Facilities for those arriving by bicycle

The surrounding area of the University’s central precinct has a number of places in which you can attach and lock your bicycle. However, if you are attending a conference and wish to use the University’s facilities for parking you will need to contact the Conference office to pre arrange the use of a space.

Alternatively, if you are coming for a meeting or visiting the premises you will need to ask the University representative managing your visit or meeting to arrange a space for you through security/reception.

Please note that spaces are limited and that bicycles left on our premises are done so at the owner’s risk. We recommend that belongings are locked away out of sight as the University cannot be held responsible for thefts or damage to bicycles.
