The no 6 leaves the Campus East Interchange, then stops in the city centre and ends at Clifton Moor.

You can reach York by coach from many destinations around the country of which many stop at the railway station.


By Cycle

Cycling is really popular in York and particularly so with students. 

There are many reasons why cycling to and around campus will be of benefit to you.

Unfortunately, bikes are easy prey for thieves so it is important to keep your bike locked at all times. Constantine College offers plenty of secure cycle storage.

The nearest Park and Ride to the University is Grimston Bar (off the A1079) a few minutes walk from the College.

Students are advised not to bring their cars as they will not be able to get a parking permit to park their cars on campus.

You can then either walk down Kimberlow Lane to get to Constantine College or via the pedestrian ribbon through Langwith College.
