Student life, in partnership with UEA
I would 100% recommend moving out for uni!
I feel like it is such a good experience, you gain so much more independence and life skills than you might living at home.
You'll be cleaning more, cooking, doing your own washing etc. Just becoming a more responsible person in general
As well as learning how to manage your money and spend it effectively - such as budgeting for food shops, nights out etc
I also feel you have a lot more freedom to do what you want, as you're living in your own place and you don't need to ask permission to go and do something
Living at uni is such a great experience, and you get to live in a part of the country you may not have done before
I hope this helps!

I’m a student at Lancaster University and I moved out despite my hometown only being an hour or so away. I think it’s a good experience for students to move out at least in there first year so you get to experience living on your own, taking care of yourself and student life. But I also know people who have commuted and still got involved with everything at uni so you could also do things this way and saved money and stuff. So there are definitely benefits to both sides !
