Commuter students advice

What are commuter students?


  • Each year around a quarter of new undergraduate students across the UK choose to live off campus
  • A commuter student is classed as a student whose term-time address is the same as their home address
  • These students live mainly at 'home' with family, a partner, friends or alone. Some live locally and others are spread across the region and beyond.
