Living At McMaster

Living at Home and Commuting

Parents will sometimes have trouble accepting that their “little kids” are growing up.  If you’re living with your family, a good relationship with your parents will make your time at McMaster a lot more enjoyable.

University is a time of personal growth and for trying new things.  Set up a meeting with your family to calmly discuss curfews, privacy and other house rules.

Not everyone in your family may understand the pressures and demands of a university education, so adjusting to your life at university will take some time, effort and patience on everyone’s part. Be willing to compromise.
