Parking for departmental visitors

You should contact the department you are planning to visit to see if they can give you a visitor permit to park on campus or in the city centre.

If they can't, you will have to use the pay and display car parking and buy a ticket.

Visitor permit holders can park in the visitor spaces in the East car park, any pay and display car parks and any spaces designated for permit holders.

You must not use visitor permits in reserved spaces at any time. You can only park in disabled parking spaces if you are a Blue Badge holder.

You must always clearly display your permit, or ticket.

If you are having trouble finding a space in the East Car Park, please use the East overflow car park.

Parking charge notices

If you don't display a valid pay and display ticket, or violate the parking regulations, you may receive a parking charge notice. The charge is £60, but is reduced to £30 if you pay within 14 days.

Coach drop off zone

Use the coach bays at the entrance to the East Car Park and in front of the Sports Training Village to pick up and drop off passengers.

Coaches must not use the bus turning circle for parking or turning as it is constantly in use. You can't park a coach anywhere on campus.
