How to get to the Faculty of Divinity

If you are coming by train, Cambridge main station is the nearest station to the Faculty, and we recommend taking the Universal U bus line to the West Road stop (also called the University Library stop). The timetable for the Universal U bus is here. If you are arriving by coach, the Faculty is a 25-30 minute walk from the bus station on Drummer Street.

If you are coming by car, there is very limited on street Pay & Display parking on West Road (up to 4 hours) and Sidgwick Avenue (up to 8 hours). However, parking is extremely limited, so if you intend to park for the full day, rather than just dropping or collecting, we recommend using the Park and Ride service at Madingley Road and taking the Universal U bus service from Eddington Avenue (a short walk from the Park and Ride) to the West Road stop, which is across the road from the Faculty.


If you no longer wish to attend the session, you can cancel your booking up to 10 calendar days before the event date and be entitled to a full refund of the ticket price. Please note that the 10 calendar days’ notice is not inclusive of the event date. Refunds will take approximately two weeks to process. To cancel your place please email with the following details:

  • Order number (not applicable to funded places)
  • The name on the booking
