Travel during COVID-19 pandemic

The UK Government are urging everyone to consider walking and cycling before using public transport. View the online map of facilities available across our campuses for active travel (walking/ running/ cycling): http://bit.ly/UOBActiveTravelFacilities​

Walking to campus is a great way to keep fit and it produces the least amount of carbon of any form of transport. Our Brighton campuses are located within walking distance of Brighton city centre, train stations or bus stops, and the Eastbourne campus is also within walking distance of the town centre and train station.

The table below shows walking times between the campuses and town centres.

Keeping healthy!

Research also suggests that walking is possibly the single most effective and accessible form of physical activity. Health professionals now recommend that everyone should aim to do 30 minutes of moderate exercise (such as walking) at least five times a week.

Check out the NHS Active 10 walking campaign which aims to get more people walking. Their free Active 10 app takes away the guesswork – it shows how much brisk walking you are doing and how you can do more. It’s easy to use and helps you set your goals for the day.

You can also find a range of short walks in East Sussex on the East Sussex Health Walks web page, the Brighton and Hove City Council Sport and Activity web pages, as well as guidance on walking for health on the NHS choices web pages.
