Getting around Campus, Transport & Parking

GCU campus is relatively flat and all buildings are in close proximity of each other.  Most teaching areas are accessible by lift/stair lift and entrances to all buildings have automatic doors, and ramps where applicable.

More detailed information regarding physical features of the campus and access to individual buildings on campus can be found on the Disabled Go website.

If you require further information about access in and around campus, the Disability Team will be happy to assist you in identifying most convenient routes between and within buildings.

As the campus is very centrally located, with good public transport links, students are generally discouraged from bringing their cars to GCU.

Individuals who have a ‘Blue Badge’ can apply for a parking permit and are exempt from charges.  They are however required to provide proof of their Blue Badge to the Transport Office located on the ground floor of the George Moore Building room X016 where they will be issued with a parking permit.  This will allow them to park on University property and occupy a disabled users parking pay. 

The bays are located at various buildings around the campus namely at the side of the Britannia and at the back of the Saltire Building.  Please note that parking bays are not allocated to specific permit holders and that they are not always available at places and times required throughout the day.  Please note if you are intending to park via the North Hanover car park entrance you will require a fob key.  For more information please contact the Disability Team.
