Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where is the nearest cashpoint? Why isn’t there one on campus?

A: The college has a contract with a bank that means they need a whole room if we have one on campus, so the college prefer to keep rooms for teaching and other needs, especially in other college sites. There are some near all of our sites, though.

Near Main Campus and Trinity Green: There are several free ATMs near the main college campus and Trinity Green campus (up to 5 minutes away). The Premier convenience store and Greggs bakery on Great Horton Road both have free to use cash machines. Don't use the ones by the ATC and Omar Khan's, as these charge nearly £2! There is a free Natwest cash machine in the University Richmond building entrance, accessible from Richmond Road opposite Subway, Burger Time, and Pepe's.

Near Centenary Square: There is a free cashpoint next to the Buffet Central restaurant off Centenary Square, at the Tesco and Post Office on Sunbridge Road, or many banks in town.

Near City Training Services and Forster College: If you head down Chapel Street there is a cash machine in the convenience store on Leeds Road, or across the road from there in the Vicar Lane leisure centre. There are several cash machines in the Broadway shopping centre.

Near Bowling Back Lane: The nearest cash point is on Wakefield Road at the BP garage heading away from town on the other side of the road, which is 5-10 minutes walk depending on the traffic.

Q: Where is the Students’ Union bar? I heard on the internet there is one!

A: We don't currently run a Students' Union bar at Bradford College. Alcohol is served with food in the Grove Restaurant, David Hockney Building if you have ID. There are also loads of bars and pubs right next door to us!

Bradford College's main campus and Trinity Green are in the West End district of Bradford, centred around the Alhambra Theatre which is opposite the Advanced Technology Centre. The bars in this district currently include Flares Reflex, Circle, Tequila, the Bier Keller, the Brew Haus, the Westleigh Hotel, and the Sir Titus Salt, as well as cafes and restaurants.

College students are welcome in the University bars on Longside Lane / Student Central - but you need to bring ID other than your college card, such as an NUS extra card or a driving license.
