Students travel to University Centre Sparsholt from all over the region, so we aim to make the journey as easy and cost effective as possible. Whether you’re getting the train from Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton or Basingstoke or the bus from across Hampshire and the county borders, we’ll help you find the best way to get into University.

Please check the map and route listings below for your nearest location and price details, and if you need further information please contact our transport team on 01962 797346 or If you prefer to bring your car to Sparsholt, student parking is available onsite. Parking is limited at Winchester University Halls of Residence so students living there may find it easier to park their cars here at Sparsholt and use public transport in the week, collecting their cars at the weekend.
