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. Free car parking is available on all sites for blue badge holders and there are docking bays for electric cars.

Members of the public can pay to use the limited onsite parking outside core working hours on a first come first served basis.  The parking facilities at Knights Park, the Avionics Building and River House sites operate a pay-by-phone system known as 'Parkonomy'.  Pay to park facilities are also available at Penrhyn Road campus site which is less than 5 minutes walk from Knights Park.  Alternative parking in Kingston Town Centre can also be found on the Parkopedia website - which shows current availability and costs.

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