Getting Here

Halifax College is situated off of Heslington Lane, between the East and West Campuses. It's easy to reach us by road or rail, and we're only a short travel time from international airports.


We have a carpark at Halifax College, and there is a University pay-and-display car park which is about 5 minutes away by foot. 

Public Transport

The campus has great public transport links, with buses running to York City Centre and the Train Station every 20 minutes. A Taxi from Halifax College to the Station costs about £10.


There is free bicycle storage at the University, and there are plenty of bike racks around campus. You'll need to secure your bike with a lock to prevent theft, as the University takes no responsibility for stolen bicycles.
