I arrived at the university in good time for my 10am lecture this morning, only to find that there were no parking spots in the place where I have a season to park (the multi-storey car park). Someone had decided it was a good idea to seal off the entire top floor so that people coming for visit day in the afternoon would be able to park. Great. So where do the rest of us get to park?

Well, I parked just outside the multi-storey. Another 15 minutes and I wouldn't have been able to park there, either. For this privilege, I was obliged to fork out £3.50 because I wasn't entitled to park there using my season ticket.

Needless to say, when I left (after lunch but before the visitors arrived) there were spaces available in the multi-storey from the people who had lectures in the morning but not in the afternoon. Wonderful.

The multi-storey was made for members of staff only, so that they would be able to get to lectures even if the students had taken every remaining space elsewhere. Sealing off a quarter of it on random days is not conducive t this.

I really don't know what I would have done if I couldn't have found a space to park. I guess it would have ended in either a cancelled lecture of a £50 parking charge for leaving my car on the road.
