And here’s a bigger map to see the location in relation to motorways.


Travelling by car

Visitors should approach Winchester along the Romsey Road. If driving on the M3, come off at junction 11 and pass through Badger Farm Road and turn right at the second roundabout to proceed along Romsey Road. Passing the Royal Hampshire County Hospital on your right, turn right into St James Lane and follow the bend of the road. The first right is Sparkford Road. The King Alfred Campus is halfway down the hill on the right hand side.

Travelling by train

The King Alfred Campus is less than one mile (approximately 15 minutes’ walk) from the railway station. Leave the railway station by the main exit and turn right into Station Road leading into Upper High Street. Turn right over the bridge and left into Clifton Terrace. Cross Romsey Road and walk along St James Terrace. At the end of the terrace turn to your right and cross the road. Then follow the path through the middle of West Hill Cemetery (note: do not take the path to the left of the cemetery). The University is situated opposite the far gate of the cemetery.

Travelling by bus / coach

Main bus and coach routes stop at King Alfred’s Statue in central Winchester. The walk to King Alfred Campus takes approximately 20 minutes. On alighting, proceed along Broadway and through the pedestrianised High Street. Turn left at Southgate Street. Cross St Clement Street and take the next right turn into St James Lane. Proceed up the hill and just after the railway bridge go through the gates of West Hill Cemetery and take the footpath through the middle of the cemetery (note: do not take the path to the left of the cemetery). The University is situated opposite the far gate of the cemetery.
