Student Parking

We need to close the Lower Ford student car park from Monday evening 23/11/20 for emergency repairs, as it currently suffering due to the recent wet weather. We need students to use the Gulson Road/Beatrice Shilling car park instead, which has plenty of space. The Lower Ford car park will remain closed until such time as we can make some repairs to the surface.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Car parks

Student parking is charged at £2 per day in all University car parks. There is also an option to park for up to 4 for £1 with no return the same day.

Staff are not permitted to park in the student Abandon Car Park on the corner of Cox Street, or the student area of the Mile Lane car park; these car parks are solely for the use of our students.
