    Sorry if it's a bit of a personal question.

    I found this charity website (h)http://www.thestandalonepledge.org.u.../22-north-west) that show the data of estranged students within various unis, but there is no data on my own university, Lancaster :rolleyes:. I thought it might be nice to get to know other estranged students like me so that we can help each other out etc.

    what do you mean by estranged
    By "estranged" I basically mean students that have permanently lost contact with their parents or a particular family member. This is a somewhat oversimplified definition, but it does the job. For some, it might mean permanently losing their parents because their parents behaviour endangers them if they stay with their parents. For others, it might be that their parents left their family without saying a word, cutting off all contact. This in turn can be difficult for estranged students as many will have zero financial and emotional support during university, and for most of them, housing during the summer is a huge issue, because unlike most students, they do not have a family home to go to during the holidays.

    Here's some information from the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/20/w...rangement.html
