Andover College is situated within half a mile of both the bus and train stations, ensuring it is easily accessible to students from both Andover and the surrounding area.
Andover College offers a number of subsidised tickets on Campus buses, Stagecoach buses and South West trains. The annual cost is variable dependent upon your preferred travel choice. All passes are payable in ten affordable interest free monthly installments if you apply before the start of term. You may also be able to apply to the learner support funds for assistance.
College Direct Service
If you require travel to Andover College and there is no public service from your area to get you to the College, it may be possible for the College to subsidise a Campus service from your area. This will be dependent on student numbers and financial viability. It is important to register your interest when you receive registration forms from the College. Areas previously covered include The Wallops, The Winterbournes, Pewsey, Broughton and Upavon.
Deadline for College Travel
It is important that your request for travel is received as soon as possible and before 15th July 2017.
When Will My College Pass Arrive?
If your travel pass is ordered before the deadline you will usually be able to collect this on the first day of term. Unfortunately, if you ordered after the deadline there will be a delay receiving any passes. For public service passes and campus bus, if you ordered before the beginning of term these will usually be received in the second week of term. If you have ordered after the start of term these are usually available within three weeks. The availability of the campus direct service will be dependent upon student numbers and financial viability and any delays in application may affect this.
