I'm going to Frenchay Campus

Visiting a member of staff?

Please ask the person you are visiting to book you into one of our reserved spaces in the visitor car park, which is only accessible via the North Entrance. You will then need to report to the Bristol Business School Reception to validate your ticket.

If you are going to the Exhibition and Conference Centre and T Block (Bristol Robotics Laboratory), please contact your host to arrange access and a car parking permit for you.

Helping a student move?

If you want to help a UWE Bristol student move in or out of accommodation on our Frenchay Campus, you will first need to report to the East Reception where we will give you a temporary loading pass.

All other visitors

There are a limited number of spaces available each day in the visitor car park, which is only accessible via the North Entrance. Upon entry you will be issued with a ticket which must be validated in the pay machine before you can exit. Charges of £5 for a half day and £10 for a full day will apply during core hours (09:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday). If parking outside of these times you will still need to validate your parking ticket in the pay machine, but will not be charged. The pay machine accepts card payments only.

I'm going to Glenside Campus

Parking is very limited. Please contact the person you are visiting and ask them to arrange car parking for you in the visitor car park. There is very limited space in this car park and all visitors must be pre-booked. Please read our alternative travel options for travelling to Glenside.

I'm going to City Campus at Bower Ashton

Parking is very limited. Please contact the person you are visiting and ask them to arrange a visitor car parking permit for you. Visitors who are unable to prearrange car parking can make use of the public car park in the Ashton Court Estate, a short walk from the campus and pay and display parking on Kennel Lodge Road. Please read our alternative travel options for travelling to Bower Ashton.

The fine print

Even if you have a permit, we do not guarantee access to individual spaces. Parking on campus is entirely at your own risk.

Please do not park in neighbouring residential streets. Parking in residential areas has become a huge inconvenience to local residents.

We accept no responsibility for any vehicle theft or for any loss from or damage to vehicles parked on campus.
