We recommend that you plan to make a drop off in case both accessible parks are in use. If you park in the accessible park you need to purchase a ticket from the machine and display that alongside your disabled parking permit.

Car Parking

Unfortunately, being in the middle of campus means that there are no car parks available immediately outside Union House.
For details of the public car parks on campus see:
