Hertfordshire Uni is largely based in the town of Hatfield. The modern uni has close links to businesses and an array of professions, with the overall environment being rather entrepreneurial. There are two campuses, College Lane and de Havilland, but they’re less than a kilometre away from each other. Both are lively, fun and very easy to get to.
How to get to Hertfordshire University
The uni has great transport links to the rest of the country. In fact, it set up Uno Bus
in order to provide an easy ride to all campus areas, while improving travel across the county. The bus service also makes it possible to travel to North London with ease. There are several routes that head from the campus to lots of London’s surrounding towns, including Luton, Watford and St. Albans. You can choose to pay daily, weekly or monthly, and yes – students can blag a discount.
If you’re living off-campus and need somewhere to park, there are 800 spaces at Angerland. From there, you can pay just 20p to hop on a shuttle bus that runs to both campuses. The Park and Ride is located off junction 2 of the A1(M) on Southway (A1001) – handy if you’ve got a regular commute to contend with.
Getting the train to the University of Hertfordshire is also simple, as Hatfield is only a 20 minute train journey from King’s Cross. There are also good train connections around the rest of the UK – don’t forget you can grab a Young Person’s Railcard
if you’re lucky enough to be under 26.
When it comes to actually getting around the campus, the uni’s UBIKE project
allows you to hire a bike all year round. There are a range of models, and they all come with lights, lock, mudguards and a rack. Alternatively, you can get yourself a road-ready scooter and pay as little as £35 per week under the Scoots project
Lift share to and from Hertfordshire Uni
Of course, one of the cheapest ways to get to uni is through a car share. You can meet some interesting people, save your cash and help keep the environment that little bit greener. What’s not to love?
It’s not just for students either. There’s plenty to see and do in Hatfield, as well as the quaint nearby town of Hertsmere
, so if you’re planning a day out there, arranging your journey through Liftshare can be a fun way to keep costs down.
