There is no dedicated car parking available at the club. There are disabled parking spaces outside the front of the club as well as pay-and-display parking, although most of this is not suitable for long-term stays (more than 3 hours). Longer-term parking can be found on the side roads of Norham Gardens, which is a short walk across the University Parks.
Alternatively car parking is available at city-centre car parks. The nearest one is Oxford City Council’s Gloucester Green Car park, a 15 -minute walk from the club.
Parking in Gloucester Green Car Park can be arranged through the RingGo service. On arrival you need to call 01865 989000 and quote location code 3901. You state the number of hours you need to park for and the system calculates the correct charge including the overnight tariff. Once parked, you can also extend your parking session if needed without having to return to the vehicle, again by calling the above number.
