Our campus is easily accessible whether you are travelling to us by bike, foot, public transport or car.

QMU campus is located close to Musselburgh, east of Edinburgh city centre. The best way to access the campus is through public transport or walking/cycling. We have Musselburgh train station at our front door and bus services stopping on campus. National cycle Route 1 provides direct access via active travel.

Sustainability is a key element of the campus' design and we further encourage it with a Green Travel Policy. Staff, students and visitors are encouraged to travel sustainably, car parking permits are awarded based on need. For example, those with caring responsibilities will be given priority.

If you are a visitor to QMU and need to travel by car, please ask your contact within the university to arrange parking permission, and give them your vehicle registration number.
