    Hi I commute to university and can't help but notice that commuters are not really catered for. The timetable is always created based on the assumption that the students live close to the university. An example of this is having massive (I mean 8 hour) gaps in between lectures on any given day. For someone who commutes to uni 1.5hours, it's not feasible for me to go home and come back (also it's expensive) but then, it's also not feasible to wait around on campus for 8 hours.

    Do you think commuters are catered for? If not, what can be done to make sure they are also taken into consideration?

    But why should they be taken into consideration as well? It won't be feasible really.
