Google Maps is the recommended platform to use for following directions to campus.

If coming from the south (e.g., Dunfermline/Edinburgh way) follow the M90 and A92 to A910 in Fife. Take the A910 exit from A92. Continue along A910, and drive to St Brycedale Avenue in Kirkcaldy.  

If coming from the north (e.g., Glenrothes/Cupar) follow either the A92 or A915 until you reach Randolph roundabout, then follow the A921. Next turn right onto Dunniker Road, then left onto Coal Wynd, turn left onto Townsend Place, and continue onto St Brycedale Avenue, then Fife College will then be on the right. 

Parking at Kirkcaldy campus is very limited, so we therefore encourage visitors to take alternative transport to this campus where possible. 

If alternative transport modes are not feasible, and you do decide to drive to campus, the closest parking is the Railway Station carpark, which is free of charge, and only a 5-minute walk away from campus.
