Finding Your Way To And Around Bucks New University

Buckinghamshire New University has a relatively small campus by university standards, but our sprawling complex of buildings in High Wycombe can be still hard to navigate, especially in your first semester or two. Lost at Bucks? Find our fabulous map below.

To get to Bucks New Uni in High Wycombe, take the train from Marylebone to High Wycombe station, and then walk to the uni. See the map from the station below. The walk will take around 8 minutes.

If you are driving, take exit four off the M40 and follow the signs into Wycombe. Keep an eye out for the big blue building (see below) that looks like an old fashioned TV set.

Direction to Wycombe by car

The building you are heading for is the big blue modern box below. Head for the entryway and you will find the Reception Desk immediately on your left.

Gateway Building. Reception Desk inside.

To find your way around campus, take a look at this handy map below - it's the one the university hands out on open days. It's the best map of campus I have found - and my own dog-eared copy was indispensible during my first few weeks at the Uni when I could hardly find my way to the car park.

The buildings that are mainly of interest to animators are these:
  • No 10 - Gateway Building - our arts and media hub. Most of our teaching happens here
  • No 9 - Timberlake. Here you will find Graphics on the ground floor, Foundation Art on the first floor, and Fine Art on the second. All good places to hang out and find inspiration.
  • No 3 - The East Wing. On the fourth floor, at E4.02, you will find the office of animation tutors David Creighton, Alex Williams (me) and Nick Brown.
Print out a copy and carry it around with you - and never get lost again.


For more on the experience of studying at Bucks New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days, take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK. Find out why we're giving free laptops to all our students, and why we give all our students free access to videos at Lynda.com. Also, see what financial assistance might be available to you. Learn which is better for animation, a PC or a Mac? Get hold of a copy of a map so you can find your way around campus, and learn aboutmotion capture at Bucks.
