Car parking: Where can I park?

Temporary suspension of parking deductions & car park closures

There is no charge for parking at the current time. As part of our planning to welcome more staff and students back to Campus we’re considering when to reintroduce parking charges. We’ll update our community when we know more.

For both your safety and security, the following car parks have been closed or partially closed:

Science Park

  • Lynchgate Car Park

Westwood Campus

  • Car Park 12
  • Car Park 14a
  • Kirby Corner Car Park (partially closed)

Please view our car parking map for guidance on which car parks remain accessible.


    If you're visiting us, take a look at our guide on how to get here and where to park:

    How to get to the University by Car

    If you are a member of staff and have an external visitor coming to campus, you may want to reserve a space for them. There are reservations available on Central Campus for external visitors, every week day until 3pm.

    Active management of spaces

    We actively manage the car parking spaces available, looking at the campus holistically to best respond to demand given the supply. This means we often change use and restrict availability to certain users, reserving spaces to support specific needs or events. In a busy campus environment, drivers can't always expect to park in their preferred location, and some flexibility about where to park is necessary.
