Mainly applies to second/third years, I guess, as most of you probably live in halls during their first year, but do you live a walkable distance away or do you go by bus/car? If so, do you find it cuts you off from your uni-related social life (societies etc) and does it make you skip lectures more often or do you not mind it at all?

I lived 4 miles away but it was more like 6 the way you have to go via public transport. It could take about 45 minutes to get there becuase I had to go via the city centre and traffic could be chaos.

Where I live is 2.5 miles from Manchester University and there are a lot of students here even there they are not any halls as such.

I live in halls on the uni campus so it takes 5 - 10 minutes to get to lectures depending on which block the lecture is in. The house I bought for the second year is actually even closer - about 2 minutes from all the lecture blocks. Its great

Yep, me and my father bought one between us. We are thinking of buying another to rent out to other students. Its all good investement. Its tiring though looking at houses all the time and I really dont like estate agents.
