    I come home from Uni about ever 2-3 wks at weekends. Only live 90 mins away. Usually this is for friends and family birthdays. In my third year now and always feel like I'm being too nice and should probably let go a bit...how often does everyone go home?

    In first year I'd go every 5-6 weeks. But then in second year not so much. I held off going home because I had an interview for something and the date wasn't ocnfirmed so I only ended up going home once in the first semester before going home for Christmas. This is all with about a journey time of 3 hours door to door. I feel sorry for international students :hide:

    Hello ,

    In my First Year I went home at least twice a month - in Second Year, probably around one a month and then now in Third Year - just whenever I have the time or my family come to visit me which makes it easier for me!

    Just depends on what's going on!

    Interesting to see what people do differently! I fee like such a baby going home every few weeks, but I feel like it gives me a good balance- most weekends at Uni I don't tend to do much anyway, so when I come home I get food and entertainment for free haha!

    In my first year I went home every other month. In my 3rd/4th year I only went home during vacations.

    In First year I only went home in the holidays, and I live about 2 hours away from home. So far in my second year, I'm going home about once a month.

    Only at the beginning and end of term, and to be honest that's more often than I should be going home as a 3rd/4th year, if I had a job here I would probably only go back at Christmas and one other week each year.

    It's funny because , I thought people would only go home at the end of the terms then go back.

    I moved into my halls of residence on the 17th of September and planning to visit home for the first time around the 15th of November (my birthday). I wanted some time to get settled in and also it costs and arm and a leg to go home. I would imagine after my birthday, I'll go home for Christmas and then probably visit again around March time. I'm quite independent, talk to parents occasionally on Facebook, don't really get home sick I quite enjoy being an "adult".

    My eldest just went off to uni, and he'll be back at Christmas. His life has moved on from reciprocated family dependency.

    I've only been at uni for just over 2 weeks, but I'm not planning on coming home until Christmas.

    My parents' house is 30 miles away from the university.
