Parking at Sheffield UniversityWatch
I was wondering if any past or current Sheffield University students could advise on what parking at sheffield campus is like?
Either on the main campus or by cathedral court (psychology).
I am a disabled student with a blue badge and am slightly worried about the new academic year as I will be commuting into university, but will struggle to walk any reasonable distance or afford to pay parking at the public car park. And if I can't park, then i will potentially struggle hugely to attend. Is it worth turning up particularly early? Are there any areas were there are more disabled spaces or may be easier to park?
Walking from the union area to psych building will also be hugely difficult but if theres no parking near cathedral court its something I will obviously have to attempt to work around. TIA
If you're able to get parking at the university campus, I'm fairly sure there's a bus you can get from nearby the campus to fairly close to cathedral court if that makes it a bit easier?
Sorry that this is kinda vague!
There a few spots near the uni which is "unrestricted" but its very limited and I've only ever been able to park in those spaces once, so relying on it daily wouldn't be a good idea.
This seems to imply you can park free in pay and display bays for free?
The things I would do personally is contact the uni and the council to see if you can park free in these spots.
I'm not sure about cathedral court, but I always seem to spot one or two spaces near the SU, and the car park near north campus usually has spaces (not sure if this is anywhere near where you need)
