Parking and Getting to Brunel University

Will I be able to park on campus?

Car entry onto the campus will be by a special Graduation parking permit and this will be emailed to you shortly before your ceremony. Please note that only one permit per graduating student is available and that student parking permits are not valid during Graduation week.

All students and their guests need to note the following:

  • Only one permit will be issued to each graduating student - so there is no need to request one
  • There will be no duplicate or replacement permits issued in the event of lost, damaged or undelivered permits
  • There will be no vehicle access to the campus during Graduation Week without a graduation parking permit
  • Anyone with a blue local authority disabled parking permit will be directed to an appropriate space, but will still require a graduation parking permit in order to gain access to the campus.
