Find out about driving to the University campus for Undergraduate Open Days and where you can park when you arrive.

The roads in and around Bath can get very busy, particularly on Open Days, and our campus car parks can fill up fast.

In 2024, our Open Day on Saturday 15 June also coincides with moving-out day for our current students, so the car parks will be busier than usual.

Before you decide to park on campus, think about other ways you could travel to the Open Day.
