We offer a regular and dedicated bus service provided by First Bus, which operates between Storthes Hall Park and the main university campus at Queensgate during the academic year. The bus service operates every 30 minutes Monday to Friday, with a more frequent service during peak times. At weekends the bus operates less frequently and stops on the High Street in Huddersfield too. Check out the timetable for times.
A less frequent service operates outside of term time. The service ceases completely at the end of the 44-week contract with DIGS in July and starts again for the academic year in September.
For 2021/22 your bus pass will be free and there will be leaflets available when you move in, which detail how to download your free pass. You will need to download the ‘First Bus’ app from the App Store or Google Play and select the route 399/398. Please be aware that the pass offers free travel until 9.00pm. After 9.00pm a surcharge of £1.50 will be applied for a single trip, and £2.50 for return trips.
The bus will stop at Morrisons on the way to town if you wish, just ring the bell, or let the driver know. You can hail the bus back to Storthes from stop C on Penistone Road.
Timetables are available in the reception area at Storthes Hall Park and in the accommodation office at university as well as on the First Bus App.
