We also run a free intersite bus service for students, staff and visitors. The KU1 and KU3 buses stop on this campus.

The University has limited on-site parking facilities and prioritises staff during core working hours (Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 4.30pm). Limited visitor parking is available but must be pre-booked through the person you are visiting, as parking enforcement measures are in operation at all sites.

All car park users agree to the University car parking terms and conditions.
