The University and Transdev York operate a Unibus number 44 service between the University (including Heslington East and West campuses) and York railway station. In term time these operate every 8 minutes, and approximately every 15 minutes out of term time. The 44 bus runs along Lakeside Way and there is a stop between Theatre, Film and Television and Computer Science buildings. You can find timetables on the Transdev website.

There is a dedicated free shuttle bus, ub.1, approximately every 30min between Heslington West and Heslington East campus. By bus or bike the journey takes about 20 minutes from the city centre of York.

By Car

The University of York is easily accessible by car from the A64 section of the outer ring road, via the A1079 or the A19. The city is at the junction of the A19, A59, A64 and A1079 trunk roads. The University is well signposted from the Outer Ring Road, which comprises the A64 and A1237. Our building is located on the Heslington East campus.

Car drivers are advised to avoid the city centre, as most of the roads within the city walls are pedestrianised during daylight hours every day (normally 10am-4.30pm).


If you use the postcode YO19 5LA you will be directed to the Grimston Bar park and ride. The campus is accessible via a signposted route past the park and ride site.


Limited parking is available on the Heslington East campus in the Field Lane pay and display car park. We advise visitors to park in the pay and display car parks on Heslington West and use the free shuttle service, ub1, between the two sites. Details of available car parks can be found on the interactive campus map.

The Field Lane car park is controlled by barriers and is run on a ticketing system to gain entry and exit from car park. Short stay parking of up to 45 minutes is free.

Pleast note: the pay & display machines do not accept notes or credit/debit cards.


Disabled parking bays are available on Freboys Lane and Deramore Lane. There are limited parking bays, within the cluster, for users displaying either a blue disabled badge or University of York disabled permit. Spaces are not bookable.
