Travelling to Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton has excellent local, national and international transport links - so its easy to get to us.  Our UK central location also makes us ideal base to explore the rest of the UK - as well as the rest of  the world.

If you are travelling to Wolverhampton, you should try and get a flight to Birmingham International Airport (BHX), which is closest to all University of Wolverhampton Campuses. It has a railway station with frequent, direct services to Wolverhampton and good connections to Walsall, Telford and Birmingham.

If you cannot get a flight to Birmingham, the other options are Manchester (MAN) or London (LHR). For advice on how to make your way to the University, please read the information below or contact the International Centre.

There are connections from all airports to the West Midlands / Wolverhampton area.

Getting to your campus from the train / coach station


Wolverhampton Campus

Both the railway and coach station are situated in the centre of Wolverhampton and it is possible to walk to the University’s City Campus.

Randall Lines and Lomas Street/North Road accommodation is also within 1 kilometre of the town centre, but if you have heavy luggage to carry, you may prefer to get a taxi.


‌Walsall Campus

‌If you are arriving by train and wish to use the bus to get to the campus you will have to make your way to Walsall Bus Station (at St Paul’s) and catch the number 51 bus at Stand G. This bus goes towards Birmingham and it is only a short journey to the campus (cost approximately £2.10). Get off the bus at Jesson Road (just before the Broadway traffic island) go down Jesson Road. Take the first road on the right, Gorway Road.

Alternatively, take a taxi from the station, which costs around £5.

Telford Campus

‌‌Telford is our youngest campus and a place where technology is pushed to new limits. The facilities fit our engineering and built environment (as well as some of our computing and social work) students like a glove. It's possibly the brightest place in one of our greenest counties.

You will find us near to – but just far enough from –  Junction 5 of the M54.

Trains from Telford Central go directly to Wolverhampton (15 to 25 minutes) and Birmingham (30 to 35 minutes).

Our free shuttle bus service takes you into Telford town centre - as well as to the bus and railway stations - on its way to Wolverhampton City Campus.

FREE University Campus Buses

During term time, a free shuttle bus operates between campuses Monday – Friday. 

Please ensure therefore that you allow for additional travel time on public transport to get you to your campus on arrival in the UK. You will need to show the driver some student ID in order to use the Intersite buses. When you are enrolled this will be your ID card but before you enrol you may be able to show your Unconditional offer letter.
