Sheila’s Answer

Hello Vanisha:

There's no right or wrong answer to your question. Some students stay at home for college due to financial reasons, health or medical reasons, etc. If you have the opportunity to stay on campus it would be a great experience for you. In my opinion, when staying on-campus you get connected with college life more easily than being off-campus. Best of luck to you!

Richard’s Answer

In terms of academic and saving money, you certainly can. However, some people prefer not to do so for social reasons, which may be valid depending on your family.
If they are very strict, you may miss out on many events at college, which occur at night. However, you will still be able to have many wonderful experiences if you seek them out. Make friends and invite them to do fun things. Living on campus makes this process much easier, but if you take the initiative, you will still be able to get the same results. Keep an open mind and keep exploring the different opportunities.
It is smart to save money by living at home. Your life will be more difficult if you have debt after graduation.

Britni’s Answer

It is completely up to you. Financially, it may be better to stay at home, but living on campus in a dorm allows you to grow as a person and learn skills. It also allows for the college experience of interacting with others and attending more events that are held on campus. Not to say that you will not be able to participate in these activities if you commute from home, but the access is probably easier if you were to live on campus! Hope this helps.

Tatjana’s Answer

Hi Vanisha,
I strongly recommend moving out from your home and fully live the college experience. A lot about college is maturing into the person you really are and this is best done away from home. Plus you'll make life-long friends that will carry you a long way through life not only for your much needed professional network but also for your personal ups and downs.
And if moving out means you'll have to work next to college, don't be afraid of that. It will help you grow into a well-organized person, improve your life-management skills and it will have the added effect of filling your CV.
I worked all the way through college and medical school, up to 20-30hrs/week and still I had lots of time to study and a lot of fun with my friends including small travels. Choose jobs related to your field of study, this will positively impact your learning and create better earnings as well.
Be daring and enjoy.
Best wishes from Berlin,
Tatjana

Try doing both or two different semesters and see for yourself which works best for you. By staying on campus, you can make lot of friends fast; so try to live on campus during your initial semesters and later when you have established your circle; you can experiment by studying from home.

Sanjana’s Answer

It is completely up to you. Many students wish to live in dorms to be more social, meet new people, and get the "college experience." I would recommend seeing if you could dorm your freshman year of college since it will be a new exposure for all incoming students. If you do not have any financial obligations and liked your freshman year experience living in the dorms, you may continue to do so for other years. Otherwise, you always have the option of commuting. It doesn't hurt to give living on campus a try if you can afford it without too much of a hassle.
