    It's extremely expensive and for lazy people. You're better off bicycling or walking if you're in Oadby.

    How long does it take to walk from Oadby though? And considering that the weather is gradually getting worse, it would be ideal to use the bus as a sensible mode of transport.

    For the entire year there I bicycled and when it snowed too much or was icy, I walked. If you get a shift on you can walk it in around 40 mins, maybe a little less. Bear in mind there are only a few days when the conditions are too poor to cycle. Cycling should take you 15 mins.

    I walked more frequently than I needed to though since I had friends who preferred not to cycle. The walk/cycle makes good exercise and gets you woken up for the day in the morning and then relaxes on the way home. Beats sitting on your arse in a sweaty bus (EDIT: with no money because you spent it all on the ticket).

    Okay, well it does sound like quite a long walk and yeah, I agree, it does save you a few hundred quid. I personally wouldn't like cycling there so I would probably go with walking there and back if I decided not to buy the bus pass. We can also apparently purchase the bus pass at the Student Union, so there's no rush in making a decision - might just walk for the first week and see how that goes.

    Why wouldn't you cycle? The entire route has a cycle lane so you won't be bothered by traffic if that's what you're afraid of...

    Single bed, unfortunately, although if you're catered you get bedding? Maybe?

    Hey. I'm a student now and the best advice I can offer is to NOT live at The Summit. The place is truly horrible, unless you're a fan of management walking in on you without knocking in the middle of the night. It's a ****show here

    Is it possible to longboard there ? Are the roads smooth or bumpy and full of cracks ?
