Swindon Travel

Oxford Brookes University is committed to promotion of sustainability, reducing the impacts of carbon emissions and making a ‘net positive’ impact on society and the environment.

Further detail on wider sustainability initiatives can be found on the Sustainability webpages. Information about travel to our campuses can be found on our campus pages.

Walking and cycling

Swindon Borough Council have developed a number of cycling and walking maps for local travel.

There are cycle parking racks and secure bike storage available on site. Please contact the Swindon campus site office (JOF - JOF.G.02) for further details.

Bus travel

The Swindon Borough Council webpages have some great information on the local bus travel options.

The nearest bus stop to the Swindon campus is located about 10 minutes walk from the site on Westlea Drive. A number of services use this stop, such as the 1/1A service which frequently runs a service from the town centre.

Information on Swindon bus services including timetables and maps can be found on the Swindon bus website.

Train travel

The Great Western Railway currently provides the services for the Swindon train stations.

The railway station is located 200 meters from the bus station and around 3.3km from the Oxford Brookes Swindon Campus. The railway station is located 200 meters from the bus station meaning travel is approximately 50 minute walk, 30 minute bus ride and about a 10 minute taxi ride away from the Swindon station.

National Student discounts are available on train services, available through the 16-25 Rail Card and NUS TOTUM Card.


Parking at Swindon Campus is limited and restricted to permit holders only. When parking on campus, permit holders are subject to daily tariff rates.

Possession of a permit does not guarantee you a space, only that the vehicle is permitted to park in the designated University car park in the Delta 900 business site and cars are parked at owner’s own risk.

You are not permitted to park in other business car parks within the business park.

Further parking and permit information is available on the University parking webpages.
