The way we travel has a significant impact on our environment and we encourage staff and students to travel as sustainably as possible.
Our travel surveys show that the majority of students travel by non-car modes (75%) and 49% of staff travel by non-car modes. We want to reduce the number of journeys made by single-occupancy vehicles and increase active travel.
Our ambition is to consolidate and rationalise car-parking across campus and to reduce internal car circulation to promote a healthier, more pedestrian-friendly campus through our Campus Masterplan. The vision also promotes greater levels of cycling in and around the site. Improved pedestrian connections will be key to improving permeability across the campus – think tree-lined boulevards, public squares and a generally more well-defined network of routes and open spaces.
