Directions for driving to our campus
Visitors to the University who choose to bring their car should note the following directions:
From the East, South or West take the M9 to Junction 11. At the junction, there is a roundabout which marks the end of the M9. From here you should take the exit for Bridge of Allan, follow the road through the town itself, and after about 200 metres you will find the University entrance on the left.
From the North take the A9 to the same roundabout and follow the same route through Bridge of Allan as above.
Park in a designated parking space. Possession of a valid permit does not guarantee a parking space.

Real time traffic information
The University Liftshare Scheme is a dedicated car sharing platform which helps you to find someone to share your commute and save on travelling costs. You can register your journey requirements on the Liftshare website to see who else could travel to University with you.
Visitors to campus can find potential car sharing partners by logging on to tactran liftshare.
Designated car-share spaces for those staff/student drivers carrying two or more people are located near main building entrances. There are 20 such spaces within the following car parks:
- Cottrell Main ('Y' Entrance)
- RG Bomont
- Pathfoot (Front Entrance)
- Pathfoot (Rear Entrance)
These spaces will remain reserved for car sharers up until 10.30am daily, Monday-Friday or as may be varied from time to time and advertised accordingly.
Visitors to campus are encouraged to do their bit for the environment, ease congestion and save fuel costs by car sharing.
There are two electric vehicle charging stations located within Cottrell Main Car Park and at the rear of the Pathfoot Building. There are four designated spaces allowing up to four electric cars to recharge simultaneously.
Electricity is provided free-of-charge. However, users are still required to display a valid parking permit or Pay and Display ticket. A maximum charging time of 4 hours applies following which time users are requested to move their vehicles to an alternative designated parking space to allow others to use the facilities.
