University of York
Getting to York is easy from anywhere in the world. We have great rail links, easy access to major road networks and short travel time to international airports.
Our main campus is in the southeast of York, within walking distance or a short bus ride from the city centre. We also have a smaller site in the heart of the city, King's Manor.

There is a frequent, fast train service to York on the main East Coast Line from London King’s Cross to Edinburgh. There is also a direct service between York, Leeds and Manchester Airport.
The University is a short bus or taxi ride direct from the railway station.
There are buses from the city centre and railway station approximately every 5 minutes during the day, and it takes around 20 minutes to reach the campus.
The UoY66 service runs from York railway station to Campus West and Campus East, via the city centre. To find the bus stop, exit the railway station through the main entrance and cross the zebra crossing directly in front of you to exit the covered area. Once you are outside, cross a second zebra crossing to a small island where you can catch the UoY66 bus to campus. This service runs every 7-8 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 10 minutes on a Sunday.
The UoY66a service runs from Merchantgate in the city centre via Lawrence Street, Heslinton Hall (Campus West), Campus East and ending at York Sports Village. This service runs up to every 15 minutes on a Monday to Saturday and every 20 minutes on a Sunday.
The UoY66x service is a morning direct bus which runs three trips at 7.30am, 8am and 8.20am from Monday to Friday (term time only) from York Train Station Direct to the University of York and York Sports Village.
The ub.1 is a dedicated free shuttle bus service for travel around the main University campus during term-time. The UoY66 also provides free travel around Campus East and West.
You can reach York by coach from many destinations around the country. National Express coaches stop at the railway station.
There is a network of cycle paths on campus and cycle racks are available close to most buildings.
A taxi from the railway station to the University will take approximately 15 minutes. There is a taxi rank just outside the station. It can often be just as quick, and significantly cheaper, to take a bus. The bus stop is located outside the main station entrance.
York is easy to reach from many UK airports. See travelling from the airports.
