Air travel

Via Stansted Airport

The most convenient way to get to to Hatfield is by bus, but there is also a train connection.

By bus: From Stansted airport, there are direct buses to the University of Hertfordshire. Two bus lines serve that route, Line 757 (to Oxford) and Line 717 (to Brighton). Travel time is 45 minutes. Each line runs approximately two-hourly during daytime.

To see the exact bus times from Stansted to UH, check the time tables, with start and goal locations Stansted Airport and Hatfield.

By train: Theoretically, the travel should take 1:15 hours, but one should take into account possible delays and waiting times. Take the Stansted Express towards London. In Tottenham Hale station, take the Picadilly Line (underground) westbound to Finsbury Park station.

From Finsbury Park station, there are regular trains to Hatfield station.

From Hatfield Station, one can take a cab (e.g. 01707 890095 or 07957 645188) or a bus to the College Lane Campus of the University of Hertfordshire (not the De Havilland one!).

During the day, there is also a fast connection from train station to the University campus via the 603 bus line.
