Car Parking at the University

There are six car parks on campus with a mixture of permit and public parking.

Each car park has a letter, corresponding to its position on the campus map (see link on the right).

- Charles Street (Car Park A)
- Aquatics / Booth Street East (Car Park B)
- Booth Street West (Car Park D)
- Cecil Street (Car Park E)
- Dilworth Street (Car Park F) Permit holders only until 4pm
- Dover Street (Car Park G) Permit holders only until 4pm

*PLEASE NOTE*

When special events are on (e.g. Graduation, weekday Open Days), parking is extremely limited.

We strongly recommend that to avoid disappointment, public transport is used to reach campus at these times, unless travelling by car is essential.
