Arrival in York:
When you arrive at York railway station, proceed through the main doors to find a covered area with two road lanes. To take a taxi, proceed to the left to find a taxi queue (waiting line) by the nearest lane. A taxi costs around £6 (cash only), and you should ask for 1 Barbican Road, York. Alternatively, you can take a number 10 bus outside the train station, costing around £1. Ask for Walmgate Bar bus stop, walk under the Bar (it’s the gate on the wall), and the road immediately to the right is Barbican Road. The Bible college is located on the opposite side of Barbican Road. The office is behind the row of terraced houses, which make up the Bible college accommodation.
Students should arrange their travel to arrive on campus at the earliest on the Friday before the semester begins. (Check the semester dates to confirm.)
Students who arrive early can find accommodation through VisitYork, TripAdvisor, Bed and Breakfast UK, Late Rooms, or Booking.com.
Unfortunately, there isn't space on campus for parents or other family members accompanying students. They can find accommodation through the websites listed above.
If you have any problems at all, please telephone us on 01904 733 888. Remember if you are calling from abroad, there is a time zone difference. We divert calls outside office hours to another number so we are always available for you.
