    Basically how long does it take you to get to uni, if you live at home or aren't in halls etc.

    Or if you're considering commuting, how long would you be willing to travel?

    On a really good day it can take 45mins for me. Generally it's around 1hr-1hr 30 mins. I take a train and then a bus, the bus is always the problem for me - it comes late most of the time and is packed with school kids.

    1 and 1/4 hours if I save money and stay on the bus, maybe 1 hour if I get off and get the subway. Wish I could move out

    When I start at Leeds in September I will be commuting from Doncaster.
    Bus - 10 mins
    Train - 40 mins
    Bus - 10 mins

    So an hour in total plus waiting times etc.

    Fun, can't wait...

    If I am going by train it is half an hour/45 mins. If I am going by bus at least 2 hours.

    I leave about an hour before I need to be at uni... in reality it takes about 40 mins, but that's just to allow for train being late/missed etc!

    I drive to uni these days and it takes me 90 minutes. (Saying that, I do actually have a flat in my uni city but I don't stay there anymore).
