Travelling to Cambridge
Cambridge trains leave from London Kings Cross or London Liverpool Street. Cambridge station is about half a mile from the campus. For train times please call national rail enquiries on 08457 484950.
Buses and coaches from most routes stop at Drummer Street Bus Station. The University is about a quarter of a mile on foot, along Drummer Street, Parker Street and Parkside (which are in a continuous line). Turn left at the lights by the fire station, into East Road, and the campus is a short way along on your right.
Cambridge is at the junction of a number of major routes, including the M11 and A14.
If you are coming by the M11, leave the motorway at junction 11, signposted South Cambridge and Harston. Follow the signs to the city centre. This will take you through a village called Trumpington. Keep going straight on along Trumpington Road indicated on the map.
This road will eventually terminate in two mini-roundabouts. At the first mini-roundabout go straight across, but keep in the right hand lane. At the second mini-roundabout turn right into Lensfield Road.
Keep going straight on crossing several sets of traffic lights and this leads directly into East Road. The fire station is on your left and APU reception is just after this on the right hand side.
If you are travelling on the A14, leave the road at the junction marked Milton, Waterbeach and Ely. At the end of the slip road there is a roundabout. Take the exit signposted Cambridge. You are now on Milton Road. Follow this road for about a mile over several sets of traffic lights, until you reach another roundabout. Turn left here and proceed onto the next roundabout, where you should go straight across. Continue straight on and you will eventually be on Elizabeth Way, which crosses the river. Follow this until you reach the next roundabout and go straight over. This is now East Road. The Grafton Centre will be on your right. Anglia Ruskin University reception is a little further down on the left.
The same directions will apply if you are travelling down the A10 from King's Lynn, as you will reach the same roundabout which connects with the A14.
Please note that parking is not available on the Cambridge campus. Please use the Cambridge Park & Ride system or public car parks. Some of these car parks are pay and display so you will need change before you enter the car park.
If you require a disabled parking space please call our Contact Centre on 0845 2713333.
