Bus travel

Bristol is a great city to get around by bus. Our main campus and student residences are linked to the city centre and other places by frequent bus services, many running around the clock.

First Bus is the city's main bus operator, with many services stopping close to our main campus.  Abus also run services around Bristol and beyond.

Students and staff can benefit from discounted fares on bus services across Bristol and further afield. Visit our bus fares page.

For assistance planning public transport journeys, please visit Traveline or Travelwest.

Operated by First Bus, the Bristol Unibus services connect students and staff between the residences at Stoke Bishop, our main campus, the city centre and our Langford Campus

Bristol Unibus U1 - Stoke Bishop Halls of Residence to the City Centre, via main Campus

The U1 runs up to every 6-7 minutes at peak times during the week and every 20 minutes at the weekend.

At off-peak times and weekends (daytime only), the U1 route extends from our main campus to the city centre.

The U1 runs in University term time only and can be used by students, staff and the general public.

Students living in a University-allocated accommodation (except postgraduates in postgraduate-only residences) receive a free Bristol Unibus pass valid for the U1 and four other First services (restrictions apply – see website below for details).
