Homesickness at University

Starting University is a big transition for everyone. It's normal to feel homesick when you come to University, whether you’ve come from the other side of the world or half an hour down the road. Even those who never expected to experience homesickness can find themselves missing home at some point of their University experience.

There are two big changes to adjust to when starting University, leaving familiar people, places and things, and adapting to new ones. These changes can be difficult for most people but can be overwhelming for some. Try and remember that everyone is in the same boat when they start University, it’s always nice to know you are not the only one.
