At Regent’s, we are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all of our guests. We understand that everyone’s needs are different, and we strive to ensure that everyone who visits our venue has an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
The main car park has three dedicated Blue Badge parking spaces. To use the disabled spaces in the Acland Car Park you must pre-register your vehicle with the Conference office. While using the Acland dedicated spaces, the Blue Badge must be clearly visible in the windscreen of the vehicle at all times.
Alternatively, should you prefer to use off campus parking, the Crown Estates have spaces for Blue Badge holders just opposite the main car park entrance. These spaces permit free parking for Blue Badge holders for up to 4 hours.
Instructions for Acland car park
Turn left into Acland Car Park immediately after driving over the bridge on York Road. At the barrier, please contact security via the Intercom (which is the button with a picture of a telephone handset on it). Advise them that you are a Blue Badge holder and you wish to use a disabled parking space.
Drive to the bottom of the Driveway and you will see a small square where the one space is clearly marked. Go up the ramped access to the Acland entrance. Outside this door to Acland building there is a video entry system. This is controlled from the Security Office. When you press the buzzer, Security staff will automatically open the door from their office.
When you are ready to leave, please use one of the university internal telephones and dial ‘0’. This will put you through to reception or security. Let them know that you are ready to leave and they will make the necessary arrangements so that you can exit the car park. Alternatively, please visit the Conferences office located at the front of the building by the main reception.
