Green Lane Car Park

Please be advised that University parking on Green Lane adjacent to the Joseph Banks Laboratories is only in the spaces marked white. If you are unsure of whether a parking space is allocated to the University or not, please do not park there as the area is controlled by UKCPS.

University staff are encouraged to plan their journeys into work carefully to take account of recent road diversions and the possibility that at peak times University car parks may be at or near capacity. The student experience is a priority and staff with timetabled teaching sessions, in particular, should allow sufficient time for their commutes.

Staff should familiarise themselves with the location of car parks and road diversions. Information is available on the City Council website.

Student Parking

PodPoint users will also need to provide their own charging cable. More information on how to use the points can be found on the POD Point website.
