We try really hard to minimise the level of disruption that may occur when expanding and renewing our campus, but sometimes, for example, we have to close specific areas or divert footpaths to carry out necessary work safely, and as quickly as possible.  

Keep up-to-date with current works so you can better plan your journey to, from and around campus.


Full closure of Kimberlow Lane at Sports Village

From Monday 18 September to Tuesday 3 October Kimberlow Lane will be fully closed near the Sports Village/new nursery. There will be no vehicle access direct from Hull Road to campus during this time. Access to the Sports Village will still be possible from Field Lane. There will be no impact on any car parks.

Yorkshire Marathon car park closures - 12 to 16 October 2023

Campus will be extremely busy with limited access and restricted parking from Thursday 12 October to Monday 16 October due to the Yorkshire Marathon. Over the weekend, the Stables and Alcuin car parks will remain open to staff and students and Campus East parking will not be affected. See full list of car park closures and restrictions.

Student Centre works - ongoing

  • The work to prepare the ground for the new Student Centre is continuing with the strip out of the former Security Centre, IT and Student Admin buildings. We expect this to complete by the end of September. The internal area of the Security Centre has already been demolished and following the strip out, the IT building and then the Student Admin building will be demolished through October and November.

Vanbrugh Way works - June until mid September 

Work to replace/divert district heating pipes and electrical cables on Vanbrugh Way is continuing and the road will remain fully/partially closed until the beginning of September. Accessible bays in car park 2.2 remain open as do those outside the Information Centre.

Whilst this work is being completed we ask pedestrians and cyclists to take partial care in the area.

Student Centre car park closures - from 3 May 2023

Car park 2.4 (Campus Central) is now partially closed to allow safe demolitions to take place for the new Student Centre. The nearest alternative car parks are:

The accessible bays near the former Security Centre are now blocked off but the accessible bays near the Spring Lane Building will be unaffected at this stage. Additional accessible bays have been provided alongside the hoarding. The route to the lift and library remains level and clear.

Campus East nursery works - November 2022 to December 2023

Since November 2022, the footpath adjacent to the new campus east nursery site has been closed and will remain closed until December 2023. An alternative route is available by following the path across the road to the Sports Village.

Derwent P-Block works - November 2022 to early 2024

P-Block in Derwent College will remain empty and inaccessible to students while accommodation improvements are taking place. The footpath that runs from University Road to the car park at the rear of Derwent College is closed to allow for access to the block. Pedestrians should use the main pavement next to University Road as an alternative.
