Moreton Road

Our newest campus is located on a residential housing estate, just off the Moreton Road in Buckingham.  The University bought a block of flats and several houses when the estate was being built.  This accommodation would suit more mature students, Post Graduates, or those of you who appreciate the quieter things in life.  It is a little bit further away – a 15 minute walk to the town centre, a 25 minute walk to the Hunter Street campus.  However the properties are very nice and have a modern feeling about them.  The kitchens all have washing machines and there are clothes lines in the gardens.  Car parking is on the side of the road; bicycles can be kept in the gardens.
