I am starting at UEA this September studying medicine, however I'm living at home and commuting from a village, just north of Norwich, about 20 minutes from campus.
If there is by chance anyone else who is living off campus (or far enough to have to commute by means other than on foot) what are your experiences and/or pieces of advice? If you're driving in, where's the best place to park? Do you feel as if your commute is worth it? Have you ever crashed out at a friends accommodation when you can't feasible commute?
This is a rather open ended question, so please feel free to elaborate.

Hi, I’m starting medicine in September too, I live North city and will be living at home, as I’m older and own my own house. I’d also be interested in others experiences of commuting in. The uni and hospital are both served by the park and ride at thickthorn? I think, so you could use that or maybe there’s buses direct from north city. I have a parking permit for the Norfolk and norwich hospital due to my current job so may just continue to park there, I’ll retain the permit as I’ll be working bank shifts during the course.

Hi Ewan_Young! Thank you for your questions

Congratulations on getting a place to study medicine, that's amazing! This page has some great information for commuting students so do feel free to have a look at this. I myself am living a commutable distance off campus and I can't imagine an instance after my last year where I'd say it wasn't worth it. I'm having a great time and also looking forward to using my commute to listen to podcasts and audiobooks!

This travel and transport page also highlights some of the offers that local bus services offer students if that's of any interest to you. If you have any other questions just let me know! We can't wait to welcome you in September.

Best wishes,
Danielle
