Travel and parking information on graduation day

Hull campus and Hull City Centre

The following map of Hull City Centre shows the location of the Guildhall, City Hall and car parks. If you are staying close to the University campus, you might find it more convenient to leave your car and travel by public transport or taxi into the City Centre.


Please be advised that there is a significant amount of city centre building works currently happening and as such this means there will be reduced access to Queen Victoria Square.  There will be a number of stewards wearing high visibility clothing marking the route from Guildhall to the City Hall with access being directed through New Cross Street.

Recommended Parking

Discount parking is available at Princes Quay for all those attending graduation – please text your car registration number and the date you wish to park to 07884 588857 to receive discounted parking.

If you are staying close to the University campus, you may find it more convenient to leave your car and travel into the city centre by public transport or by taxi. Please refer to the contact numbers listed under useful Hull numbers.
