Living at Home

Increasingly, more and more students are making the decision to study locally and commute onto campus each day from their family home. Some students will be commuting to university by choice, others because of family responsibilities or financial obligations.

Students who live at home and commute to university often fear that they will miss out on campus life and not feel part of the university community.  In fact, with the exception of sleeping in University accommodation, there is little difference between a student who commutes and any other student.
