Car Parking

There are 2 car parks available, one for the Sportspark, which if coming from Earlham Road will be on your left before you reach the pool. If this car park gives you a ticket then it may need to be validated at reception before you leave. The second car park is the main UEA car park on your left after the pool. This will give a yellow token, which can be validated using a machine opposite reception, when you leave. There is a Kisstory event taking place at Earlham Park, which may mean the UEA car park is busier than normal

Entrance to poolside

Lockers

All lockers require a padlock, padlocks can be bought from reception. Please do not cover the vents on the window side of the pool, with bags, as this affects the air conditioning system.
