How to reach Lancaster University  

By Rail
There are direct rail links between Lancaster and many of the UK's major cities and airports. For train times, visit National Rail Enquiries. The 3A bus service operates between Lancaster Railway Station and Lancaster University every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday day times. There is a limited hourly service on Sunday evenings in term time. Taxis are available at the station, which is a five minute walk from the city centre. Taxi ranks are also available on campus. Local taxi services provide accessible vehicles and offer both male and female drivers.  


By Air
From Manchester International Airport take the M56 motorway at Junction 5 and join the M6 motorway at Junction 20 (north), then follow the 'By Car' directions below. Alternatively, take the train - an hourly rail link runs directly between Manchester Airport and Lancaster. For train times, visit National Rail Enquiries.  


By Car
Leave the M6 motorway at Junction 33 and take the A6 north towards Lancaster. For Lancaster University main campus - turn right at the third set of junction traffic lights on the A6 into the University main drive. Take the first exit left from the roundabout at the top of the main drive, then the first avenue on your right. This brings you to the Security Lodge where staff will direct you to your destination on campus. You can use either the RAC or AA route planners to view and print directions for your journey. If using an online route planner or satnav, please note that the University postcode is LA1 4YW.
