There’s only a limited amount of onsite parking for cars and motorbikes, but we do have plenty of space for push bikes including free secure lockers, plus a drying room. For cars to park onsite, you will need to either purchase a permit* (£10 a term) or pay and display using cash or a payment app (50p for up to four hours, £1 all day).

Disabled parking bays are available and if you are a student who requires disabled parking please contact us to find out how we can best accommodate you. For further information, you can visit Accessable here.

*Please note: parking is on a first come, first served basis, and purchasing a permit does not guarantee you a space. If you wish to purchase a permit, you will need to complete an application form using your student ID number. You can purchase permits online through the permit management portal.
