University hall is further away from the main campus than most other halls, but probably only by about 5 or 10 mins. The great thing is that the uni runs a bus during the week, so whereas I get to sit on a bus for 15-20 minutes to get to lectures in the morning, my friends at other halls are walking for at least 20 minutes, sometimes in the rain. It's in a nice quiet area, so you're not next to the railway tracks or a main road like some other halls. There aren't loads of services locally, the nearest Tesco's is probably about 20 minutes walking, but there is a Lidl pretty much on campus which most students shop at anyway and then you can get the bus back. The fact that it's a bit more isolated means that you get that bit closer with your flatmates.
