    Getting to the University of Bath

    Travel from Bristol Airport

    You can travel from Bristol Airport to Bristol Temple Meads Train Station in ~25 mins on the Bristol Airport Flyer airport shuttle (7 GBP single, 11 GBP return) or in a taxi (~28 GBP from outside the airport terminal). From there, Bath Spa Train Station is a ~12 min train ride, with trains leaving ~every 15 mins.

    From Bath Spa Train Station to campus

  • By bus: There are regular bus services from the train station to the University of Bath campus. The U18 buses (either the blue buses operated by Wessex Connect, or the white U18 buses operated by First Group) take ~18 mins from the Dorchester St bus stop opposite Bath Spa train station to the main car park at the University of Bath for ~2 GBP. As you exit the train station from the main entrance, and turn left (onto Dorchester Street), the number U18 buses leave to the university from the bus stop on the opposite side of the road.

    Note: there is a second university in Bath (Bath Spa University) which is outside of the town centre. Please take care to board the U18 bus to the University of Bath, rather than any of the local Bath Spa buses.

  • By taxi: A taxi rank is located outside the min exit to Bath Spa Train Station, with a journey to campus costing ~8 GBP and takes ~10 mins. Alternatively, from the city centre, a reliable local taxi company is Abbey Taxis

  • Parking on campus

    There are some visitor parking spaces available on campus. These are pay and display (~1 GBP per hour 08:00-17:00). Access to visitor car parking is via the main entrance on Claverton Down Road, turning onto Norwood Avenue. Check the car park map for details of where car parks are located.

    Alternatively, a parking permit can be purchased on check-in at the Woodland Court accommodation for 5.50 GBP.
