Getting here

Broadview Lodge stands within 320 acres of the UEA campus, overlooking over very own broad, and is just three miles from the Norwich city centre.

Our SatNav postcode is NR4 7TJ, and we invite you to call us on 01603 591918 if you need help planning your route.

There’s also a regular bus and taxi service that runs from the Norwich International Airport, located four miles to the north of the city, and from the train station. And because parking on campus is limited, UEA offers a free, sustainable Park and Ride alternative from the Costessey P&R station. The journey takes approximately 15 minutes and runs up to every 15 minutes between 07:00 and 08:15, Monday to Friday* and on UEA Open Days. (*Except Bank Holidays and UEA customary days)

Parking on campus

Guests staying at Broadview Lodge can park on campus for free. When you enter the main campus car park, please take a yellow token at the barrier and we’ll validate it at the reception desk. You can also validate your token by using the parking validator within the lobby. Please make sure you leave your car registration details at reception when you check in.

Checking in

Check-in at Broadview Lodge opens at 14:00. If you happen to arrive early on the day, you’re welcome to leave your bags with us while you take some time to get to know the area. If you’ve parked your car here on campus, please remember to give us your car registration information, so that we can validate your yellow token.

During your stay

Our reception opening hours are 08:00 - 21:00, Sunday to Friday, and 08:00 - 18:00 on Saturdays. In the case of an emergency outside of these times, please call our security colleagues on extension 2222 from the phone in your room. To dial from a mobile phone, call 01603 592222.  

You can also use the internal phone, located on the wall opposite the lift on the third-floor lobby entrance.

If you need to dial 999 for the emergency services, please inform the security lodge immediately after. This will allow them to quickly direct the relevant emergency services to the correct part of the campus.

For non-emergencies, you can contact our Security colleagues from your room phone by calling 2352.

Checking out

Check out time is 10:00. If you don't think you'll be ready by then, you can request a late checkout for a nominal fee of £10 (subject to availability). This extends your checkout time to 12:00. Just like check-in, we’re happy to hold your bags until you’re ready to leave. Just make sure you pop by before reception closes, as we can’t keep bags overnight.


If you’re bringing the family, or you need disability access, our suite is the perfect choice with a separate space for your children or accompanying carer.


Besides making you feel welcome and comfortable, we want to make sure you feel safe while you’re here with us. UEA provides 24-hour, onsite security, and your key-card gives you 24-hour secure access to your room. Broadview Lodge is also equipped with a fire alarm system, and please be aware that we run a test every Monday around 11:00.
