    Hi! I was wondering if it is worth having a car on campus while studying or is it needless/too expensive to manage?

    For most universities and courses you wont need one really, not all universities have decent parking either so you might not be able to park on campus.

    Public transport is generally pretty good in large universities/cities, so no.

    Might be useful on a placement year or if your course requires a lot of travelling though. Not essential.

    You simply have to compare the cost of other methods if transport such as public to the cost of owning and paying for a car. Estimate how much you would spend per year.
