London Underground (tubes) and buses are expected to run as normal.

If you are unsure whether your journey will be affected, please use the TfL journey planner to find out more. You can also check the latest status of tube, rail and trams.

The university will be open as usual but some access points to our buildings may be closed. Please look out for signage directing you to the nearest entrance or exit.

If you are travelling to and from campus or for the winter break, please check the National Rail and Transport for London websites before you travel. Tubes, buses and taxis will be very busy on the strike days and you should allow extra time for your journey.

Please also note that there will be National Rail strike action on Friday 6 January and Saturday 7 January 2023. For those of you with exams/assessments scheduled from Monday 9 January 2023, you may wish to allow extra time to travel back to campus.

Please also be aware that some National Rail services may start later on the days following strike action.
