The works in the Giles Lane car park are progressing well. The pink zone is in the process of being levelled and drainage and data cable routes are being dug. 100% of the waste produced by the works is being sent outside of the University to be recycled.
To enable us to provide sufficient parking for everyone, we are working in partnership with Kent Sport to have overflow parking available once the bays in the Park Wood car parks are full. There are two over flow car parks, both accessed via Park Wood Road:
- The first overflow car park is situated around the edge of the sports pitch next to the Sports Pavilion. It is for the use of staff and student permit holders, as well as University Visitors issued with an e permit.
- The second overflow car park is situated around the edge of the Sports Field at the top of Park Wood Road next to the Oaks car park. This is for the use of permit holders. It will also be used by the Contractors working in the Park Wood Courts areas.
Both overflow car parks are signposted on Park Wood Road. Please ensure all your visitors issued with an e-permit are aware that parking is busy on campus at the moment and notify them of all the parking areas. Details on visitor parking are on our web pages. If you are planning an event on campus over the summer which will require parking for visitors please contact the Transport team as soon as possible to discuss your requirements.
The use of the overflow car parks is weather dependent. We will keep you updated via Transport News on our website and our twitter page (@unikent_travel) if there are any changes to this.
If there are no car parking spaces available in the overflow car park, please try the Park Wood courts. Our interactive parking map shows all the car parks on campus, with information on the number of bays in each area.
If you are struggling to find a parking space, please call Campus Security (01227 823300) who may be able to look on the CCTV and advise you where parking is available.
25 July – 8 August 2018
There will be a large number of families staying in the Park Wood Courts accommodation over this period. Please take extra care and drive slowly in Park Wood as there will be children running around and playing in this area, including on the roadways. Please note that the speed limit on Park Wood Road itself is a maximum of 20 miles per hour.
During this period the Oaks car park will be reopened to staff, student and visitor permit holders. We will continue to assess whether this area is needed for coach and minibus parking and will advise accordingly.
