To avoid disappointment, visitor parking must be pre-booked by a University staff member, and costs £7 for the day. You will need to contact the department you're visiting to book a space and pay in advance (please note, this does not apply to undergraduate or postgraduate open days). Please come to the main entrance by the Parkinson Building. You can plan your route using Google Maps

Parking for disabled blue badge holders is available on campus for visitors. If you are a blue badge holder you need to email with your name, the date of your visit and your registration number. You are advised to enter the campus via the main barrier on Woodhouse Lane to show your badge. You can then be directed to the nearest available disabled parking bay to the area you are visiting.
