Living At McMaster

Living at Home and Commuting

Parents 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 much 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 university education, so adjusting to your university life will take time, effort and patience on everyone’s part. Be willing to compromise.
