Studying at home can have advantages and disadvantages. It's sometimes no bad thing to stay in your pyjamas all day! Or to know you can always get a cup of coffee. On the other hand, you do have to be disciplined and organised to make sure you don't waste time.
If you have a place you expect to go to for studying, you're much more likely to stay focused on your tasks. If you can, setting up a dedicated study space where you can keep your books and files all in one easily accessible place is best - perhaps a desk in your bedroom? If you have to use a shared space have some box files to keep your documents in, with one designated for current work. Keep a pen and notebook in here, and stick a copy of your timetable and a list of your deadlines into the inside of the lid, so that you can easily find them when you need them.
When you're not on campus every day, you may miss announcements and information. So always check your University email at least once a day, and try following social media accounts for University depts and services.
Get ahead and make sure you know how to access off-campus resources like Blackboard or the e-resources the Library holds. If you have any problems, it's best to sort them out early.
When you're studying at home, it's up to you to make sure you stay on track. It will always help to have a plan, but you also need to think about how and when you study best, and to recognise the things that can distract you from study.
It's worth picking the brains of your friends too to see how they deal with these issues. Everyone is different so try strategies till you find the ones that work best for you.
