Definitely consider moving into accommodation if your uni is two hours away and you need space from your family, those are probably the two main reasons students do move away from home

It’s a great experience living away from your family but it’s all up to money if you can afford it go for it

one question about uni accomodation - when holidays come around are you allowed to stay or will they kick you out?

That depends on the contract and how many weeks it's for, most will allow you to stay for Christmas/Easter but maybe not summer

Well, it takes approx 1 hour and 45 mins but usually there is traffic so it takes approx 2 hours to get there on time.

the contract is approx 44 or 51 weeks, i rather pick the 51 weeks since it's better that way. plus, it is £4000+, there is a shared kitchen and bathroom which i don't mind.

51 weeks would cover the whole year then

Uni is a great opportunity for us to move away from family and grow as our own people. Go into accommodation and have your own space, it sounds like you need it.

I’d go into uni accommodation. Doing 2 hours there and 2 hours back everyday would be exhausting, plus in the long run possibly more expensive depending on mode of transport. There’s always student loans and part time jobs. But yeah, go learn some life skills!

It is worth the money to move into your own place while at uni.
Either living on campus, an off-campus students only complex or private house-share.
Particularly if you want to experience life as an independent adult and put some distance between yourself & family members.
