Living at home can be tough, especially if you aren't getting on with the people you live with. It's tempting to want to move out, but living on your own or with strangers has challenges too. Get help or advice if you aren't safe at home.
Renting a home from a private landlord or through an agent could be an option, but there are potential problems which you should be aware of before taking on a tenancy. Know your rights and responsibilities.
Most students who aren’t living at home will either move into housing provided by their college or university or find somewhere to rent privately. Check the college’s website or prospectus for information on the housing options it provides.
Talk to someone if you haven't got anywhere safe to stay. Social Services can help you if you are under 18 and don't have anywhere safe to live. The Housing Executive may be able to help if you are over 18.
Speak to our advisers if you have any questions or you're worried about talking to these services. We can explain your rights.
