Sports Hire and Hotel Parking

If you have hired our sports facilities (MUGA, Sports Dome or 4G Pitch), you can park in Car Park One at Waterside (Bedford Rd, NN1 5PH), for the duration of your hire with no preregistration necessary, just pay when you park.

The tariff is below and you can use the payment machine (card only) or RingGo app/phone/website (24700 Monday – Friday / 24701 Sat – Sun).

Blue Badge holders are exempt from parking charges at Waterside. However, we do ask that you display your badge in the windscreen and register your vehicle with us so we can tell our enforcement company that your car is exempt from payment. Please email your vehicle reg, make and colour along with a photo of your Blue Badge to parking@northampton.ac.uk soon after your stay.

Once we have processed your ‘permit’, we will delete your email details.
