Getting to UM

University of Malta main campus is situated in Msida, next to Mater Dei Hospital, a prime location reached easily by bus from all the localities. Some of the other UM campuses such as Junior College, Gozo and Valletta are also well served by transport links.

The following is a list of various sustainable transport methods you may use to reach UM Msida Campus.   

We encourage UM students and members of the staff to walk on their daily commute whenever possible. For this reason, we offer a series of walking route maps from different localities around the UM Msida Campus. We would also like to invite you to participate in this project facebook.com/walkingmalta to report your walking experience. 

 

If you have a bicycle and cycle regularly, why don’t you use it for University?

Depending on your locality on this map you may find different routes leading to University.  

There are various bicycle racks where you can secure it and there are also free shower and locker facility. All these facilities are found in the Bicycle Facility Map.

If you own a vehicle, you can carry the bicycle in the car and use it to cycle to University. If you use public transport you can use a fold-able bicycle which you can carry on the bus while commuting.

You don't have a bicycle?....don't worry! you can make use of the NextBike bicycles which are situated on Campus. A map with NextBike stations can be found here

May I remind you to cycle safely, to observe all the traffic regulations, to include lights on the bicycle and wear reflective and protective clothing. 

Electric Bicycles and Scooters are now available on Campus in tallinja docking station next to Vjal Tessie Camilleri.
