Park and Ride

Since 2018, the University has partnered with Uno to operate a park-and-ride facility for staff, students and visitors. Located at Sixfields, Edgar Mobbs Way (NN5 5JT), only two miles from Waterside Campus, this is the primary University parking option for commuting students.

Parking is free with payment required for the park and ride bus only – operated by Uno – at a fare of £1 for a daily return for students and staff (Monday – Friday).

The Park and Ride buses provide free Wi-Fi, and run every 20 minutes to Waterside (peak term times), providing quick reliable bus travel to the University campus.

If travelling to St George’s Avenue you can utilise the park and ride service at Sixfields by taking the bus to either the rail station or Waterside and then using the free intercampus bus to St George’s Avenue (board the 20 service at Sol Central or Waterside).

For the latest timetable, please visit Uno Buses and download the Park and Ride leaflet and see the bus route.
