Explanation

Access to the University is so difficult that I cannot attend classes, as there is no accessible parking for students who have to commute in in the evenings. Even staff are struggling. If this continues in this manner then, as the popularity of the team increases, attendance at the University will ultimately decrease. I understand the need to limit access to the stadium so that supporters are safe, but people who have classes at the University in the evening need parking. I am happy to apply for a pass for these times that I can show security, and perhaps a car park can be put to one side for staff and evening students. I specify evening students, as it is not the same issue for the day students, as the restrictions are not as severe before 5pm.

  • 14 May 2019: The Campaigns Developer and School Reps have contacted the University and the Molineux Stadium to discuss car parking situations. Currently, there are no provisions for providing car park spaces for the number of students who need it. However, timetabling are looking at scheduling lectures outside of match days to ease University access. We are in communications with the University to discuss options for student car parking. We hope to provide you with further updates by 04 June 2019.

11:20am on 29 Jan 19 I agree although I'm unsure of if it is the university or the Council that needs to change this.

4:32pm on 24 Jan 19 Completely agree! To arrive in Wolverhampton at, say, 8:45am for a 9:00 and not being able to park due to a game of football that won't be starting for 10 hours is plainly ridiculous. I'm often then forced to park by West Park, but even then there are often no spaces due to many others having the same idea.
