Plymouth Marjon University is located in Derriford, just a few miles north of Plymouth in beautiful South West England. Plymouth is accessed via the A38 Devon Expressway which links to the motorway network at Exeter (M5).
From the M5, join the M4 to London (approx 4 hours drive) and South Wales, or the M6 to the Midlands and the North. Parking is available on campus. Our nearest airport is at Exeter and there is a good coach link between our two cities.
