I'm staying at is only a 10-15 minute walk away from the university. I'll take a short walk twice a day rather than an hour and a half drive each way.

    You also get a higher loan if you stay in accommodation to help balance the costs. Although accommodation may be an extra expense not paid when you're at home but you've got to budget on commuting to the university.

    It also allows you to be more independent like you will be when you leave home so get's you ready for life as well as giving you more time to socialise without parents getting in the way.

    The one in picking, hopefully for next year, is only 30 minutes away, but at least I'm still away from home.
