Student Parking

The University recognises the key role it has to play in caring for the environment and therefore we encourage the use of public transport by staff, students and visitors in order to reduce the environmental impact of commuting. More information on sustainable travel to the University can be found here.

Car parking on Campus is managed by our parking partner, APCOA. The University has parking spaces available for use by members of staff, students and visitors, and there is a permit system in place. Expand the relevant sections below to learn more.

City Campus Parking Availability

 

We have taken the decision this year to make student car parking permits available for sale based on individual Semesters as opposed to the full year.  This recognises that (i) car parking spaces, and therefore permits are limited and this therefore provides more students with an opportunity to purchase a permit for at least part of the year; and (ii) In 2016/17, a large number of students asked to be released from their permits after Semester One given their study patterns did not require them to be on Campus for all of Semester Two.

Hunt & Park

Hunt and Park Permits allow parking on a first come, first served basis with no guarantee of a space. Permits are issued on a ratio of 1:2.5 (for every 100 spaces 250 permits will be issued).

Hunt & Park Permits will allow permit holders to park any time of day or night between Monday and Friday. Weekend parking is available in all City Campus car parks, excluding CCE Main and Lipman.

There are 90 Student Hunt and Park Permits available.

The permit costs £150.00 and will be valid from 1 October 2017 to 15 January 2018.

 Private Bay Parking

Students with a Private Bay Permit have exclusive use of their allocated bay Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays. 

Weekend parking is available in all City Campus car parks, excluding CCE Main and Lipman.

The permit costs £600.00 and will be valid from 1 October 2017 to 15 January 2018.

Blue Badge

Blue Badge holders will be able to apply for a Blue Badge Permit free of charge.

There will be 20 spaces available across City Campus and a maximum of 30 permits for these spaces will be issued each year. Blue Badge holders will be able to use the Blue Badge spaces on weekdays and at weekends.

Weekend Parking

Weekend parking (Saturday 00:01 – Sunday 23:59) for University staff and student permit holders will continue to be available at all City Campus car parks, excluding CCE Main and Lipman. These bays will available to all current permit holders and will require no additional payment.

If you are a permit holder in CCE Main or Lipman during regular office hours you will be required to hunt and park in another car park if you wish to park over the weekend.

CCE Main and Lipman car parks will revert to pay and display for public use at weekends, where all users will be subject to standard parking charges and fees.
