    I don't pay anything, my parents have said they'll never charge me. They have enough money and thus contributing £50 a week or whatever would be negligible and pointless.

    I don't. And I'm probably the worst child to have living with you. I bet the pray every night my UCAS is successful this year.

      I started when I turned 19. Was only £80 a month and I was earning £430 then so I was lucky. Since going to uni I don't. Might in the summer for a bit though. Not fair that she gets no income for me and has to feed me for 4/5 months.

      I don't. I am 18 and doing an extra year of 6th form. I don't have a job or get EMA. If I get a job I will offer my Mum money but she usually doesn't take it anyway.

      My Brother stayed at home for his first year of Uni and he didn't pay any rent so my Mum has said she wouldn't take any off me because she didn't take any off him.

      I'm 17 and I give my parents £20 a month. I force my parents to take it as they don't want anything.

      I used to when I lived at home, I think it was £120 a month or something like that. I would expect my kids to pay me rent unless they were still in education or not working.

      Nope. I only live at home over Uni holidays and have never been able to find a job. If I did then I would contribute something, though my dad would not ask for it. I'm 20.

      Nope. My parents really don't need it, whereas I'm a perpetually overdrawn student. I'm 21, 22 in less than two weeks

      I don't, but only because I'm at uni so I'm only back for so many weeks a year. Mum is willing to put me up for that long.

      Both my brothers do though, because they still live at home and are 23 and 24.

      No. I'd guess I probably would if I move back home after uni but I don't think that's going to happen.

      Not while I'm still in education. If I needed to live here for a significant amount of time when I'm not still at uni, then I would. Well, 'upkeep'... money towards food and bills, but I wouldn't expect my parents to want money from me in order to earn a profit.
