Organising event travel

Highfield Campus has one bookable Coach Bay for dropping off and picking up for events. This bay is on the left immediately on entrance to the Unilink bus interchange and access is strictly with an email booking confirmation from

To book the coach bay or for any other coach parking enquiries, please email or contact the Transport Team on 023 8059 2416 (22416).


We would encourage event organisers to advertise the public transport links to the University detailed on Getting to Southampton.

Any event requiring parking for more than five vehicles must be arranged through Parking Services. Demand will then be scheduled to ensure that the car parking capacity in Hampton Car Park and at Avenue Campus is not exceeded. Where there is no available capacity at academic campuses parking facilities may be offered at Wessex Lane Halls.

Departments running preview days will only be offered parking at Wessex Lane and they may choose to arrange park and ride tickets via Uni-link. Where appropriate, vehicles spaces will be coned off for a specific event and, if necessary, a car park attendant will be on duty to direct parking.

Park and Ride services are provided for Open Days and Graduation.
