Travelling to college

Farnham College tries to encourage students to use alternative modes of transport other than cars. We are aiming to reduce the amount of traffic as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle and living environment. 

Cycle racks and motorbike spaces are available at the college. Students travelling to the college by bicycle from local areas can plan their route by visiting the Surrey County Council website.

The college is easy to reach by road and can be reached via several routes, including the A31. There is a student car park on site, which provides free parking. If you park off-site, you must ensure you are parked legally and are not blocking residents' driveways.

Buses run from all over the local area in to Farnham Train Station, which is a 10-minute walk to the college. Visit Surrey County Council website for more information and bus timetables.

Young people studying at Farnham Sixth Form College can apply for a Student Fare Card. These cost £25 and entitle you to a third off of travel on trains and half-price travel on buses if you live in Surrey (excluding London Boroughs). For further information please visit their website. 

The Guildford College Group has joined forces with Stagecoach, who are offering subsidised Bus Fare Cards. Cards can be bought on a half-termly, termly or annual basis. See their website for further information.

If you are aged 16–25 and travelling by train, you may benefit from the Young Persons Rail Card by National Rail. Find out more about this card on their website. 

Trains for Farnham Sixth Form College stop at the main Farnham Train Station, a 10-minute walk away. Visit the national rail website or Trainline for more information and train times.
