Other transport options

  • Bicycle
    Come to college by bicycle. Our college sites include areas to safely store your bike.
  • Car
    Parking is available at each college site to students, staff and visitors, although it does fill up quickly. Why not use the college bus service? It’s a greener, and more convenient way to get to each site.
  • Public transport

    As well as the college bus service, public bus services are available across the county:

    Trent and Barton ‘pronto’ bus service runs to and from Nottingham, with stops directly outside our Derby Road campus, and Stagecoach services are available across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Visit for more information.
