Travelling to the university

We're asking LJMU staff and students to rethink how and when they travel. The university encourages you to walk or cycle wherever possible, especially if you live within a mile or two of our campuses, this ensures public transport is left for those who live further away.

Find out more about the Rethink Travel campaign or follow Merseytravel on Twitter. You can also find out more about your travel options for getting to LJMU.

Face coverings on public transport

Passengers must wear a face covering when travelling on public transport. If you have a health condition or disability that prevents you from wearing a face covering, you can use Merseyrail's face covering exemption card.
