Travel

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. We also run a Park and Ride facility to the west of the town.

St. Johns residences are located in the town centre, just a short walk from Waterside campus. Check the information on cycling and walking routes.
