Fewer distractions Although you may still need to set up some boundaries at home, it’s typically much easier to get work done when you aren’t sharing a room or study hall with others.
Better structure Because you must get up every day and drive to campus, you get in a healthier routine than students who often roll out of bed and bust it to class.
Healthier meals Let’s be honest: sometimes you simply can’t resist the urge to eat pizza in the school cafeteria when it’s available every day. Students who live with their families typically enjoy more nutritious, well-rounded and home-cooked meals.
Save money By avoiding the often-inflated costs of room and board charged by colleges, students save thousands of dollars each year they’re in school.
Family support While it can be difficult to open up to new roommates or classmates about life struggles on campus, students living at home can talk about this things with family members who know them well.
You get to leave Students who feel overwhelmed by school benefit from getting to leave campus and physically/mentally disconnect from their day when they return home.
Four-legged family time Students with pets can’t bring their furry friends to college in most cases, but those living at home know they’ll get a warm greeting upon returning home each day.
No need to move Rather than packing up at the end of each academic year, commuters know they get to stay put and live in the same space each year.
Avoid dorm rules Some schools have rules about curfews, friends visiting, and even whether learners can use candles. Students living at home usually don’t need to abide by the same rules.
Easier to work Students living on campus often find it more difficult to work as they get tied up with other campus-based activities that take up free time. Those who must earn money while in school find it easier to disconnect from campus after classes end and therefore have more time for jobs.
