We recommend our Sixfields Park and Ride service as the greenest and most cost-effective option when commuting to the University. In line with best practice and current legislation, the University offers limited parking for students and charges for parking. We are committed to reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles travelling to our sites to help reduce air pollution and congestion in the town.
To save money, we encourage you to use sustainable transport. The University has its own heavily subsidised bus service with Uno Buses and an edge of town Park and Ride, this is a cheaper option than our on-site parking permits.
As Waterside campus is in a prime town centre location this means that not only is everything accessible by foot, bike or bus, but the area is heavily trafficked with workers and the air quality has reached above the legal limit. In light of this, we cannot facilitate parking for everybody on site, and have put in place alternative options for students and their guests.
