Visitors should park in the University’s North East Car Park on Pritchatts Road, B15 2SA. This costs £2.50 per hour or £7.00 for up to 10 hours, using the RingGo cashless system. Parking here and on campus is free of charge after 6pm Mon-Fri, and on weekends.
Blue Badge parking for disabled drivers is available on campus, through the East Gate entrance on Edgbaston Park Road.
Marquees, stages and other equipment
The Green Heart is ideal for marquees and stages, to provide performance space, exhibition space or catering. To preserve the campus grounds, marquees and stages require prior approval; your events team can organise this for you. Other external equipment may also need prior permission; just ask your event coordinator what’s needed.
Many outdoor events require licences to take place, for example if live music is to be played late at night, movies screened or alcohol served. In many cases the University will already have the relevant licence for the area. Your event coordinator will help you make sure you have the right documentation.
