    If your accommodation is 15 minutes walk to your university, would you rather walk or take the bus? Reasons?

    I always walk to uni because getting the bus there and back can get crazy expensive over time, plus walking's a good way of getting some exercise into your day.

    Besides, a 15 minute walk isn't far. I had to walk 45 minutes one way to get to my secondary school

    Walk 15 minutes is nothing really.

    Walk because 15 minutes is basically nothing. You'd have to be super lazy (and rich) to pay for public transport to take you such a short distance.

    Maybe if it was raining or snowing or I was carrying something heavy I'd get the bus, otherwise walk.

    I would walk as 15 mins is fine for a nice walk everyday, plus it is cheaper. However, I would consider public transport if the water was miserable or if i wasnt feeling well

    You're missing the other popular transport option - cycling.

    I'm a lazy bugger. Doesn't help that I was raised in the city surrounded by flat surfaces. So even though in my first year my uni was a 15 min walk, I took the bus lol. I couldn't hack the crazy hills. I do walk to uni now as I'm in a house right next to campus

    And if you live by the coast when it floods, rowing.

    I would definitely walk lol. My primary school was a 15 minute walk from my home, and I'd only ever walked since year 4. My secondary school was 30 mins away; I walked it everyday. My sixth form is in the next town over lmao so I have to take the train, but still it's 20 mins from home to the train station, and another 15 min walk from the station (10 min train journey) to school...... but to be fair I do at the top of a massive hill so I'm always going down said hill every morning. Walking back home however is a different matter

    Well, everyone seems quite content with walking- suppose 15 minutes walk isn't an issue at all which is good!
