Halls or commute? Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I’ve planned on commuting to university because I have an ongoing illness (chronic so isn’t going to get better) but I’m not sure if I can use public transport in my condition and I can’t drive. But I rely heavily on my mum so the idea of living in halls scares me too :/ what should I do??
You can get support from the University that you will never get from any employer, nor social services (in the time available). So if you have any aspirations to live independently, get talking to the University Disability Service asap about accommodation.
Commuting pretty much cuts out everything but the lecture side of University and makes it a much less valuable experience. Especially so if you have to be reliant on public transport.
