Should I stay or should I go now?

I'm starting university next year, and I'm not sure whether I should move out and find my own place or live at home for a couple years. My folks want me to stay at home, and I'm not really sure how I feel. Thoughts?

How close do you live to your university?

Obviously, that makes a huge difference. If you're going to be spending a huge amount of time commuting, it's not worth the cost savings.

However, if you live five minutes down the road... That's a bit of a different story.

Continuing on what the previous post said, it also depends on your spendable money. How much money are you willing to spend? Also, if you're mentally and physically stable to live away from family. You've got to be able to take care of yourself without having someone check up on you all the time.
