Car parking: Where can I park?

There are some new car parking arrangements in place in time for the autumn term. Please see our official announcement for more information.


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 have a visitor coming, you may want to reserve a space for them. There are reservations available in Car park 15 (behind the IMC) for external visitors, every week day until 2pm.

Special arrangements

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 enviroment, drivers can't always expect to park in their preferred location, and some flexibility about where to park is necessary.

Here are details on some of the special arrangements currently in place:

New permit holder spaces on the Science Park 
From 1 October, there is additional temporary parking next to Cafcass on the Science Park, available to University parking permit holders and accessible via Milburn Hill Road on the A45 side of campus.

New permit holder spaces at the Beehive at Westwood Business Park
The recent relocation of some professional service departments to the Beehive frees up some permit holder parking spaces on campus. There is also some additional parking available here which may be useful for people travelling from the Solihull/Birmingham direction.

Westwood North now takes flexi-pay scratch cards.
