If you’re coming from further afield, daily ferries connect Hull to the Netherlands and Belgium, while Humberside Airport connects to the world via the hub at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Manchester, Leeds-Bradford and Doncaster-Sheffield airports are also easily accessible.



If you plan to stay overnight, Hull city centre offers a range of hotels, B&Bs and restaurants. The campus is 15 minutes by taxi and around 30 minutes by bus from the city centre. Accommodation is available closer to the campus.
