20 Things You`ll Only Understand If You`re a Uni Student Who Lives at Home

1. The awkwardness when you get asked by the “so happy to be living in halls” person about which accommodation you live in.

17. There is the inevitability of your fellow students making you think you’re less of an adult.

18. Which then makes you worry that you lack independence and aren’t doing uni life “right”.

You want to know you’re making the most of it.

19. But there will be plenty of friends you make who don’t judge.

It’s less practical to be friends when you aren’t right there on campus or sharing a house with them, but you’re real friends because you make the effort anyway.
