Travel and Parking on Graduation Day

Travel and Parking for UON ceremonies

Please allow enough time when considering your travel. Ceremonies will start at the advertised time and will not be delayed for any missing students or guests.

Venue Postcodes

  • Main car parking, car park D: Edgar Mobbs Way – NN5 5JT
  • Additional Needs drop-off / pick-up point – NN5 5BG


Parking is available for all students and guests in car park D, which is a short walk from the ceremony venue.

Should you have guests or students with additional needs there is a drop off or pick up area in the front car park of the venue you can use before parking in car park D.

Students and guests should note that whilst we will try where possible to accommodate any late students and guests this is not always possible. Once the ceremony has begun there are certain areas within the auditorium in which we are unable to seat guests, so late arrivals may be given alternative seating arrangements.

Further Information

We understand not everyone that comes for the ceremony has visited Northampton before; should you be new to the town, or staying for longer than the ceremony, there is lots for you to see and do.

You can find a lot of information on our Northamptonshire pages.

If you have any other questions regarding your visit or stay in Northampton, please feel free to get in touch and we will help where we can. You can contact us via email:
