Commuting Students

We design our courses and services to support students commuting to campus.

Services designed to support you

Our teaching and support is designed to meet your needs and fit around your committments.

We provide a wide range of support, both on campus and online. This includes career and wellbeing support and access to online learning resources.

Our world-class library is open 24 hours a day at key points in the year and our teaching timetables are also designed with commuting students in mind.

Our Students' Union and colleges run events for students living off-campus to access additional support, as well opportunites to meet and socialise with other students.

Excellent transport links

We're in the heart of southwest London.

We are only a short 15 minute walk, or minutes on the bus, from Barnes station, which has regular trains running to Waterloo, Clapham Junction, Hounslow, Richmond and more. We are a short bus ride from Putney Bridge, which is on the District tube line.

We also offer a free student bus service, which runs between Putney Bridge, Barnes Station, our campus and Wimbledon.

We also offer a range of facilities for cyclists, including plenty of secure storage areas, shower facilities and lockers - we also have ebikes available on campus!

Tailored facilities

Relax, study and eat in our specially designed spaces.

Our college kitchens have lockers and comfortable seating, alongside fridges and mircowaves. Our Pocket Lounges and Touchdown Spaces are located across our campus and have soft furnishings and charging points.

We also have a variety of cafés, dining areas and study spaces for you to enjoy and relax before and after lectures.

Car Parking

We offer free onsite car parking for students.

We are currently one of the only London universities that can provide free on-campus student car parking (subject to availability). 

We are committed to encouraging green transport choices, and encourage you to travel using our free student bus service, public transport or cycle if you can!
