From the 1st-7th October 2018, the Unviersity is celebrating Liftshare Week 2018 by running a week-long campaign to turn Lancashire and Cumbria based staff and students into ‘super commuters’ through promoting the free-to-use Liftshare scheme. The University’s bespoke car sharing scheme reduces congestion, helps reduce the environmental impact and can save the average commuter up to £1,000 a year!
Find people to share your car, bike or walking journey with Cumbria Car Share. As a student, you can use it to offer or find lifts for journeys to university, placements or elsewhere. It's also available for staff.
Register as part of the university group with your university email address to get started.
Rent a bike
We have bicycles available to rent at our Carlisle and Lancaster campuses. For £50 (inc. VAT) you can rent a Trek FX7.0 bike, a lock, mudguards and a set of front and back lights for any period of time, as long as it's returned by the end of June.
To request a bike, talk to the accommodation officer on your campus.Request a bike
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
