The University of Pretoria is located in the suburb of Hatfield, a bustling student hub with easy access by vehicle from the N1/N14 and by public transport via the Gautrain/Metrorail. Pretoria is served by three airports: the major one is O.R. Tambo, which is linked to Hatfield via the Gautrain; in addition Lanseria Airport is an hour’s drive away on the N14 and one can also now fly into Wonderboom National Airport from Cape Town. The latter two do not have as convenient onward travel arrangements as O.R. Tambo.
