Parking is available at Glenside but spaces are very limited, so it's worth considering alternative transport methods.

To park on campus you can either

  • Buy an annual permit.
  • Register for a 'free permission to park' permit. You'll then need to buy and display a daily parking token which can be purchased from either The SU Shop at Glenside or The SU Bar at Glenside

Please note that a valid parking permit is required to park on any UWE Bristol campus. More info
