Travelling to Brock
We are easily accessible by train or via our extensive College bus network.
Travel costs for the 2017/18 academic year are detailed below (rail prices pending). Rail and bus passes are purchased through the College’s online BrockShop and instalment plans are available for annual and termly passes at no extra cost.
Applicants seeking financial assistance from their Local Authority or a College bursary are advised to wait until they have their funding agreed before ordering a travel pass.
Travelling by bus
Our extensive bus network affords travel to Brockenhurst from Lymington, Christchurch, Wimborne, Salisbury, Ringwood, Fordingbridge, Totton and the Waterside plus numerous towns and villages in between. The Ringwood area is serviced by an additional lunchtime bus service (£2.00 charge).
Brockenhurst has appointed First Bus as its service provider for the 2017/18 academic year and is pleased to announce reductions in the cost of annual and termly bus passes.
WiFi and USB charging will be available on all College buses and termly bolt-on passes for use on the wider public bus networks in Southampton (First Bus) and Bournemouth (Yellow Bus) will be available for 2017/18, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For all College buses, students must have either an official Brockenhurst pass or a temporary pass (available from the BrockShop during opening hours). If they have neither, students will be asked to pay the standard fare for that service (payable to the driver) or to arrange alternative transport.
Travelling by train
2017/18 rail passes will be available for purchase via the online BrockShop from 17/07/2017. Academic season passes from all stations within the south western rail network will be available with pricing on a station by station basis (as opposed to the zones used in 2016/17). Please see 17/18 Rail Costs in the ‘Useful Downloads’ section below for termly and annual prices and instalment plans.
The validity of academic season passes is likely to be extended for 2017/18 to include evening, weekend and half-term rail travel. Discounted annual (12 month) passes for use on public bus networks in Southampton (First Bus) and Bournemouth (Yellow Bus) will also be available for 2017/18, please email email@example.com for more information.
We hope to have pre-ordered tickets available for collection during enrolment (25/08/2017 – 30/08/2017) however due to the ongoing rail franchise change – from Stagecoach South West Trains to First MTR South Western – external printing of tickets is unlikely to commence before 21/08/2017. We will update students who have purchased a rail pass through the BrockShop as to any developments by text/email.
Walking between the station and the College takes just 7 minutes
Travelling by car
Car parking permits for the student car park can be purchased online from the Brock Shop.
An annual permit costs up to £40. Students must certify that they are in possession of valid insurance and MOT documents.
A one way system is in place – all drivers must enter the site via the main College entrance and leave via North Road.
Travel for International Students
International students who will be completing a full academic year at the College will have a travel pass included in their fees, this may differ for those only completing a short term course.
