    an hour and a half seems quite far :/ is that there and back? or just one way, if one way then 3 hours travelling each day seems quite a lot

    Royal Holloway is on the opposite side of London from Kent, last time I looked...

    Also, I suspect you'll find that commuting a 3 hour round trip per day will be equally (if not more) expensive than just living in university accommodation (remember you'll often be commuting in peak hours). It will also be utterly miserable. I wouldn't want to commute that far if I had an alternative.

    I would never go over the 2 hour mark. Anything over 2 hours for me is a bit much but if the distance is 1 hour 30 I would be happy with it.

    I would live on campus if I could, I can't change jobs and I have to help out with the bills and mortgage
