Buses within York

If you're are staying in York and making their way to campus by public transport, then you should catch either the number 44 or 4 bus service (these buses run approx. every 10-minutes):

  • Bus route for the no.4 service can be found on the First York website: http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/york/
    This service runs through the centre of York from Blossom Street to the Railway Station, then to Rougier Street, Clifford Street, Paragon Street, Heslington Road, and then makes its way to the University going first through Campus West and then up to Campus East.
  • The bus route for the no.44 service can be found on the TransDev website: http://www.yorkbus.co.uk/ and clicking on the 'Unibus' tab. This service goes a slightly different way through the centre of York to the no.4 service.

By Car

If you are travelling to campus by car, please take notice that although there is a car park at Heslington East campus, it is small and, on a weekday, it does get full quite quickly; weekends aren't as busy though.

Should you get to Heslington East car park and it is full, you will need to drive to main campus (Heslington West) and park in one of the Pay & Display car parks dotted around campus (around £6 per day for the Thursday and Friday which you will need to pay as soon as you have parked; Saturday is free parking).

Campus Central car park, on University Road, would be the best alternative car park, and the you would then need to cross the road by the bridge and catch either the free 44 or 4 bus service direct to Campus East.

These buses run approx. every 10-minutes. The number 4 service drop off by the car park at Heslington East, and the number 44 drop off outside the main Ron Cooke Hub entrance. You should then follow the signs marked 'York Law School' and 'York Management School' which will take you to the Law & Management Building.

If you manage to find a space in the Heslington East car park this is on a barrier system, and payment should be made on exiting.

Please see the following campus map where you can find highlighted the location of the Heslington East campus, and the location of the Law & Management Building. The Pay & Display car parks on Heslington West campus are highlighted in yellow - the circle shows the location of Campus Central (click to enlarge).
