Take the M2 from either London or East Kent direction, then exit the M2 at junction 3 (A229). Follow the signs to Chatham/Rochester. After the Toys 'R' Us roundabout, stay in the left hand lane and continue onto City Way.
After about 2 miles, at the bottom of the hill, turn right at the mini roundabout into New Road Avenue, then after 1/4 mile turn right into Fort Pitt Hill. The entrance to the University is at the top at the hill.
Unfortunately there is no parking available at Rochester and visitors are encouraged to use public transport where possible. Exceptions are made for blue badge holders, and anyone with special requirements should contact UCA Rochester directly on 01634 888702 to arrange this.
There is some street parking is available near to the campus but this can get very busy. There are a number of car parks nearby and the nearest one is at the Pentagon Centre in Chatham (postcode for satnav ME4 4LA) or there is also King Street Car Park in Rochester (postcode for a satnav ME1 1YD). Both of these are about a 10-15 minute walk away and the campus is on top of a steep hill!
