Transport and Travel
Travel guidance during Covid-19
If you need to travel to the University, please plan ahead. Visit Transport Scotland for the latest Scottish Government advice and up-to-date guidance on public transport and active travel.
However you travel, please ensure you are very clear of the facilities available and rules in place before you start your journey. Keep in mind that many public transport operators are running reduced services.
There are many options for travel to and from our campuses, student accommodation and other sites the University uses.
Information contained on our travel pages are for guidance only. Staff, students and visitors should assess any risks associated with any form of transport used for the daily and term-time commute. If you’re looking for information on travel maps, bike locks, bike storage and facilities or public transport, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Staff, students and visitors are encouraged to investigate all travel options available, including walking, cycling and public transport when travelling to and from the University. According to our 2017 Travel Survey, 66.8% of staff and students across all campuses cycle, walk or take public transport when travelling to the University.
The University has gained almost £250,000 in grants to support active travel over the past ten years, including funding from Cycling Scotland, SEStran and Sustrans. The grants have supported projects such as the off-road path through Edinburgh College.
