Planning to Stay on Campus to Study During The Summer? The Pros & Cons
  • Opening Intro -

    You've had a tough year full of studying, exams and more lectures than you can count.

    Now you need to figure out whether or not you should stay during the summer to study on campus or travel back home to visit your friends and family.

    Tough decision...


Luckily, we have compiled a list of Pros and Cons to make the decision to stay on campus or go home easier for you.

The Pros of staying on Campus to Study:

  • You may find it easier to meet people and make new friends because everyone else is in the same situation as you, and hopefully they will be more open to meeting new people too.
  • It can take a lot of time and effort to travel back home and back again after the summer, sometimes it just isn’t worth the hassle.
  • It’s quiet which means you can focus on your studies and really get into the zone without all the usual distractions around you.
  • You will gain more confidence in yourself as you will need to be much more independent on campus compared to being taken care of by your parents.
  • There will be plenty of fun events to keep you busy when you get bored or lonely. Before making a decision, you should ask around and see what’s happening over the summer, so you can make a better decision on whether to stay or go home.

The Cons of staying on Campus to Study:

  • It can become very lonely if you are not someone who is able to be extroverted and go out to meet new people.
  • Staying on campus is not cheap, you’ll need to pay your rent, food and utilities which can be incredibly expensive if you have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
  • You’ll miss out on catching up with your family and friends, which can make you feel really alone and isolated if you are not used to it.
  • You may feel like you haven’t really had a break, and this could lead to you feeling burnt out coming into the new year instead of well rested and ready to go.
  • You may find it harder to find part-time work than you would if you went back to your hometown, where you have connections that could help you out.

No matter what you decide to do, there will be plenty of pros and cons, but if you decide to make the best of the situation, we are sure that you will have an amazing time either on campus or at home.
