Campus Shuttle bus

Campus shuttle bus service

The campus shuttlebus is a quick, free way to get from one end of our large campus to the other. It stops at Gibbet Hill, main campus, the Sherbourne residences, Westwood campus and many other points along the way. It's there for both students and staff.

Bus services connecting main campus, Coventry train station and Wellesbourne campus

A regular bus service provided by Travel De Courcey connects main campus to the School of Life Sciences campus at Wellesbourne operating via Leamington Spa three times a day from Monday to Friday.

To view the timetable visit the Travel De Courcey website and search for the W2 service.

The De Courcey bus does collect and drop off passengers from the Gibbet Hill bus stop and also the University interchange - bus stop UW5 for the morning and midday services only (instead of the arts centre currently timetabled).

Campus Car Parking Permits

Please complete the registration form and pay for the parking permit and then email ( advising them that you're a PhD student who has applied for a parking permit but requires a B Permit (please include your University number in the email).
