Is Girton seen as a 'lower' college by Cambridge undergrads? Is the distance from the university lecture buildings resented by the Girton students.

Thanx!

maybe 10mins, depending on where exactly you're going.
This is one of the reasons you NEVER make an open application.

I know it will keep me in shape, but what about those freeeezing cold mornings when you reeeeally dont wanna get out of bed and the prospect of cycling 15 mins to lectures is totally out of the question. Are there car parking spaces etc (hmmm but then id need to buyu a car with my imaginary money .... hmmmm)

and get college permission to keep a car, which you won't be able to get, and be able to drive in Cambridge city centre, which you can't. So the desicions out of your hands really.

They're all lovely! Anyway, Girton is the only college that has its own swimming pool so it ain't all bad. The people I know who are studying there don't seem to mind the distance too much. And they ARE a lot fitter than me!
