University of Bedfordshire - Bedford

The Bedford campus is a 20-minute walk from the town centre.

The Bedford campus is a 20-minute walk from the town centre. The University offers a free bus service for staff and students that runs between Bedford town centre and the campus. Bedford offers excellent transport links to the rest of the UK as it sits between the M1 and the A1. The town connects by train to Luton (20 minutes) and London (40 minutes).

At Bedfordshire every year we run a fantastic social programme that includes visits to many famous sights and locations, so that your experience is cultural as well as academic.

There are weekend trips and visits very month during term time and longer trips abroad during Easter breaks. So whether it is a day at the seaside in the Bournemouth, thrill-seeking on the roller coaster at Thorpe Park or Christmas shopping in London, you will never be short of things to do when you are not studying!
