Walking is a great way to keep fit, manage your wellbeing and it’s free! View walking times between our campuses, halls of residence and the town centres. We’re encouraging as many students to walk to campus if they can.
Cycling is great for your health and wellbeing, and can save you money. There are facilities to support cycling at all our campuses, including:
- Bike parking
- Showers and lockers
- Tool kits and pumps
- BTN Bike docking stations on our Brighton campuses - a great way to cycle to uni if you don't have a bike of your own
Check the location of all the facilities on our online map, and plan your route using the Brighton and Hove or Eastbourne cycle maps.
See the government advice for cycling, including maintaining social distancing, washing or sanitising your hands before and after cycling.
Driving is not encouraged, whilst it is a safe travel option, 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.
Car sharing is also an option with people within your houseshold or support bubble.
The government advice is to walk and cycle if you can, and where this is not possible use public transport.
All Brighton-based students should be aware that it is normal for buses travelling to and from the city centre to Moulsecoomb and Falmer to be very busy for the first few weeks of the academic year.
With capacity reduced across public transport students are encouraged to walk and cycle to campus where possible.
If you choose to use public transport, it is a legal requirement to wear a face covering and you should maintain social distancing and wash or sanitise your hands regularly when travelling.
