Oviedo Bus lines C, K, F and D provide daily and weekend service from the campus (traveling along Julián Clavería, Fuertes Acevedo and Avenida del Cristo) throughout the city. You can check the schedule in the Bus web page. Single tickets are bought in the bus (1.20 €), while bus passes (10 tickets, 9 €) in most newspaper kiosks and tobacconist's.

Either from the bus station or the train station, there are close stops of bus line C2 (to Facultades). With a lot of luggage it would be more reasonable to take a taxi (it will cost around 7 €).
