Travel and Transport

Situated in the heart of the country, Northampton has excellent travel links by road and rail from other towns and cities. To find out more about travelling to Northampton, see Getting to Waterside.

Our Waterside campus is in a prime town-centre location so is easily accessible by foot, bike and bus, and is only one mile away from Northampton rail station.

At the University of Northampton, we actively promote green travel through our Sustainable Travel Plan, and are committed to reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles travelling to our sites to help reduce air pollution and congestion in the town. UON encourages our students and staff to choose sustainable transport where possible – our heavily-subsidised Stagecoach bus service, and Sixfields Park and Ride are the most convenient, greenest, and cost-effective options when commuting to our campus.

There is limited permit-only parking onsite; however, there are many alternative council and privately-run car parks within 10-15 minutes’ walk from the campus.
