I’ll be commuting from home to Southampton uni from September 2019 as I’m going to be living at home. So is there anyone else who will also be commuting to Southampton uni as well??

To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any "Commuter societies". That being said, I know a few people who commute in, one from quite far and one local. Both of which belong to multiple Societies, they're usually well planned, with events being organised sometimes weeks in advance, so planning how you can attend is relatively easy.

I’ve never asked them this directly, but from what I can tell:

It really depends on how far you’re commuting from.

One person I know essentially live a 10 minute drive away from campus, this makes it easy to commute in, easy to attend societies etc...

The other I know, who livs about a 20 minute train and 20 minute bus from campus, although I don’t like to speak on behalf of people, would view it differently.

I believe for them, it’s quite a commitment coming into uni some days due to the effort (and cost). I’ve seen it before where they’ll stay on campus between lectures for often upwards of 6 hours. If you’re someone who enjoys studying in a library, then that’s great, but if not I’d be wary.
