There are a number of ways to get to College. For those students travelling by bus or train, you may be able to take advantage of the special rates offered by certain transport providers. Please see below for details of offers and how to get a bus or train pass.
It is important that you research your proposed route to ensure that you get the best value for money. Please visit the College website for a full price list.
To ensure you secure the student rate for bus and train tickets, you will need to provide a Student ID number. Your Student ID number will be sent to you as part of the Enrolment email you will receive over the summer.
Train PassES 2021/2022
There are three train stations within a short walking distance of the College; Farnborough Main, Farnborough North and Frimley.
Train passes are valid for the whole term including weekends and reading weeks. Tickets can only be used on specific routes when travelling to and from the College.
Train passes can be purchased in advance of the start of term and can be ordered from the Student Services Office - due to the current lockdown restrictions, we do not yet have a set date when passes can be purchased from or how much they will cost. As soon as this has been confirmed, we will update this page and the College website.
Payment and a passport sized photograph must accompany your application form before your pass can be ordered. Please allow 7 to 10 working days for train passes to be processed.
