    Hello guys I need your help. Would it be better for me to apply for accommodation at Kingston or live at home? I live in East London E4. Google maps tells me it takes me around 1hr 40mins to get to the campus. Is that ok or would I be better off living on campus. Please help.

    It depends if you want a campus atmosphere? Such as meeting with people, partying in halls, social stuff etc that you won't get as much of if you commute do to you being 'away' from where most people are. Cost wise it would be cheaper to be at home I am sure! However, it depends on what exactly you want.

    Hi
    As said it would depend on what you are after. Either way you will have a great time at Kingston I would suggest looking into costs and things like that. I know people who commuted in their first year and are now living in Kingston and vice versa so you can always change your mind in your second year

    I am going to commute when I start in September. I will spend 1hour 45mins each way on the bus, catching the bus at 7:17 to get in just in time for 9. Don't worry about it and don't let people tell you it is the wrong thing to do as everyone has different reasons and circumstances for choosing to commute. I know it will be hard work but is the best thing for me. In terms of expenses it will cost about £500 a year to take the bus whereas if I lived on campus that would be cost for the room and travel on top to go home at the weekends. You can always change your mind after a year if the first year is too much.

    Did you get allocated halls because you're an undergraduate? I can't get halls at the moment since I'm postgrad
