How to find us

UKSA’s main site is based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. We’re easily accessible from the mainland, with a regular ferry service that takes just 25 minutes to cross the Solent from Southampton. Our campus is based along the River Medina and is a 15-minute walk from the ferry terminal, or a very short taxi journey.

Our base camp address:

Arctic Road, Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO31 7PQ

Useful information when travelling to the Isle of Wight

The Red Jet Hi-speed passenger service links Southampton to West Cowes. Next door to the Red Jet terminal in Southampton, Red Funnel also runs a vehicle ferry to East Cowes. From East Cowes we are just a few minutes’ drive or walk away across the river.

A chain ferry next to the East Cowes ferry terminal connects both sides of the river which charges a small fee per crossing. This ferry can take cars and foot passengers and runs every 10-15 minutes.

There are frequent train services from London Waterloo to Southampton Central, where a shuttle bus connects the train station and the ferry terminal.
