The East Road campus is about a ten-minute walk from the centre of Cambridge and landmarks such as the Guildhall and Market Square. The Health Building and Music Therapy Centre are just around the corner on Young Street. You’ll find a campus map at the bottom of this page.

Cambridge is the unofficial cycling capital of the UK, and Cambridge Cycling Campaign has a free city map and route planner.
You’ll find plenty of cycle parking on campus.

Trains run frequently between Cambridge and London, Ipswich, Peterborough, King’s Lynn, Birmingham and Stansted Airport.
If you’re travelling from Heathrow or Gatwick, head for King’s Cross or Liverpool Street stations in London; you can catch trains to Cambridge from there. If you’re planning a train journey in the UK, National Rail Enquiries is a helpful source of information.
If you’re travelling on Eurostar it will bring you to King’s Cross, where you can catch a train to Cambridge. The journey time from London to Cambridge is about 50 minutes to one hour.
When you arrive in Cambridge, we’re a 20-minute walk from the train station. Alternatively, you can catch the busway A bus to The Busway Parkside (Nw-Bound), which is a seven minute walk to campus. Take a look at Google maps to see which option suits you.

We’re a 15-minute walk from Drummer Street bus station, where most local bus services stop. Stagecoach has bus timetables and route maps.
National Express coaches (including services from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted airports) stop at the Cambridge Coach Station on Parkside, a five-minute walk from campus. Coach routes and timetables are available from National Express.

Cambridge is close to the A1 for north-south journeys, and the A14 and A47 for east-west routes.
