    When I get older, I want to go to university but I want to have my own place at the university to properly feel like I'm living the life. But, the thing is, the university I want to go to is a less than 10mins drive from my house so it's not far at all. So should I get a place at university or should I just save the money and stay living at my house?

    It is up to you but 10 minutes is nothing, you're better off saving the money and commuting. If you are intent on experiencing student life, you could always stay in halls in the first year but personally I don't see the point because you live so close to the university. You will still be able to have a good student life living at home and since you live really near, you can pretty much go to any event you want.
