Freshers arrival

Internal News - 20 September 2006

Arrival of freshers

The University community is reminded that freshers will start arriving from the morning of Monday 25 September 2006 and should all be on campus by the end of Wednesday afternoon.

As these are normal working days we anticipate traffic congestion and increased parking problems, however with co-operation we hope to minimise the problems and ensure the operation runs as smoothly as possible.

The majority of students are expected to arrive on Tuesday, when special measures will be in place. From approximately 9.30am on Tuesday:

Congestion will be at its worst along the North Access Road as students unload from cars outside residences. Once unloaded, drivers will be asked to park in the formal car parks.

All staff are asked for their patience and forbearance at this time. If possible please do not bring cars onto campus. (A good time to try public transport, car share or ride your bike?!)

Note for Northern car park permit holders.
The Northern Car Parks will be CLOSED for ALL staff parking from Monday 25 September to Wednesday 27 September.
Staff who would normally use these parking spaces are asked to park in the Western Car Park for these three days only.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding and apologies for the inconvenience.
