but my personal situation is female friend over the summer moved to uni in Falmouth whilst I'm still in Blackpool.
She'll be back every coupla months for holidays, you only really need to make the trek once or maybe twice a term and there's no problem. And uni term's only take up about half the year. Wouldn't worry too much.
If she lived a mile away you're in disaster territory. Walk the fuck away.
it's nice, she will like it. Come down and visit loads, the campus is gorgeous and roomy. If she says it isn't she's lying.
