How to get here...
From the north or south: leave the M6 motorway at junction 33 and take the A6 north towards Lancaster and continue for 1 3/4 miles - passing through the village of Galgate. After leaving Galgate, turn right at the second set of traffic lights into the University main drive. (Do not turn right at the first set of traffic lights - signposted to Alexandra Park).
At the roundabout at the top of the drive, turn right for the Management School. The Management School is the large glass-fronted building, located just past Gillow Avenue (the third turning on the left after the roundabout).
Visitors to Lancaster University Management School should park in Gillow Avenue (third left after the roundabout at the top of the University Drive). You will need either a valid one-day visitor scratch card or a pay and display sticker available from the machine in Gillow Avenue.
Ticket machines dispense tickets for 2 hours at £2. From January 2011 chip and pin card payment facilities will be available at each machine. All-day visitor scratch cards are available from the LUMS Reception or Security Reception on Bowland Avenue priced at £5 each.
There are direct rail links between Lancaster and London (Euston), Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford and major cities in Scotland. The single journey between London and Lancaster takes between 3 and 3 1/2hours. To plan your rail journey, consult the National Rail Timetable.

We recommend that, whenever possible, overseas visitors reach Lancaster via Manchester International Airport. From the airport, there are a number of travel options:
- There is a direct rail link from the Manchester International Airport (terminal 2) to Lancaster, (total journey time is between 1 l/2 and 2 l/2 hours, depending on the time of day). This is our recommended option.
- There is a shuttle bus from the Main Bus Station near the International Arrivals to either Manchester Piccadilly rail station or (better) Manchester Victoria rail station (total journey time is between 1 1/4 and 2 3/4 hours, depending on the time of day).
- By car: take M56 motorway from junction 5 and then join the M6 at junction 20a (North) and proceed as in By Road above.
- The University will be running a coach from the airport direct to the University, on one day during Introductory Week. Unfortunately places cannot be guaranteed on the coach.
