The University operates a controlled parking scheme. Visitors to iBEST should ensure that a visitors parking space has been reserved – and ensure that they display (and return) their temporary permit.

Visitor parking comprises the four right-hand spaces directly outside of building 250 in The Village area of the Butterfield estate.parking
