As one would expect, information such as this can be quite flexible depending on local events, roadworks, council inclinations, local festivals and sporting events, etc. Therefore we provide this information simply as a "rough guide" and would recommend you to double check where possible.
Whilst there is no parking available within the college grounds or the halls of residence, there are quite a number of options to park within a short walk of either of these. Also, it is possible to drive right up to the front door of the college to unload/load your equipment and it is also possible to drive inside the halls of residence compound to unload/load your luggage.
There are pay-and-display car parks opposite and either side of the college. The price is approx £5 per day and a new ticket is required each day from 08:00am. But this can be bought the evening before, which allows you to leave the car over night. This is probably the easiest, cheapest and most convenient option.
There are a number of other pay-and-display car parks within a short walk of the college. Click HERE for a webpage showing several of these options. Most of these have daily charges.
There are also a number of NCP car parks within a short walk of the college. Some of these have weekly long-stay ticket options but the charges can be very high. Click HERE for more information.
There is some off street parking with no restrictions on side roads north of the student accommodation. This may be as much as a couple of miles from the college, so probably only an option if you are happy to leave the car there all week. Most people find that they do not use the car all week.
