If you need accommodation, there are several hotels nearby.

There are three hotels near the station – the Holiday Inn Express  (1) is very close and the Mercure Royal  is next door to the station (2) (careful, there are two Mercure’s in Hull). The Holiday Inn at the Marina is nicer and quite near the station but you’d probably want a short taxi ride to the University (3). If you are driving, Laazat’s (4) is out of town but still near the University.  

From the station, there is either a short taxi ride or there are several bus lines that run between the City Centre and the University on Cottingham Road.
