Visitor car park at Highfield Campus

There is a small dedicated visitors’ car park at the Highfield Campus where spaces can be pre-booked on normal university days. This car park is for visitors only and is not for the use of staff, students or contractors. The facility is staffed throughout the day from Mondays to Fridays.

On special event days such as graduation or open days, this car park will not be available for general booking.  Please follow the event information provided for parking details.

On entering University Road from Burgess Road, turn right into Salisbury Road. The Visitors car park is the first car park on the right and has a grey attendant’s cabin at the entrance.

We are pleased to offer staff an online online booking service for their visitors parking at this car park. Departments are limited on the number of spaces they can book, please email us on if you are unable to book online.

Any visitors to Highfield who have not been pre-booked or issued with a permit should use the Pay and Display car park.

Use of this Car Park is strictly by payment at one of the 2 machines provided. No Permits are accepted.

Any visitors To Avenue Campus, Boldrewood Campus or the University of Southampton Winchester Campus should request a permit from the campus reception. Any visitor with a disabled blue badge may park in any available bay on campus.
