Campus - finding your way around
We can't wait for you to feel part of our close-knit community. Teesside University campus is a people place and you will soon feel like you belong.

Launch the campus tour and view our campus from three vantage points. By hovering over a building, you can see what it is. Select it to find out what goes on there.
All resident student parking will be at Parkside East or Parkside West. If you live at any residence on campus you may apply for a permit to use these facilities, subject to availability. The annual charge for a permit is £264. There is no car parking for resident students at King Edward's Square or Woodlands Halls.
If you rent private accommodation in a residential parking zone you may apply to the Council for a permit to park in the street where you live. You are also entitled to a book of 20 scratch card permits for use by occasional visitors. You can get advice on the application process from Middlesbrough Council, 01642 726003.
The University provides two all day pay and display car parks with a fixed charge of £2 per day - Penn and Parkside East. Entry to these car parks is by your Teesside University Student Card (TUSC), which you will need to validate at the Campus Facilities office (M2.08). To apply for validation you will need to bring a valid driving licence, an insurance certificate or cover note, and your TUSC. Returning students may apply on line via e-vision.
A TUSC activated for access to Penn/Parkside East car parks also gives access to Middletown/Students' Union short term car parks, but if you have opted for free all day car-parking in Cannon Park Way you are not eligible to have your TUSC activated for access to campus car parks.
The University also provides one other staff and student all day pay and display car park, Dartmouth, with a fixed charge of £2 per day. No prior registration is necessary but the attendant may ask to see your TUSC.
You may use FREE all day car parking on Council land in Cannon Park Way, around ten minutes walking time from the main site. A shuttle bus service operates twice an hour on term-time weekdays from 8.00am - 5.30pm. First year students should apply to the Campus Facilities office (M2.08) for a permit. You will need to show your TUSC. Returning students may apply on line via e-Vision
The University has a limited number of covered cycle stores, for which there is an annual charge of £5. There are several other places around the campus where cycles can be secured at no charge during the day.
If you ride a motorbike, contact the Campus Facilities office to register your bike and identify an appropriate parking location, for which there is currently no charge.
Some Council pay and display parking is available in the streets around the campus. The charges range from 50p (for 30 minutes) to £2.80 (all day). You must not park in streets where parking is reserved for residents.
