I have a quick question for current Northampton uni students.
Basically, I intend to apply at Northampton for a BA Primary Education course. However, the main issue I'm slightly concerned about is the accomodation side.
I live locally, near Rugby, which is only about a half hour drive to the uni. I'm therefore stuck with the question of whether I stay in the halls or whether I commute.
On the open day I spoke to an ex-student there who said that he commuted. I asked him if he felt like he'd missed out on anything or if he found it harder to meet people etc. but he said that he still felt part of the uni life and after nights out he'd crash out in a mate's room.
Any other opinions?
Should I stay in the halls or commute? Would I be missing out on 'the uni life'?
Oh, also, in case it makes any difference, I have my own car and can drive, so wouldn't be relying on buses or anything.
What do you think?
