Internal News - 21 September 2007

Arrival of freshers - sorry, no access to north carpark for staff

The University community is reminded that freshers will be arriving from the morning of Sunday 23 September 2007 and should all be on campus by the end of Monday 24 September.

As Monday is a normal working day, we anticipate traffic congestion and increased parking problems.

However, with co-operation, we hope to minimise these problems and ensure the arrivals process runs as smoothly as possible.

On both days special measures will be in place. From approximately 09.30 Sunday:

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 on Monday 24 September 2007.

Members of staff who normally use these parking spaces are asked to park in the West Car Park for this day only.

Request from security:
Please could drivers take extra care on the roads, so as to avoid student traffic marshalls, disorientated students and parents.

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