All York St. John students are free to drop in for a chat, give us a call, send us an email or use the instant messaging service.


Our flat can be found on the Heslington West campus of UoY, at Grimston House.  From Lord Mayors Walk, our flat is:

• 30 minutes on foot

• 10 minutes by bike

• 5 minutes by car

You can also take the 66 bus from Merchantgate to the UoY Library, which is a short walk from the flat. The UoY campus map has a detailed view of the area around Grimston House. Alternatively, consider dropping in at The Haven, a mental health service open from 6pm-11pm. This is situated on 30 Clarence Street, in close proximity to the YSJ Campus.
