For students who travel from home every day, we run a subsidised transport service covering a wide area. We operate 19 routes in total and over 800 of our students use the service every day. We pick up from 10 mainline railway stations – Camberley, Reading, Slough, Maidenhead, Uxbridge, Amersham, Aylesbury, Bracknell, High Wycombe and Hounslow – with a total of 96 stops across the 19 routes. So even if we don’t pick up in your immediate area, you can take advantage of the rail network to connect with our transport facilities.
For those students considering us as an alternative to studying within central London, Maidenhead Station is on the fast route from Paddington. Nearby High Wycombe is on the Marylebone line too, so getting here is a lot easier than you might think. Our College Discretionary Learner Support Fund is here to help students who need financial assistance with the cost of coming to college. Many students successfully apply to this fund each year to help them get a bus pass. The cost of using the transport service can be found on the website along with the latest timetable.
More information on the Discretionary Learner Support Fund can be found on the Fees & Funding page of this website. For those students who drive, we have extensive free car parking. Just register your vehicle with the transport department during enrolment.
