Major events on campus: parking and travel guidance


June 10th, 2024

Over the next month, the university will be hosting several major events which will mean University Park campus will be busier than usual and UoN parking permit holders may find it more difficult to find a space.

Upcoming events include:

  • Open Days: Friday 28 June and Saturday 29 June 2024
  • Summer Graduation: Tuesday 16 July – Wednesday 24 July 2024

During Graduation, campus car parks close to graduation venues will be reserved for graduation parking only.

The maps below show the parking areas around the Trent Building and David Ross Sports Village which will be reserved for graduation parking.

UoN permit holders who would usually use these car parks will need to park in other campus car parks.

If you are a blue badge holder and the parking spaces you normally use are reserved for graduation parking, then on the day please notify security services staff and they will direct you to an appropriate parking area close to your destination.

Graduations and Open Days are key events in the university calendar, and we need your support to help ensure they are a success.

During these busy periods we ask staff to consider the following to reduce parking pressures on campus:

  • Can you take advantage of the warmer and lighter days and walk or cycle to work? Find out more about how the university supports cyclists
  • Could you catch the bus or tram to work? University Park is well served by bus and tram and don’t forget that the £2 bus fare scheme is still in operation
  • Free Hopper buses connect University Park with Jubilee Campus and King’s Meadow Campus so you may find it easier to park at another campus and catch the bus to University Park
  • If you are an agile worker, could you plan your working week to reduce the need to travel to University Park on these busy days?

We recognise that for some staff travelling to University Park campus by car is unavoidable, so please factor in additional travel time if your usual car park is not available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy period on campus.
