08/10/2019 15:40Car Parking - Arrival

Good Afternoon,

I just want to highlight that car parking now students are back could potentially be an issue for the event on Wednesday 9th October 2019. The conference centre has limited spaces on a first come first basis for conference delegates. Once parking is full the overflow car park at the front of campus should be used. There is normally a charge of £2 (all day) but on this occasion, delegates that park in the overflow\student car park should drive up to the barrier, press the intercom and state they have been to the conference centre and it will open up.

We are also keen to highlight that the location is excellent for public transport. Please also see attached campus map located in the additional documents tab.
