Inter-campus and business travel

Travelling between the City Centre and City South Campuses is a lot easier than you may think. Taking the bus or cycling can actually be quicker than driving, due to congestion, roadworks and finding time to park.

  • City Centre Stop: Corporation Street, stop BS5 (5-10 minute walk to campus)
  • City South Stop: Harbourne or Westbourne Road (one minute walk to campus)
  • Our Interactive Map includes the bus stops and route between campuses.
