Travelling to our Open Days

Find out the best ways to travel to an Open Day at our Bay Campus 

Using public transport

We strongly recommend travelling by public transport as routes around the University can be very busy with traffic on Open Day. You could consider staying in the city the night before to avoid the busiest travel time and get a feel for the city.

If arriving by train…

Student Ambassadors will meet all visitors arriving at the Train Station and direct them to the free shuttle bus service which will run from the Train Station to the Bay Campus from 9.30am.

If arriving by bus…

Bus services are available from the Quadrant Bus Station to Bay Campus. Click here for more information. 

If you’re bringing groups by coach, please contact to tell us the number of visitors and your time of arrival so we know to expect you. 

Arriving by car

A free car park will be available on the Bay Campus for Open Day visitors. 

Postcode for sat-nav users: SA1 8EN

This postcode will take you to the Bay Campus.

Please note that once the car park on campus is full, all visitors must use the designated 'park and ride' site located in Bay Studios. 

There will be yellow AA signs and Student Ambassadors to direct you to this site. In the event you need to use the overflow car park in Bay Studios, please use the shuttle bus service to travel to the Bay Campus. This will operate every 15 minutes throughout the day.  

Please be aware that routes around the University can be very busy with traffic on Open Day. Please allow sufficient time for your journey.


Accessible routes and parking

We aim to make our Open Days as accessible as possible for all of our visitors. If you have a disability or require assistance, please call us on 01792 295784 or email

Alternatively, please make a note of your disability on the booking form and a member of staff will contact you in advance of the Open Day.

Travelling between campuses

There will be free shuttle buses running regularly throughout the day between Bay Campus and Singleton Park Campus for any visitors who would like to visit both campuses. We encourage visitors to use these buses to travel between campuses to reduce traffic and congestion. 

Help on the day

Our student ambassadors will be at the Train station and on campus to help you on the day. They can help with any questions you may have on the day!
