If you're travelling to campus by car, there are a range of off-site locations suitable for parking around the university.


Park and Ride

Canterbury City Council operates a Park and Ride Scheme at the Wincheap, Sturry Road and New Dover Road Park & Ride car parks. Restarting in September 2020, tickets are £4.00 per day for a car. You can also register online for the ANPR car parks, so you don't have to go to the pay machines. Instead, your registration is recognised when you enter and leave the car park and payment is made automatically.

Public Car Parking

There is a limited number of council public parking close to campus. You can find information on this, including details for Blue Badge holders, on the Canterbury City Council website. If you are studying in Augustine House then there is also a public car park near Canterbury East rail station.

Polo Farm Minibus Service

A free 5 minute shuttle service for students and staff is available at Polo Farm Sports Club Canterbury (CT3 4AF). A small shuttle bus will be in operation to take students and staff to the Old Sessions House and for the return journey to Polo Farm in the evening. Spaces are limited and on a first come, first serviced basis. You can also use the local Stagecoach public bus service to get to Polo Farm. 


If you are travelling to Medway campus by car, then you can park in the Historic Dockyard Trust car park for £3.00 per day, or there is also parking at the nearby Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre.

Tunbridge Wells

There is no arranged off-campus parking for the Salomons Institute in Tunbridge Wells, however, there is a multi-storey car park (Meadow Road) opposite the site. It is also less than a 10 minute walk to the Tunbridge Wells Rail Station.
