While Newcastle is decidedly the hub of activity in the North East, it is less congested than most large cities. With most of the city lying within one square mile, it's easy to get around quickly. Many residential areas are within easy walking distance of the city centre and University campus, or are located on the Metro and bus routes.
The local authority has a policy of reducing the number of car journeys into the city. The University is also committed to helping staff leave their cars outside the city. It encourages alternatives such as public transport, walking, cycling and car sharing. Find out more from our Travel to Work and parking pages.
The city is on the main London to Edinburgh train line, with Central Station a five minute Metro journey from the campus.
