    I've got an unconditional offer for Lincoln to study in September, but i am unsure whether to commute or move away from home. If i move away my maintenance loan won't cover my accommodation however, if i commute it is an hour drive or 50 minute train ride and it will work out a lot more cheaper. Im really unsure what to do as I've seen a lot of people say you miss out of the social aspect but i need to make up my mind as I've got to apply for my student finance. Any advice?

    Where will you be commuting from? I'm going to be commuting from Boston.

    If you drive every day then you can still go out in the evenings with friends and travel up at the weekends if there's stuff on. I suppose it depends on how involved you want to be with student life? Howabout commuting this year and then if you feel you're missing out find accomodation in Lincoln next year?
