Only staff with a permit and authorised visitors are allowed to park on campus. Sighthill Bank has single and double yellow lines along most of its length. Broomhouse Road has restricted parking all day. If you do choose to park your car on the street then you do so at your own risk. If you do not have an Edinburgh Napier parking permit it is advisable to use public transport to get to the campus. If you are an official visitor, please ask the member of staff that you're visiting to reserve a visitor parking space for you.
Student permit applications can only be accepted where availability allows. Please note that there is no automatic guarantee that students will be allowed to park at any campus, as the permit scheme allocation is designed primarily for staff and disabled students.
Opportunities for car sharing are available through the City of Edinburgh Council's Tripshare website, and we have two City Car Club vehicles on site. Park and ride facilities are available throughout Edinburgh, including Hermiston Gait and Newcraighall Train Station.

A tram system is currently under construction in Edinburgh, which will run from the airport via Haymarket to York Place. There will be a tram stop at Bankhead, approximately five minutes' walk from the campus. The journey time from Princes Street to the Bankhead stop is approximately 16-18 minutes.
