    I am just wondering if these scenarios that I'm currently considering has ever been experienced by anyone else. Basically each scenario has it's pros and cons. These are

    1. Live in a reasonable accommodation which is extremely close to the lecture building.

    or

    2. Live in a large accommodation with en-suite, but have to walk a bit further to get to my university.

    At the moment, I feel like option 2 is a good one to pick.

    However anyone else think I'd be better off in option 1 ? I've not had experience of this of course so I want opinions from other people

    If I were you, I'd take option two; I find that a walk in the morning gives me time to gather my thoughts and mentally organise what I'd like to achieve with the day. You could always take a bike to get there faster, or go with a group of friends to make the journey more entertaining. Although, friends can make you late sometimes!

    Option 1, because you will be late for lectures, but not as late seeing as you're closer.


    OHH, new way to decide! How far will the toilets/showers be from your room? Say, the other end of the corridor (some can be long), take into consideration how many times you'll likely walk to and from the bathrooms in a day. Maybe 5 or 6. Calculate the distance. Add it on to the distance to your lecture theatre. Is option 1 still closer? :gah:

    Not you, specifically, just students in general

    I'm a really punctual person but even I can get carried away with staring into space in the mornings and totally disregarding the time until I realise that I should have left 5 minutes ago. Especially if I was up late the night before.

    When you say large, do you mean lots of room, or lots of people.
    If its lots of room then id pick 2. If it was lots of people, then id pick 1.

    I have option 2 myself and I'd reccommend it, as it means that by the time I get to lectures I'm properly awake and ready to face the day, plus getting up 20 mins earlier is good for us lazy students.

    Also (as often happens) if you wake up hungover the walk does you good in that respect.

    If its lots of room then id pick 2. If it was lots of people, then id pick 1.
    I really wouldn't want too many people either !
