You will be able to drive onto campus, but we ask that you unload your vehicle within 20 minutes and then move off campus to park. Whilst your vehicle is on campus you must display the ticket given to you by the Security Officer at the gate and the car driver must remain with the vehicle at all times. We ask that you unload your vehicle as quickly as possible and then move off campus to park your vehicle.
