Student Parking

The University recognises the key role it has to play in caring for the environment and therefore we encourage the use of public transport by staff, students and visitors in order to reduce the environmental impact of commuting. More information on sustainable travel to the University can be found here.

Car parking on Campus is managed by our parking partner, APCOA. The University has parking spaces available for use by members of staff, students and visitors, and there is a permit system in place. Expand the relevant sections below to learn more.
