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. Our staff can book a space in the visitor car park using the Facilities online portal (staff only).

If you are going to T Block (Bristol Robotics Laboratory), please contact your host to arrange access for you.

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.
