Special Arrangements: Coach Park

Car park 2 (off Bluebell roundabout) is now a dedicated coach park. Remodelling works to adapt the existing car park bays into bays that are suitable for coaches and minibuses will be finished later this summer.

All coaches should now drop off and collect at the coach park. If you have a coach coming to campus, please contact to confirm the arrangements.

A small parking area will be maintained in the coach park for Residential Life Team members living close by.


The coach park has come about in recognition of the large and increasing numbers of coaches and mini-buses coming to site, and the fact that we'd like to grow that number, bringing in coach parties rather than multiple cars.

The location at Bluebell roundabout was based on 4 driving factors:

  1. It's accessed directly off Gibbet Hill Road, reducing traffic on University Road.
  2. It already works really well when Stoneleigh park and ride is in operation.
  3. It's within easy walking distance of The Arts Centre and Central Campus.
  4. It will support multiple visiting sports groups arriving at the new Sports Hub.

The campus Bus Interchange is for scheduled bus services only.

Alternative arrangements can be facilitated for some Arts Centre shows aimed at under-8s only.
