 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
