As you may know, the University will be hosting a major recruitment event – the Lancashire UCAS Fair on campus on Thursday 30th June from 9:30am – 2:30pm. Consequently staff parking will be limited and we strongly advise and recommend that all staff consider alternative means of transport wherever possible e.g. walking, cycling, being dropped off, arriving by bus etc.
The Edge Link bus will be running as normal.
If you have no option other than to arrive by car, please consider car sharing wherever possible and follow the directions below:

A small section of Car Park C will be closed off to allow preparation for the coach parking area. Therefore, please refrain from using this area and follow the instructions of the Traffic Management Assistants and Campus Support staff. This area will be available again for access from Friday 1 July.
