Large groups – coach drop-off and pick-up
Coaches can drop off and pick up groups on Dover Street. Unfortunately there are no facilities for coach parking on the University campus, but most coach companies will know of coach parks in the city. For the safety of our visitors, it is not possible for coaches to drop off or pick up on Brunswick Street.
Large items of luggage can be stored securely within one of the committee rooms in the Whitworth Building. Further information on the location of the Left Luggage Room will be available in the Open Day Programme. Please note, luggage must be collected by 4pm and unfortunately cannot be stored overnight.
