Parking is limited and we encourage students to take alternative transport to college where possible.

Please be aware that barriers are in operation at the entrance to the college. These will open automatically when you approach them, unless the car park is full. If the car park is full, the counter beside the barriers will note that there is '0' spaces remaining. If this is the case, please do not wait at the barriers but instead find an alternative, safe and legal place to park. Please do not park on the yellow lines, on the grass or at the bus stop outside the college - this will result in a parking ticket.
