Many of our students live locally and make the decision to commute into uni. By making plans you can save money, be more sustainable and make the most of your time on campus.

There are lots of advantages of commuting to campus, including saving money, maintaining your family commitments, or remaining close to friends. Whatever your reason for commuting, we want you to feel part of our Christ Church community.

Don’t forget to check the government advice on traveling during this COVID-19 period to make sure your journey is as safe as possible.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we encourage the use of public transport and cycling to campus through a range of discounts and facilities.

Our network of campuses stretch across Kent and Medway and are easy to get to by foot, bike, train, bus or car.  Find out how to travel to any of our campuses or centres. And make sure you take advantage of  discounted Public Trasnport.

For those planning to cycle in, there are cycle stands, lockers and showers across campus.

Don’t forget to check the government advice on traveling during this Covid-19 period to make sure your journey is as safe as possible.

There is no parking in Canterbury, unless you have a registered disability, so the best option for parking in Canterbury is the Park and Ride.

Students can apply for a parking permit (fee payable) that can be used to park a car at one of the Christ Church car parks at the Medway campus. However, it’s important to know that even with a permit, parking is on a first-come-first-served basis and so a permit does not guarantee a space.

For Welcome week 2021 only all students are to park at the Historic Dockyard, the entrance to which is directly opposite the entrance to Campus, just beyond the Travel Lodge Hotel on left hand side.  There is a daily charge of £3 to park there.

I can promise you that just because you are someone who commutes to and from CCCU you will not be alone, you will be okay and you will find your feet. You may even find that uni ends up feeling like a home away from home, this is definitely something that I felt within my first year as a commuter and absolutely loved being on campus.
