How to get here


Shuttle bus to South Kensington Campus 
A free 35-seat shuttle bus runs hourly Monday–Friday from the South Kensington Campus (picking up outside the Central Library on Imperial College Road) from 8.10 to 17.10. The route also loops to the Hammersmith Campus. Timetable and pick-up locations 
By public transport

The nearest near London Underground (tube) stations are:

  • White City station: 3 minute walk from south site, 7 minute walk from north site (Central line)
  • Wood Lane station: 6 minute walk (Circle line, Hammersmith and City line)
  • Shepherd’s Bush station: under 20 minute walk (Central line, Overground, National Rail connections)

Many buses run through White City, taking you directly to many destinations in the local area and as far afield as Clapham Junction, Hounslow and Golders Green. Whatever mode of public transport suits you, you can plan your route with the Transport for London journey planner.

The Campus is also close to a planned station for the new HS2 rail service at Old Oak Common, which will provide quick access to Heathrow Airport, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester. 
By bicycle

The section of the Westway on the west side of Wood Lane has an off-road cycle path running parallel to the main road.

The closest airport is Heathrow. From there, a taxi or other private road transport takes about 35 minutes to reach the Campus. By public transport, you can use the Heathrow Express and the tube to get to Wood Lane station in about 45 minutes.


By car
Imperial’s White City Campus is next to the  Westway (A40), a key route into the heart of London. It also takes you outwards to the North Circular ring road (A406) surrounding central London, and beyond that to the M25 motorway which circles Greater London. There is parking for external, registered visitors and for maintenance contractors who need to access the site. There are also permanent parking spaces for staff and students based at the White City Campus who are registered disabled.
