Due to the ongoing construction of our Farm Lodge new build, parking spaces on campus remain limited. Parking on campus is available via the Granville Drive entrance only. An overflow car park is available at Ballymena FC football grounds, which is just a 5-minute walk from the campus. This can be accessed via Warden Street or Suffolk Street.  You can still access the campus on foot using the public footpath from Suffolk Street.  

It is imperative that staff and students do not park in the streets surrounding the campus and we show full respect to our neighbours at all times.
