Our purpose-built campus is set close to the town centre within easy walking or cycling distance from most residential areas, and is served by excellent local bus routes. We are keen to encourage staff and students to use sustainable transport wherever possible and have provided this information on walking and cycling routes, town maps and the bus system to help you do this.
