    Anyone know how much the bus will cost getting to the campus and back from Sugarwell? And how frequent the service is? Just attempting to get my head around some budgeting...

    Hi here's a link to the pdf of the service times/fares for last year: http://yorkshiretiger.co.uk/uploads/...7th%202014.pdf

    I don't know if they're going to be exactly the same for 2014/15 but it should at least give you some numbers to work with.

    Hey, I was staying there from September 2012 to June 2013, as far as I know this is still accurate. You can buy a day ticket if you show them your Leeds Met student card for £2.50, they're either every hour or every 30 minutes. Though tbh, you can walk to Headingley Campus from Sugerwell, it takes like 30 minutes.

    The major downside to Sugerwell is that if you have a lecture at 9 (like I did) the first bus of the day is at 8:30 and by the time the bus gets to Sugerwell, its usually full and the driver just drives straight past... By the end of the semester its calmed down a bit but still, I'd walk if I was back there.

    Thanks for the reassuring reply; I had noted it says on the Accommodation website that it takes 45 minutes to walk to Sugarwell, but I'm fine with a half an hour walk, seeing as it saves £2.50 too.
