Arrival on Saturday 28 September

If you are intending to arrive on Saturday 28 September, there is no parking available directly on site. However, you will be able to drop off luggage with a vehicle waiting for a period of 15 minutes, before the vehicle will need to move on. Limited parking for a further period will be available in the surrounding area, although not close enough to unload belongings. This includes 150 designated parking spaces in the nearby Carphone Warehouse. If you are parking here, you will need to display the parking notice included on the Woodward Buildings Traffic Flow Map 2019

Please note that Woodward is a tall building and we ask that you think very carefully about what you bring with you as large amounts of belongings can cause congestion of the lifts and stairwells during the busy arrival period. 

Arrival on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September - by public transport only 

Most students will choose to arrive on Saturday 28 September when it will be extremely busy. If you are able to travel via public transport, we recommend moving in on Thursday 26 or Friday 27 September.

Please note that only students arriving by bus, tube or train can be considered for arrival on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September. It will not be possible to arrive by car on these days as there are no spaces for vehicles to park or wait whatsoever.
