Graduation Park & Ride

Due to ceremonies taking place during the working week, there is not space for visitor parking on campus so we operate a free Park & Ride facility for graduands and their guests from Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LG) direct to campus each day of the ceremonies. With the exception of blue badge holders, all graduation parking is situated at Stoneleigh Park and, therefore, graduands and guests should travel directly to the Park & Ride facility and not to campus. Stoneleigh Park will open from 07.30 and buses will commence at 08.00 and run throughout the day until 19:15 when the last return service will run from campus to Stoneleigh Park. See below for directions to Stoneleigh Park. The coaches and buses operated for the park an ride are fully accessible and have storage for pushchairs etc.

Buses will pick-up from Stoneleigh Park, drop-off at the coach park and return to Stoneleigh Park only. The walking distance from the drop off point to Warwick Arts Centre is approximately 5 minutes, but there will be a minibus available to pick up guests from the Coach Park and drop off at the Bus Interchange next to the Arts Centre if more convenient for guests.

Permits are not required for the Park & Ride facility, but you will be asked how many spaces you require as part of registration to help with our planning.

Make sure you arrive at Stoneleigh Park with sufficient time to arrive on campus (journey is 15-20 minutes). We strongly advise that you board a bus no later than 09.00 for the 11.00 ceremony, and 13.00 for the 15.00 ceremony as all graduands and guests must be seated at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start time.

If you or your guest(s) require parking spaces for blue badge holders you should indicate this when you register online.
