    You can look at a map or go to a train operator's website and plan a journey to each (therefore getting the usual travel time).

    What's "close"? Durham will be furthest away (about four hours).

    Bath, Reading and Sussex will be the closest, I think. Bath's within an hour, I would say.

    Durham, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, Lancaster are all pretty northern.

    Loughborough, Birmingham, Nottingham, Warwick are in the midlands.

    Surrey, Bath, Reading, Sussex, Kent and Brunel are down south and closest to you.

    From longest to shortest journey.

    Hull - Five and a half hours
    Durham - Five hours
    Lancaster - Five hours
    Leeds - Four and a half to five hours
    Sheffield - Four and a half hours
    Nottingham - Four hours
    Loughborough - Three and a half to four hours
    Kent (Canterbury) - Three hours
    Birmingham - Two hours
    Warwick (Coventry) - Two hours
    Brunel - Two hours - that's a guess
    Surrey - Two hours - that's a guess.
    Sussex - Two hours
    Bath - One and a half hours
    Reading - One hour

    So the places in the midlands and south, particularly Bath and Reading (to be expected). You'll obviously have to take into account the travel to the campus. Durham's the furthest north but is actually quicker to travel to than Hull (a fair distance south) as Durham's on the East Coast Mainline (so fairly direct) and you have a shorter trip to the uni (as it's in the city and not a campus). Even so, I'm supised it will take that long to travel to Hull. I'd check those times, especially the estimates, but it gives a general idea.

    You need to think more about distance though and take transport links and whether it's a campus or city based uni (something I failed to do with Hull).

    Kent isn't all that far away but, by train, can take longer than somwhere a fair but further north.
