All students are encouraged to walk and cycle to campus where possible. It's a great way to keep fit, manage your wellbeing and is very low cost! View walking times between our campuses, halls of residence and the town centres.
All our campuses have cycle parking, external bike pumps and access to showers and lockers, and BTN Bike docking stations on Brighton campuses and around the city, it's a great way to cycle to uni if you don't have a bike of your own.
Sign up to BTN BikeShare and use free ride code UNI2021 for 30mins free use.
Check the location of all the facilities on our online map, and plan your route using the Brighton and Hove or Eastbourne cycle maps.

The university operates a term-time shuttle bus, the UB1, between the Brighton campuses and Varley Park Halls of residence, free to all students and staff. The low emission bus is fully-accessible with free on-board wifi and phone charging points. The service operates a circular route from the Falmer campus to Old Steine, serving each stop once an hour. Use your unicard to gain access to the bus, by tapping it to the on board card reader.

Driving is not encouraged, and should only be done where this is absolutely necessary, reducing the demand on our car parks and congestion on the roads. Car parking on all of our campuses is restricted and only available to those with a parking permit.
If you choose to drive, consider car sharing, which will reduce the costs of driving and associated carbon emissions. Websites such as Liftshare enable you to find someone to car share with.
Car sharing is also an option with people within your household or support bubble.
