    No it isn't. Cambridge has a rule than undergraduates must 'keep term' and live within 3 miles of the city centre for a certain number of weeks in the year (based around term dates). You can't commute.

    You will exhaust yourself, plus I think it's a rule at Cambridge that students must live on Campus during term time. Can I ask why you want to commute such a distance?

    Of course it's possible, but it would amount to a huge cost and hinder your intimate college experience.

    To be fair it's really not that far. Less than an hour on the train.

    Tough quite frankly, you will have to. As another poster said, at Cambridge you have to "keep term", and live within a certain distance, if not at the Uni.

    If you don't want to move, say goodbye to Cambridge and go to uni in London, and so you can stay in your little M25 bubble.

    It's not a matter of if you can cope or not. You are not allowed.
    Becoming a member of a college and live within a certain distance from the university /college during the term is one of the fundamental conditions to study at Cambridge, I'm afraid.
