17 Unavoidable Problems You Face If You’re a Student Living at Home

Living at home while you’re at university undoubtedly has its benefits. It also has its struggles, too.

1. Always being asked which accommodation you live in by someone who is “so happy to be away from home”.

2. And never managing to not sound awkward when you reveal that you’re one of those people still at home.

9. But also not wanting to give up all your home comforts.

12. Leaving something at home and being unable to just get a flatmate to bring it in for you because you don’t have any.

13. Having everyone assume you are an expert on everything about the location of your university.

14. Or that the decision to stay at home must not have been your own.

Because no one would choose to stay at home for themselves, right?

15. Worrying that you’re not getting the most out of being a student because you’re living at home.

16. And wishing you didn’t have to involve your parents in your student life so much.

17. But also knowing that you would hate having to deal with the responsibilities you can avoid while you’re still there.
