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

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.

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.
