    I'm pretty sure I'm going to a uni close to where I live (I live in central London and want to study biomed and the unis in London are fantastic for that) so I have to face the problem of staying at home and missing out on student life or having the life and getting in loads of (quite frankly) unnecessary debt. I was thinking of just moving out for my first year then going home after?

    Did you find that living in halls for your first year meant you made loads of friends? Do you think I would be missing out if I stayed home?

    Thank you!

    You'd meet a lot of people through halls, but even if you lived at home it wouldn't mean you wouldn't have a social life. You'd just have to make sure you meet people other ways, ie at the union or in lectures etc. But just be aware that certain London universities don't guarantee/offer accommodation to applicants who already live in London so depending on where you apply, halls might not even be an option for you.

    move out. living away from your parents is definitely a must in my books.

    basically it gives you much more freedom and independence which helps you grow up. and in my opinion thats one of the main reasons to go to university.

    It's what you make of it really. If you think you won't be able to make friends if you're not living with them, then move out.
