Pay and display and short stay parking

Occasional drivers can use our pay-and-display car parks. We also have short stay bays where you can park for under an hour.

If you have blue badge or University disability permit, you can park in accessible bays.


Visit Days, Open Days and Graduation

For larger events there may be alternative transport and arrangements to and from campus and additional accessible parking areas. We suggest checking the events webpage for further details. You'll also be emailed further information by the event team.

Departmental guests

University departments can pay for a visitor to park on campus. Find out how on the departmental guest parking page.


Pay and display

Pay and display parking is free between 6pm and 8am Monday to Friday, on weekends and bank holidays.

You can pay via your mobile using PaySmarti.

Short stay parking

If you only need to park for a short time, there are delivery and short stay bays across campus where you can park free of charge for up to an hour.

Return is prohibited within one hour without the display of a valid ticket or permit.
