The Closed University Car Park Rankings

"Vroom-vroom, toot-toot. Late for my meeting. Only 15 minutes to find a parking space. It's gonna be tight."

35 minutes later...

"MOVE YOUR F*CKING CAR YOU F*CKING A*SEH*LE!"

And that's the VC talking.

Welcome to the Closed University Car Park Rankings, where we've calculated which universities have lost (or gained) the most parking spaces over the last decade.

Bantshire data experts have compared the number of car parking spaces from 2009/10 and 2018/19 (date source: HESA). We've ranked it from 'most lost' to 'most gained'. We're not data experts, so you might think this is incorrect. But you're wrong.

So, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride...
