Walking to work is recommended for those living within two miles of the University. Cars consume most fuel and pollute more at the start of their journey when the engine is cold, therefore, walking even for short journeys can reduce the amount of CO2 emissions by a disproportionate amount.
Birmingham City Council also provide FREE walking (& cycling) maps of Birmingham.
Why not try combining walking with another mode of travel, for example walking to the train station rather than driving. You could also consider walking to our Selly Oak campus which is only a 20-30 minute walk away. Alternatively, you could get off a stop earlier and walk.
The University benefits from good pedestrian links with the surrounding area and clear internal routes and footpaths to allow people to find their way around the large campus easily and safely.
The canal towpath which has been recently resurfaced provides good links to Birmingham City Centre and Selly Oak as well as further afield.
