At the Easton campus, our students travel from all across Norfolk and our neighbouring counties. There are several options for student travel.
Getting to college is easy. There are a selection of direct bus routes to the campus, plus non-direct routes via Norwich from across Norfolk. Details for bus routes, stops and times of travel from most locations are available below.
We strongly advise that you investigate season tickets offered directly from the operator, as these are likely to be cheaper and more flexible than our Norfolk County Council pass. Download our guide to discounts and passes offered by local operators (pdf 215kb)
Most of the routes not provided by the college will bring you into Norwich city centre, where you can catch a bus from Castle Meadow, Norwich bus station, Norwich rail station, St Stephen’s or Newmarket Road direct to the college.
For the suggested options from your town/village, see our alphabetical list below:

Students too old to qualify under the post16 travel scheme (19 years or over) can only apply for a Norfolk County Council travel pass if travel would be on one of the routes funded by Easton College (see blue routes on map).
For all routes provided by other bus providers please contact the operators directly - see links below
NCC’s Post16 travel scheme
You will be required to pay towards any post16 transport. For post16 payment information visit cost and payment.
The Fusion Ticket lets you travel on most bus services within the area shown on the map below. It’s valid all day (from 0500 to 0200 the next morning) for as many journeys as you like, and you can pass it on to a friend or relative to use too.
If you are aged between 16-25, or 26 and over and in full-time education, for just £30 per year you can save 1/3 OFF most rail fares with the 16-25 Railcard.
If you do not qualify for assistance under the post16 travel scheme or would like greater flexibility in travel to work, training or further education, Kickstart may be able to assist with a moped loan.
For further information visit the Kickstart website.
When should I apply?
Please ensure you apply for your travel pass in good time - contact the appropriate council or bus operator directly for further information on their specific timescales. You do not need to wait until your course offer is confirmed or your bursary application has been processed (if applicable).
First Bus X1
This is a public bus which links Easton village to Peterborough in the west and Lowestoft in the East. Students travelling from Wisbech, Kings Lynn and Lowestoft will normally catch this bus. The X1 also links the college to Norwich, with buses leaving from the Des Amis bus stop in Easton every half an hour.
For students with additional needs or disabilities that are unable to travel by bus please contact your local county council for information about specialist transport for post-16 education.
Is there any financial support available?
There is a College Bursary Fund available which can be applied for. If eligible, the bursary may be able to help with travel costs, college meals and other expenses. Please be aware that no bursary payments are made prior to students commencing their course, therefore any payments due before September will need to be made up front.
Can I drive my own vehicle to campus?
Students can choose to bring their own vehicles on site. There is plenty of parking available and all car parks are free. Students will need to register their vehicle details at the point of enrolment and collect a parking permit from the Student Centre. This will need to be displayed at all times when on-site.
Is accommodation available?
Accommodation comprises of single study bedrooms in halls or around the estate - all with wifi connection. It is provided to support students who would otherwise find college attendance difficult due to their location, lack of public transport or where duties are required as part of their course of study. The halls of residence consist of four blocks which are situated around the residential courtyard. Three blocks contain single study bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities. The fourth block consists of 20 able body rooms and two disabled rooms. These are single study bedrooms with en-suite facilities.
