Travelling & Transport

Farnham College tries to encourage students to use alternative modes of transport other than cars. We are aiming to reduce the amount of traffic as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle and living environment.

Travelling by bike

Cycle racks and motorbike spaces are available at the College. Students travelling to the College by bicycle from local areas can plan their route by visiting the Surrey County Council website:

Travelling by car

The College is easy to reach by road and can be reached via several routes, including the A31. There is a student car park on site, which provides free parking. If you park off-site, you must ensure you are parked legally and are not blocking residents' driveways.
