Would there be any point moving into accommodation in the city where I live? watch


    (Original post by Caledonian)

    I live literally 10 mins away from uni, and I'm moving to halls that are an hour and a half away from the uni, all for the independence + the social side! Too many brothers cramped in my parents house = :sad:
    Fair enough, but I am an only child with a mom and step dad who are actually NEVER in the house I can understand if most of your friends are moving out too, but with me the majority of my friends aren't even going to uni, and the ones that are are staying at home too.

    But what about the new ones you could meet? Cutting off options is, subjectivley, silly imo ^^

    More money to spend isn't entirely fair. You get more loan. Debt however. Is highly accurate.

    Oh noooo if i don't move out i'll have NO friends and will have to spend weekends with my mom....no

    Most of my friends, well my closest friends who I spend the majority of my time with aren't even going to uni and they are ALL in the city I live in. Making new friends is easy for me anyway, seriously moving out in my own city would be pointless to me. But I can understand where you are coming from, I mean I would want to move out if I had no friends back home too

    Yes you will miss out if you don't move out.
    Firstly you may not get to be as independent as you could because you're still at home and after all part and parcel of the Uni experience is starting new things and moving out-how can you do that whilst still living at home (!)

    Also halls and shared accommodation are more sociable so you get to meet more students this way.
