So I just got an offer for accommodation as I went through clearing. It's a band A shared room which I don't mind. The problem is because I thought I wasn't going to get a room I made another arrangement. I was planning to commute from aldershot which takes 40 minute on train (I don't minf the journey) The problem is that if I choose to commute from aldershot and reject my offer then I save ALOT of money. I need the extra money for accommodation next year and also other expenses. But I also want a room at campus so that I can make friends and have a social life. I am really indecisive please help should I take the room or should I commute ? Also can I still make good friends if I commute ?

PLS HELP URGENT NEED TO REPLY SOON!!!

Hi An.on,

I think the best thing for you to do would be to draw up a Pros/Cons list for each of your options. Pros of living at home may include getting to see your family often, saving money and being close to friends from home. Cons include having to commute, the cost of commuting, and potentially not being able to go to as many social events.

However, just because you live at home doesn't mean you have to miss out! My friend lived at home during his degree, and he was one of the people who was most involved in the extracurricular activities that uni offers! If he fancied coming for a night out with us and didn't want to leave early to catch the first train he'd just bring a sleeping bag and crash in someone's room on campus. You just have to learn to plan your time wisely and bring the things you need with you in case you have a break in between lectures or a while to wait before your club/society meets in the evening.

I hope this helps!

All the best,
Ashley
