Top 5 Reasons To Live At Home In College

University will be a time filled with new adventures and also a lot of stress. You shouldn’t have to worry about where you’re going to sleep at night. Live at home while you study, and reap the benefits of saving money, enjoying home-cooked meals and more!

1. Save Money 

College is expensive and can leave you in a lot of student debt once your four years are up. Between courses, textbooks, and supplies your credit card bill is going to be crazy as it is. Don’t add a rent check on top of it all. 

The average cost of renting a dorm room is $10,000 a year. Over four years your total could add up to $40,000! That’s the same price as a new car! Girl, that is the same price as 3 new cars!

Don’t waste your money renting a small dorm room that is cramped and smells like feet. Enjoy living in a beautiful home that you don’t have to pay for. Meanwhile, you can spend that extra cash on a new bag that looks great and fits all your heavy texts books!

College is going to be filled with new experiences. Don't start the most important four years of your life worried about student housing rent and annoying roommates. Live at home and enjoy quality time with your family and home cooked meals.

2. Home-Cooked Meals 

If I’m being honest, I spent most of my university years living off of coffee and nacho chips. Not healthy at all. At the end of most days, I would hit a wall and feel tired. I wasn’t giving my body what it needed to be healthy and have energy.

Going home for family dinner was always the highlight of the week, and it wasn’t just because my mother is an incredible cook.

Getting to eat a hot meal on a real plate, was a luxury I didn’t realize I missed. Living at home allows you to have real food giving your body the energy and strength it needs to get through any study session!

3. Annoying Roommates 

Yes, if you have siblings you will technically always have roommates. But a university roommate is not one you can throw out of your room when they are getting into your space. 

Roommates are assigned at random and you may not love the person you are forced to live with. Whether they’re a clean freak or a slob there could be some tension in your living situation. College shouldn’t be about fighting with your roommate. So skip the drama and focus on what’s important!

4. Uncomfortable Co-Ed Showers 

The movies didn’t lie, co-ed showers are a thing and they are just as uncomfortable as they look. 

Sharing a bathroom with one roommate can be difficult, now imagine you have to share a bathroom with a whole floor worth of people. No sink space, you need to wear shower shoes and you might lose your shower caddy.

5. Family Time

Eventually, you’re going to leave the nest for good and you won’t get to see your family every day. Family dinners will become once a week and you’ll mostly talk to your mom over the phone.

Leaving high school forces you to say goodbye to a lot of things, but your family shouldn’t be one of them. Start college off the right foot, with a hug from your mom and a smile from your dad. 

You’ll never get that time back, so treasure it now!
