Campus Map & Zones

Arrival and Check-in:
Upon arrival on campus, you are requested to make your way to one of our two registration points (see map). One registration tent can be found outside the Orange and Blue Zone and the other can be found outside the Green Zone. When you arrive at the registration tent, we will scan your ticket and provide you with a pack include the prospectus and the open day programme. You are then free to explore our exhibitions (across five locations) and attend talks and tours. 

Parking on Friday:
Free parking for open day visitors is only available in the Dangan Park and Ride car park on Friday 6th October. Visitors can park here and take the shuttle bus to the other side of campus (getting off at the last stop) and will find the registration tent in outside of the Red Zone close by. This carpark can be accessed via the entrance to Corrib Village, off the Upper Newcastle Road. To exit the carpark, drive up to the exit barrier which will automatically rise.

Friday is a working college day on campus with lectures taking place for current students. If visitors park anywhere else on campus (designated staff and student car parks), it is likely they will be clamped.

External paid parking is also available close to campus at the Cathedral.

Parking on Saturday:
Free parking is available to visitors across all car parks on campus on Saturday. It is anticipated that there will be a lot of traffic coming on campus on Saturday and if the university entrances are busy we recommend parking in the Dangan Park and Ride car park and taking the shuttle bus down to campus (the shuttle bus will run from 8:30am – 3:30pm for open day on Saturday 7th October).

External paid parking is also available close to campus at the Cathedral.
