Armidale is a beautiful city we’re here to help you find your way around.
We know as a student, your days are full, and your nights can be just as busy.
To make things easier and safer, we’ve got a range of transport options for UNE students to ensure that getting from A to B is both convenient and safe.
Intensive School Shuttle Service
If you’re studying online, there’s a good chance that you’ll need to visit our wonderful campus for Intensive Schools.
We want to make your visit to the Armidale campus as stress-free as possible – after all, you’re here to get in all those practical and face-to-face requirements of your degree, and not worry about how you’re going to get there.
In 2019, thanks to the Student Services & Amenities Fee, we’ve brought back airport and train station pick-ups to your accommodation.

We also offer a fixed-route shuttle service during official intensive periods, which goes into town (close to your accommodation) and to UNE.

This is available all year with the exception of public holidays and the Christmas break.
