Parking on Campus

Dear Students

As Rhodes University has expanded in size over the years, the road system on Campus has become increasingly congested, with a limited amount of parking space available.  Unfortunately there will be even more pressure on parking from June this year, when the building of a new Education Building will begin in the Grey St parking lot (near Allan Webb Hall). The site will be accessible to construction staff only, with no through route. After completion, there will only be limited parking for disabled and staff.  

Students are reminded that that there are 240 parking bays in the  Barratt Car Park (with 24/7 security), within a 10 minute easy walk to most parts of campus. Also note that all restricted areas such as Central Campus and St Peters Campus are open after-hours for staff and students.

Your understanding and patience will be appreciated.
