Coach and Minibus Parking (Park Wood Road Layby, Canterbury)

  • This area is not a designated car parking area and is used for coach and minibus parking to reduce the number of these types of vehicles using the campus car parks.
  • During the weeks leading up to the end of term this area will be busy on a daily basis for schools attending shows at the Gulbenkian, please ensure your vehicle is not parked within the layby

 Medway campus

  • We have introduced a new parking map onto the signage in the Drill Hall car park, Pembroke campus. The map shows which areas are the designated parking areas within this car park.
  • We are unable to paint bay markings or lines within this car park, which is on the Parade Ground and is part of a heritage site. The parking bays are indicated by circular discs in the ground and planters to help differentiate the parking areas. Following feedback regarding parking in the Drill Hall car park, we have introduced the new map to the signage to further assist the car park users
