Travel and Parking

With a community of around 10,000 students, travel and the associated impacts – congestion and pollution – are a key issue for the University to manage.

To achieve this, the University is working hard to ensure it supports sustainable travel options through its Travel Plan, including subsidised Uno buses. The route 19 service links Scholars Green Student Village residences with Waterside from around 0530 to Midnight (subject to periodic timetable reviews). The 19A passes St George’s Avenue during peak hours or you can alight at Waterside and catch the free route 20.  You’ll also be issued with a free Uno travel pass for route 19 as a Scholars Green Student Village resident. We also run a Park and Ride facility to the west of the town.

Limited car parking is available at Scholars Green Student Village on Boughton Green Road with strict criteria to manage the supply and demand. To see if you qualify for a termly permit, please visit the travel and parking page. Where successful, parking for Scholars Green Student Village only is charged at £100 per term. Note you’ll be unable to bring your car to the University campuses. We also run a liftshare database allowing you to find or offer lifts with fellow students.

The residences are located roughly 3 miles (St George’s Avenue) and 4.5 miles (Waterside) from teaching campuses – a distance that can be easily cycled, some of which is traffic free. Check the information on cycling and walking routes.
