Parking on campus

We are unable to offer parking on campus, although we do have a limited number of spaces for visitors with mobility issues. If you have been able to reserve on-campus parking (this must be arranged for you by a member of staff), use the entrance on Claremont Road, opposite the Great North Museum: Hancock.

Taxi point

If you are arriving by taxi the University's taxi drop-off point is on central campus. Use the entrance on Claremont Road to reach the drop-off point on King's Road.

City centre car parks

There are numerous car parks within walking distance of campus. The nearest NCP car parks are:

Some of our events offer a 20% discount for the NCP car parks. You will usually need to validate your parking ticket on the day.

Park and ride

As the city centre is a busy place to park, you may prefer to park at a Metro station and travel in by Metro. If you choose either of the stations listed below, you will need to pay for parking and buy a return ticket (two zones) to Haymarket Metro Station, which is directly opposite the University.
