Getting to the College
West Suffolk College is easy to find and convenient to get to. The main campus is near the centre of Bury St Edmunds, a short walk from local bus and rail stations (with some buses stopping outside the campus directly), and only minutes from the A14. Other learning sites are close to the centre of their respective towns.
Bus and Trains
To find the best bus route for you to get to College, pick your nearest town from the list below and it will take you straight to the bus or train timetable, it’s that easy!
The main campus is a ten minute walk from the centre of Bury St Edmunds, on the road leading to Risby/Newmarket.
The Milburn Campus is a few minutes further but easily within walking distance from the town.
There are covered bike shelters at both the main campus and The Milburn Campus.
We encourage all our students and staff to lead a healthy and active lifestyle and where possible, to cycle to College. We have a number of places around the College where you can keep your bicycle secure. Suffolk County Council offers information on cycle routes within Suffolk and you can also plan the safest journey on CycleStreets.net. For details on how to download the CycleStreets app, visit CycleStreets.net/mobile.
There is limited parking on campus and spaces fill up quickly. Parking costs £2 per visit but if purchased in advanced at the College Shop it is reduced to £1.50. Parking at the Milburn Campus is limited but free due to a lack of alternative parking nearby.
