    How can uni not count? I will be moving out as I will be going about 4 and a half hours away.

    It was a slow transition for me. Over the uni years I went home less and less, until by the time I graduated I never went home. Officially though, I moved out at 22 (i.e. have nothing of mine back at my parents house and don't have a key).
    How did you manage to that? I am going away to university this year and I really don't want to move back home after I graduate (due to personal reasons), but I am worried, because of the recession and the amount of jobs...I don't know if I'd be able to afford it...

    Why doesn't uni count, out of interest? I'm in halls atm and I wouldn't count that, but I'm moving to a studio flat which is going to be my little place. I don't rush back to my parents' house in every break, so I would consider that to be moving out, tbh.
    Same here, I am not at uni yet but when I am I wont be coming back often, and I'd like to never return home when I graduate.

    I am 24 and still live with my parents they pay all my bills food etc I don't have a job. It's kind of embarrassing really.

    Sixteen. I had a job straight out of school and moved into a houseshare which only cost about £250pcm including bills so it wasn't too much of a problem. That is a fairly young age I suppose but things were a bit difficult at my mums at the time.

    I went to uni 05-08 so things were a lot better economically - I had a part time job so staying over the holidays allowed me to have a few extra shifts. I also did some unpaid lab experience over the summer holidays. I was lucky that I could afford to stay over the holidays (although to be completely honest uni towns tend to die when all the students go home over the summer), not really sure how easy it would be these days.
