Head into the university entrance on Norwood Avenue and it is your first right. We are on The Avenue - East. Please update your satnav - The Avenue is split into two and sat navs with old details on will send you to the wrong half.

First run buses regularly up to the University campus from town. Stops in town are opposite the bus station and outside the Abbey oppposite the Guildhall. At the University there is a stop opposite The Avenue, press the buzzer just as you turn into campus.
