Alterations to drainage works 20 June to 15 July 2016

20 June 2016 to assist the Project Team a section at the end of Giles Lane blue zone adjacent to the steps will be closed for a period of four weeks, during this period access will not be available into or out of the car park via either the gate leading off from Giles Lane or the gate from the footpath next to Design and Print Centre.

As this is during the vacation period parking should still be available within the central campus car parks, however, please be aware if these do become full then you may need to use the car parks within the Park Wood area, including the parking bays available next to the Park Wood accommodation.

Pedestrian signs within Park Wood Courts will inform you of the average time required to walk to the main campus. Alternatively, you can use the Park and Ride bus ticket that was sent with your parking permit to travel to and from Park Wood and the main campus.

Throughout the summer we will be updating our Transport news web page and @unikent_travel  twitter regarding the car parks. Our twitter feed is also available through the Transport news web page.

Please remember that parking enforcement will continue in accordance with the University Regulations for the Management of Traffic.
