A couple of the universities that I am thinking of applying to are around 1 hour away from where I live, so I can get there by public transport. However, I do not like the idea of having to travel an hour a day, and would rather wake up in a dorm and take a nice refreshing morning walk to where I need to go. Also, if I go to a party which finishes late, I wouldn't want to travel an hour to get back home. I would like to just jump straight into bed.

My parents say it's about it being too expensive, but I know that it is more than that. They are really overprotective. I don't know what to do because I really feel like I'd have trouble making friends and won't get the full uni experience if I live at home.

What should I do?

Do what you want, you are (or soon will be) an adult - unless your parents are paying your fees for you, their opinions should not matter. You need to take control over your life at some point, the sooner you do it, the easier it'll be.
