Lets get right into it! This week's focus is accommodation, specifically that big decision whether to live on campus or stay at home and commute.

1. Living On Campus

Deciding to live at home or commute to university has its own pros and cons. Just remember that either way its okay. Do what you feel is best for you.


  • Closer to university so you get to sleep in.
  • If you forget something you can just pop back into your room.
  • Get to meet a lot more people and a lot quicker living on campus. This is because you're on campus 24/7 so you have more chances to meet people and get to talk to them for longer.
  • Your own space.
  • More freedom to do things your own way.


  • Home sickness.
  • Needing to take up more responsibilities such as doing the groceries, laundry, cooking and so on. (This is a pro too since its life skills you're learning!)
  • Can be costly as you have to pay for rent, food, and any extra expenses.

2. Stay At Home

Home sweet home.


  • Comfort. You know the saying: "There's no place like home."
  • Don't have to pay for rent or your food at home.
  • Don't have to share a space with strangers (this could be a pro or con).
  • You have a clear line between school and home which for many is useful.


  • Depending how far you live from your university, travel expenses may be costly.
  • Having to wake up earlier to get to classes on time or beat the traffic.
  • Not being able to stay out on campus as late as you want to due to having to commute home.

Short and simple. Hope you're all having a good week!
