Travelling to university

There are plenty of transport options to get you to our London campus.


Strawberry Hill, Teddington and Twickenham train stations are all within walking distance of campus, with frequent trains to and from London Waterloo via Richmond or Kingston.

If you live near a London Underground station, the District Line and the Overground both terminate at Richmond. From here you can jump on a train or bus to get to campus.

As a student in London you may be entitled to a range of student discounts, to help with the cost of travelling or commuting into university.

We know that public transport can sometimes be temperamental, so it's a good idea to have a few routes into campus that you know well incase of disruptions. Our academic staff are very aware that you might have travelled to attend teaching, and therefore are understanding when one-off incidents occur and make you late. 

  • National Rail have apps for iPhone  and Android that include live journey information.
  • London Underground apps are also available for iPhone and Android with maps, route planners and status updates.
  • Websites and apps, like National Rail and Citymapper, can help you plan different ways to travel into campus. They also keep you updated on any posible disruptions.


Take the 33 towards Fulwell. Get off at the ‘St Mary's University’ stop, which is just outside main reception. Many other bus routes are just a short walk away on either Twickenham or Teddington high street.

The London Live Bus Countdown app can be downloaded for iPhone or Android and includes up-to-date timetables for all London Bus routes.


We offer covered bicycle racks for anyone wishing to cycle in.


There are approximately 85 day spaces on main campus available to students and staff. Parking spaces cost £2 for 12 hours and can be booked via the JustPark app (available on iPhone and Android).
