Welcome

Welcome to ARU

We're really looking forward to you joining us, and we hope you enjoy your time here. Take a look around these pages and start preparing for your time at ARU.

Travelling to campus

Students on campus

It’s really important to make your first day as stress-free as possible, so we recommend planning your route to uni well in advance. Please consider Government guidelines and travel restrictions when planning your journey and stay safe.

There isn’t any parking available on campus, with the exception of Blue Badge holders, so we encourage everyone to use public transport, cycle or walk to get to uni.

Virtual campus tours

If you're not making it on to campus soon, you can still have a look around our University buildings with our virtual tours.

Have you thought about car sharing?

ARUgreen Car Share

Car sharing is a great way meet people who are going to the same campus as you. It's also a good way to save money and the environment. Our ARUgreen car share scheme is completely free to join, and you can car share on regular journeys or even one-off journeys. The more journeys you share the more you save.

Visit ARUgreen to create an account and start sharing.
