Public transport

After this date they will be priced at £2.50 until November 2023. Find out more.

If you like to get around by bike, we have cycle storage facilities at all our sites and information on off-road and quieter routes between sites. 


We’re only able to offer a small number of parking permits to those students who meet the specified criteria; students with disabilities and those who have the furthest to travel are prioritised. Students in university accommodation are not entitled to apply for a University Parking Permit
