Metered parking is available on Ossulston Street (3 spaces). There are also some disabled parking spaces in Judd Street opposite the Library.


There is cycle parking with secure 'Sheffield stands' in covered and uncovered areas in the Piazza. 

From Sat 7 June 2014, cycle parking will move to Ossulston Street, a few metres from the side entrance to the Piazza.

Luggage can be stored free (£1 returnable deposit) in the Locker Room. The nearest cycle shop is approximately 1,500m (a mile) south, along Gray's Inn Road.
