Hey im currently a first year living at home- my family had a few tragedies this year and i decided it would be more helpful for them if i stayed at home. I get how you feel because i feel the same way, but i have spoken to 3rd years who lived at home and the feeling left away with time.
Although i am personally considering moving in for my 2nd year

I'm not surprised you feel like you not really part of the university. I mean a lot of students bond because they are away from home for the first time it's common ground. I often say "if you're in halls or accommodation you're at uni if you're living at home you're just going to uni." I know that sounds harsh but that's just how it is I cant imagine not having been in accommodation or a student house. I mean how do you engage in societies and nights out and things don't think you can just out of interest how long is your commute?

As someone who does commute i have personally had no problem attending social events, if i want to drink and cant get a lift late i book a hotel room and stay the night. Uni definitely isn’t just about living in, in fact the majority of people i’ve spoken to who chose to live in feel isolated, alone and nearing depressed. Sometimes its just more about where your values lay. For me uni was never about drinking its about meeting new friends and getting a good degree- both i can do while commuting

Hi,
Going to university can be quite a big adjustment for many people so I'm sure you're not the only one who feels this way. If you feel you would benefit from moving to university accommodation if possible you could look into this. Or you could look into doing this for year two or three and move into a place with the friends you have made rather than moving into student halls in year one.

You could try get involved in the universities clubs and societies and any events that take place to try and feel more involved and part of the universities community.

Hope this helped.
