Getting Here

By Bus

The University of Bath has frequent bus services from all around Bath that drop you almost at our door. Find out about current bus services.


By Car

The Edge is a 10-minute drive from the city centre of Bath and is situated on the eastern edge of the University of Bath’s campus. You’ll find us near the University main bus stop, the East car park and next door to the Sports Training Village.

If you’re using Satnav we recommend using the postcode BA2 7PD which will direct you along Convocation Avenue, and to a right turn immediately after a set of traffic lights. You will see The Edge on your right just after the turning.



We have lots of car parking at the University of Bath, but some of the restrictions can be confusing, so we’ve made a small guide to make your car parking experience go as smoothly as possible.

We advise using The East Car Park, which has a combination of accessible, permit and pay and display parking. The Pay and Display machines take cash or you can use the JustPark app. Further parking details are available on the University website.
