Life on campus
Term-time bus services
The U1 service runs during the autumn term until Friday 10 December.
From Tuesday 30 November, face masks are mandatory on all public transport, including the University Bus.
We run 2 free bus services to campus – the U1 takes a circular route around Portsmouth, and the U2 goes to the Langstone sports site and back at certain times of year.
The University bus service is free if you show your University ID card. If the bus is full, you'll need to wait for the next one. No alcohol is allowed on the bus service.
