Travel information

If you take the train to Coventry, you will be able to get either a bus (number 11, 11U or 12X) or taxi from Coventry station to the University of Warwick--- taxis leave from immediately outside the station and buses from several stops a bit further around past the taxi rank. You will need exact change for some buses--- a return fare to Warwick University is 4 pounds. A taxi costs about 10 pounds one way.

Buses arrive at the bus interchange near to the Student Union and Arts Centre at Warwick University--- a taxi is likely to drop you off in a similar area. From there it is a 5-10 minute walk along University Road to the Maths Institute, see these maps.

See also Warwick University's pages on 'How to get the University' by train and bus.
