Getting to the Venue by Car

For traffic coming from Edinburgh (M90), Glasgow (A9) and beyond, Dundee is best approached from the south via the A90. From the outskirts of Dundee the route into the University is well signposted and relatively easy to follow. There is also a scenic route from Edinburgh along the Fife coastline and into Dundee via the Tay Road Bridge.

Parking is available at Greenmarket Car Park (DD1 4QX), pictured on the left at a cost of £5.60 for up to 10 hours – it’s about 5-10 minutes walk from here to the venue. Other parking sites are available, check the map above for details.
