How to get to the University by Car


Active management of spaces

Our campus caters to a range of different users throughout the year, therefore we have to monitor the availability of parking and make changes to best respond to demand given the supply. To do this we might have to change the use and availability to certain users of some car parks, and in some cases reserve spaces to support specific needs or events. In the event of this happening, we hope you can understand this need, and help us to cater to all users by being flexible and parking in an alternative location.

Changes to the multi-storey & surface car park adjacent to the old Sports Centre/Junction building (including reserved visitors)

The impact of Covid-19 has changed how many of us will travel to and from campus. In the very short term, we anticipate that there will be an increase in students and other car users, who are not eligible for parking permits, to want to access campus by car. To accommodate an anticipated short-term change in car use:

  • The multi-storey car park by the old Sports Centre/Junction building (car park 8) will be converted into a ‘Pay by Phone’ only car park between 6am – 6pm, Monday – Friday; during these times, parking permits will not be valid in this car park.
    • This car park has been selected because it is centrally located and can serve a broad range of users.
    • Alternative nearby car parks are available to permit holders, such as Cryfield Village car park and car park 15

  • The surface car park directly outside the Junction building (car park 8A), formerly known as the 3-hour short stay and pre-reserved visitor car park, will be converted into a 4-hour short stay car park between 6am – 6pm, Monday – Friday, for ‘Pay by Phone’ users only; during these times, parking permits will not be valid in this car park.
    • The standard pre-reserved visitor scheme will no longer be in operation due to the expected significant reduction of short stay visitors.
    • If you do need to visit campus for short periods of time, our new ‘Pay by Phone’ car parks will be available to you.

Changes to the car park by the athletics track

  • The surface car park directly outside the athletics track (car park 12) will be converted into a ‘Pay by Phone’ only car park between 6am – 6pm, Monday – Friday; during these times, parking permits will not be valid in this car park.
    • This car park has been selected because it can serve a broad range of users.
    • Alternative nearby car parks are available to permit holders, such as Car Park 13 and Kirby Corner Car Park for staff.

Changes to the Coach Park by Bluebell

To create more parking capacity, the Coach Park will be converted into a 4-hour short stay ‘Pay by Phone’ only car park between 6am – 6pm, Monday – Friday; permits will not be valid in this car park during these times. On the days where there are pre-booked coaches arriving to campus, the car park will be closed to accommodate these arrivals; should this be the case, clear signage will be in place to let you know.
