    Hi, I am a prospective student for starting at Uni in 2018, and I was just curious about what St Luke's campus is really like. For example, is it too quiet, too far away from accommodation and Streatham, or is it a good balance?

    Any info greatly appreciated!

    Hi,
    I'm a student at both campuses. It is a bit of an inconvenience being on both, but it's not too bad. Some very quick, general advice here (in a rush, sorry if the grammar is terrible):
    1. If you're purely on St. Lukes, live in Rowancroft. It is the closest accommodation to St Lukes, and you'll be with many course mates.
    2. If you're on both, try and get in Lafrowda, or St Germans, or Pennsylvania Close. These are on Streatham campus, but not on the other side. DO NOT live in Duryard or Birks, unless you fancy a 40 minute walk for your 8:30s.
    3. St. Lukes is quiet, in a good way. There is always library space, but a lot of people from your course will probably hang out there too.
    4. Many societies meet at Streatham, but I understand there are some St. Lukes based societies (mainly for medics).
    5. There is a D and H bus that goes between the two. At the moment it's about £1.70 from streatham to lukes, and £1 from lukes to streatham. Alternatively, depending on your walking speed, it takes about 25-35 minutes to walk between the two.

    I hope you get to come here in September!

    Thank you so much, this is so helpful!
    So if you have lectures on both campuses, how often do you have to go between them?

    What course would have classes on both for example?

    Medical Sciences (which I think might be the only one, but don't quote me). In first year you tend to have to go between them once a day, but this changes in second and third year depending on what modules you pick.
    Medical students tend to stay on St Lukes, and I think most of sport science is based on Lukes, but you may have to occasionally trek to Streatham.
