University Of Bristol Visitor Parking

Visitor car parking is located at the centre of the University precinct on The Hawthorns (Woodland Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 1UQ) site. Spaces can be booked (on behalf of visitors) by University of Bristol staff only.

A visitor is anyone who wishes to visit the University and who is not a University employee based in the main University Precinct.

You may reserve a parking space for either AM, PM or all day. At the time of booking, you will need to supply a charge code (EL1, EL2 and EL3) and the vehicle registration number.

All visitor car parking is booked online using the visitor car parking system.  Individual bookings can be edited or deleted using the visitor car parking system. In the event that a vehicle registration number is not provided at the time of booking, please provide your visitor with the booking confirmation and ask them to display it in their vehicle when it is parked on-site.  Failure to do so may result in the issuing of a Civil Parking Notice.

Visitors in possession of a local authority Blue Badge may be booked into the Hawthorns or use the rights they are given on public highways.  Visitors holding a Blue Badge are not allowed to use disabled bays in any of the University car parks.  If a visitor requires an accessible parking bay due to their disability, the requesting department should contact Security Services (Car Parking) to ensure a space is allocated in an appropriate location.

Should you have any questions, please call Security Services (Car Parking) on 0117 3311190.
