The College of West Anglia

Travelling to College

It’s easy to get to and from college, as all four of our campuses are well-serviced by local bus services, with King’s Lynn campus also being a short walk from the train station. We also have limited car parking and bicycle shelters on each site.

Public transport

The college works in conjunction with local county councils and providers to operate various bus routes to and from each campus to cater for full time students. Complete our transport questionnaire below to find out which options are available for you to get to college and to start your transport application.

Cambridge Shuttle Bus

The college runs a free shuttle bus for Norfolk-based students from Waterbeach Station to the Cambridge Campus each college day.

The coach will collect students from the bus stop in Waterbeach village at 8.45 am (to coincide with the train from King’s Lynn arriving at Waterbeach at 8.35am). The bus stop is opposite Gibson Close in Waterbeach village, and is 8 minutes walk from the train station. The coach will return students to the station, leaving the campus at 4.25 pm.

We provide this service free of charge to Norfolk-based students using the trains from Waterbeach but we do need to inform you that should you miss the service in the morning or the return journey in the evening, you will be responsible for making your own travel arrangements to get to the station/college.

You will not need a bus pass to use this service but may be asked to show your student ID card to travel.
