Car Parking at Foresight Centre

The University includes several different visitor car parks which are spread across campus, if you’re visiting us at the foresight centre there is a car park directly outside the building which can be located using the following postcode L69 3GL, we are located at no. 1 Brownlow Street.

Car parking is allocated on a first come first serve basis and there is a strict University policy in place that does not permit the reserving spaces under any circumstances. Delegates arriving after 10am should consider the locations of local offsite parking here:

  • Qpark Royal Liverpool
  • St John’s Shopping Centre
  • Qpark Queens Square
  • Mount Pleasant

Standard charges apply to these car parks.

If you’re entering the university car park to drop off, the ticket will allow 15 minutes free entry, after this time period you will be liable to pay to exit the car park.

  • Upon entering the car park you should take a ticket from the machine this can then be exchanged at the foresight centre reception for a validated exit ticket, we offer parking at a reduced rate of £3 per visit, this price can be subject to change in line with the university of Liverpool travel policy.
  • Please ensure you are parked in designated parking bay failure to comply can result in the issue of a parking fine, these are issued by vehicle parking and not the foresight centre.
  • Drivers requiring use of accessible spaces are required to display a valid parking permit, disabled parking bays are free but we recommend that you email vpa [at] liverpool [dot] ac [dot] uk and register your car as a disabled, making entering and exiting the car park easier.

N.B. You will be asked to provide proof of the event you are attending in order to receive the discounted parking rate. University members of staff must use designated staff parking or pay at the designated pay station within the visitors car park.
