Student Parking

Please note that car parking is not available to students at the Leyland Campus unless there are exceptional, typically medical, circumstances which necessitate parking on the campus. This does not mean that you are unable to commute by car to the College but that you will need to make arrangements for legal and considerate off campus parking. If you consider that you have exceptional medical circumstances which require you to park on the Leyland campus, you will need to submit a car parking application request for consideration by the College. You will need to organise this in advance of the course starting to avoid parking fines. To request a car parking application form, please email Student Services or call 01772 642058. After 5:00 pm, until the closure of the Leyland campus, there are no restrictions on parking for students and visitors attending evening classes.
