Bus and Park & Ride
The easy way to get to and from UEA.
Regular bus services pick up and drop off at the UEA campus, so you never have to wait too long to get to or from campus. There’s also a free park and ride service for students, staff and visitors. Students can also buy discounted Konectbus and First bus passes and tickets.
Car and Parking
Car parking spaces for those who need them.
Parking on campus is limited, so you’re advised to use the free park and ride service as much as possible. Living on campus and need to drive to a placement? You can apply for a permit for the duration of your placement. Staff and postgraduate research students can also apply for permits to park on campus.
Hop on your bike and get around the green way.
Getting to and from campus and around Norwich is easy on two wheels. There’s even a cycle route that connects UEA, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, Norwich city centre and Heartsease and Broadland. There’s lots of cycle storage on campus. There’s also a summer cycle storage scheme for students.
If you’re looking to explore a little further afield National Express and Megabus operate frequent services from our very own pick-up/set-down points on campus.
National Express provides services to London and all major airports. Whilst Megabus operates low-cost travel from the UEA to London, Cambridge, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and on to Europe. If you are looking for affordable travel, look no further.
Norwich has many options for travel, most notable of which is the ever-present taxi. From the iconic Black taxis to the minicab. Taxis are a comfortable way to visit the city and Norfolk.
Local taxi providers can take you anywhere you want to go, however, they can be more expensive than the bus. Many of the taxi providers offer airport transfers to Norwich, Stansted and Heathrow as well as door to door cab journeys.
