Hello, I am looking for Universities that are on the outskirts of London such as Royal Holloway since I wanted to live at home. I live in South London and will be driving so any Universities with a travel time of 1-1 1/2 hours would be fine.
Thank you

Southampton's maybe a smidge farther (about half an hour on from Winchester), but I know a couple mature students who commuted from London for at least first year there.

Just of an interest - what is the point to live in London but study elsewhere?

Assuming you don't have a disibility before you set your heart on driving to university you need to look at the parking situation- not all universities have provision for students to park on campus and those that do often have restrictions on who can park there. Also do consider doing 3 hours of driving a day could be exhausting after a while.

I'm assuming the OP doesn't want to move away from home and the thing with most London unis is they are either really competitive to get into like LSE, UCL e.c.t or pretty naff like London Met, UEL, Middlesex. Not a lot of inbetween choice.

Yep, that's exactly it. The thing with unis here in London is that they are either really competitive or really rubbish so I'm looking if there is any universities that are just about outside of London.
