Parking is limited around the University. The public car parks on Claremont Road (NE2 4AA) and Queen Victoria Road (NE1 4LP) are the closest to campus. City centre NCP car parks are located on John Dobson Street (NE1 8HL), New Bridge Street (NE1 8AB), and Carliol Square (NE1 6UF).

From Newcastle Central Station you can take the Metro to Haymarket Metro station.

The city’s coach and bus stations, including the Newcastle Coach Station, are within easy reach of the University by foot, taxi or Metro.
