The term two pass is valid from Monday 29 April – Saturday 22 June.

Updates to the bus pass

We’ve made some changes based on your feedback and now your bus pass will be uploaded to your student card, so there’s no additional paper pass. All you have to do is tap your student card on the reader when you get on the bus.

How to activate your bus pass on your student card

You will need to make sure that you have activated the bus pass on your student card before you start using it for the bus.

  1. After you have purchased the bus pass you will receive an email when your pass has been updated
  2. Once it has been updated, hold your student card against any card reader in Oadby Student Village social space (e.g. Olive Banks Study Space) for about ten seconds until the reader shows green.
  3. Alternatively you can hold the card against any of the attendance monitors on campus used for seminars/ lectures.
  4. Once you have done this your card can be used on the bus

Please allow at least one working day for your card to be updated after you have purchased the bus pass.

About the Oadby Shuttle Bus Trial

To help you get to campus, the University is trialling a new shuttle bus service. We have been working together with our Students Union to create this affordable option focused on getting you to and from your lectures.

The new trial shuttle service is provided by Centrebus and runs between Oadby Student Village and the main University campus from Monday to Friday. The service will operate between 7am and 8pm Mon- Fri, with more buses at peak hours. For Term Two there is now also the option to buy a pass that includes Saturday travel which will run every 30 minutes from 10.00 – 19.00* (*excluding 14.00-15.00)There are no pay as you go options for this service, you will need a term two ticket to use the bus.

The bus will pick up and collect from one bus stop on Manor Road, the map below shows the location of the bus stop (look for the orange bus icon).

Other options for commuting to campus

  • Walking to main campus takes about 30-40 minutes, depending on how fast you walk!
  • Cycling to campus is easy, with lots of bike racks in Oadby Student Village and a large underground secure bike store on main campus. The easiest route is to follow the cycle lanes via London Road.
  • The Arriva Bus (U1/U2/U3) is a term-time bus service operated throughout the academic year. This service runs between Oadby Student Village, the University Campus and the City Centre. Check out the Arriva website for timetables and ticket options. There is also the 31 service from London Road (near to Racecourse) which runs into the City Centre.

We want your feedback

At this point, the new shuttle bus is in a trial period for term one only, we will be working with our Students Union to get your feedback on how this service runs and what you want from your bus service in the future. We will be holding focus groups and asking for feedback via surveys so please make sure you get involved and tell us what you think. The service will not necessarily continue into term three but we will keep you updated on what options are available.
