The University can be accessed by car through two main entrances: the Main Entrance (near the UL Flagpoles) and the East Gate Entrance, both of which are off the Plassey Park Road. Details of car-pooling, set-down areas, and parking facilities are available on the Parking Map below.

Reserving a Visitor Car Parking Space

Spaces are available by e-mail booking to The reservation must be authorised by the administrator of the department requesting the reservation and reserved for visitors only.

Car Pooling

A number of dedicated car pooling spaces are available (up to 10.00am Mon to Fri) in several staff car parks. After 10.00am these will revert to standard staff spaces. These spaces are clearly marked with signage and blue coloured road markings. The criterion for parking in one of these spaces is to have two valid staff parking disks on display. The security staff check these every morning and any car found parked in violation of this policy will be liable to be clamped.
