If I lived at the Hudson, what would be the quickest bus route to get to UVic?
Take the #14 or the #4. Both buses stop every 5 - 8 minutes on weekdays right outside The Hudson on Douglas Street. Either route takes about 25 minutes to get to UVic.
Where are the secret studying spots downtown?
During the day, the downtown library is by far your best choice. For those late night cram sessions, there are plenty of coffee shops nearby. A local favourite, Serious Coffee is open until 11:00pm Thursday - Saturday, and is blocks away at 632 Yates Street.
Where are the best places to get groceries close to The Hudson?
China Town is great on a student budget and Yates Street Market is the best spot for organic foods, but comes with a higher price tag.
What about the closest nightlife spots?
If you're living at The Hudson, you'll have tons of places on your front doorstep - from pub to posh to party palaces - to pick. (Try saying that after a few of your favourite cocktails.)
