Please note: parking restrictions at Wolverhampton City Campus

On the day, Wolverhampton Wanderers are playing against Cardiff City at Molineux with a 3pm kick-off, so the city is likely to be busy. If you’re travelling to our Wolverhampton City Campus that also means that parking opportunities will be limited, but you can plan your parking on the day using this handy guide to parking in Wolverhampton.

Instead of driving, you may want to use public transport – plan your journey by bus or train and avoid the hassle of driving.

What if I can't attend this Open Day?

We have many Open Days throughout the year, but if you can't make any of them you don't have to miss out on discovering what we have to offer.
