Rail - 

York is well served by CrossCountry, East Coast, Northern and Transpennine services. Both 66 and 44 buses call at the station on the way to the University Campus. 

Bike - 

With the University campus only two miles from the city centre, many staff choose to cycle to work.

Car parks can be found on the interactive campus map. Once you have started you will be able to apply for a parking permit
