    Really its down to personal preference- what you enjoy and what kind of university life you want. If you want the quiet life/ and or just concentrate on studies then home may be best, however if you want to go on nights out and more generally play a really active part in campus life then it is easier if you move away.

    General pros & cons of living at home:

    Pros
    -Save money
    -Generally a lot quieter and cleaner
    -Might not have to worry about the looking after youself side of things so much

    Cons
    -Don't have that ready made group of potential friends waiting for you like you would in halls.
    -Have to travel further to get to uni.
    -If late nights out, especially clubbing, is your thing, have to consider how would you get home late (uni nights out tend to be mid week so night tube wouldnt help) and if your parents would mind you coming home late.

    Hope that helps. I moved out of London for uni having previously only lived in London and I didn't regret it at all.
