Rent a moped
If your usual home address is in Cumbria and you face difficulties getting to our University, it might be possible to loan you a moped at a heavily discounted rate. The moped could be used to get to one of our campuses or to get you to a bus stop or train station. You can get more information on the student portal.Find out more
