Car parking

Due to the limited parking spaces on the University campus a permit system has been introduced. Permits are only necessary for the Main Campus and not the Roger Bettles Sports Centre. Parking for Main Campus Sports Members are solely for the Danielle Brown Sports Centre Car Park, available using the designated green permit and 'SC'. Parking on other University car parks is not permitted during working hours.

During working hours (08.00 - 18.00, weekdays) parking will be limited to permit holders. Outside of these times, any grade of sports members will be able to park for free. Only Alumni and Associate members will be permitted to apply for a permit to park during working hours.

Barrier controls will be in place and you will need a proximity card to gain access through the car park barriers. The sports membership card will be activated for car park barrier access (Gate 1 and Main Campus Sports Centre Car Park barriers) if you are entitled to park during working hours.
