Improvements to the lay-by located to the front of the STV (Sports Training Village) will commence on Monday, 8 May.
The lay-by will be closed to all traffic up to and including Friday, 16 June 2017. As a result, the 20A/20C bus service will now arrive at/depart from the main Arrival Square.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and assure you that we will endeavour to return the lay-by to normal service as quickly as possible.
Should you have any queries please contact the Department of Estates Helpdesk via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new Arrivals Square building is now complete and in operation.
The expansion and extensive refurbishment has created a new welcome point, staffed by Steve King, the University’s Transport Manager, where you can tap into his detailed knowledge of local bus and train services, including up to date arrival and departure times.

Alongside Steve are three new digital displays which show the scheduled arrival time of every campus bus.
90% of the U1 service now has GPS locators and the 20 service is fully equipped, with the U18, X18 and U10 currently upgrading, so the displays can continually update with the most accurate arrival times.
The building also boasts new washrooms, with a parent and baby room and disabled accessible facility alongside a standard washroom, all of which are unisex.
Steve will be available 8am to 6:30pm every weekday, except Tuesday and Wednesday when it is 2:30-6:30pm, so pop over to see him in his new home and get the very latest local travel news in person.
Steve Egan, Vice-President (Implementation), said: “It’s great to see further development of the travel services to campus to complement the increased frequency of buses and 24/7 service on the U1.
“Travelling between campus and the City has dramatically improved, thanks to a lot of hard work by colleagues and our former Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kevin Edge.
“This is particularly important as we increase our presence at Manvers Street, and something I can appreciate personally as a regular bus user.”
