Location and transport

It is possible to walk to campus from Hazel Farm, but this would take you around 45 minutes.

All Hazel Farm residents are eligible for subsidised bus passes which you can use on the Stagecoach route 1.

This route runs between Hazel Farm, campus and Tesco. If you get off at Tesco you can also take a short 5-10 minute walk to Surrey Sports Park.

You can walk into town, but this would take about an hour. We recommend using the subsidised bus pass on Stagecoach route 2 which will stop at the Friary Bus Station in town.

You can find a Costcutter convenience store on Oregano Way, which will be useful for quickly buying groceries without needing to travel to Tesco.
