Car Parking and Travel
Staff and Student Car Parking
Space for the parking of motor vehicles within the University and its car parks is limited and unfortunately it is not possible for the University to meet all the parking needs of staff and students. Access to University car parks is restricted to motor vehicles carrying an official University car parking permit.
In the interests of pedestrian safety and to allow free movement of vehicles within the car parks and access to buildings in emergencies, it is important that car owners park only in authorised areas. Maintenance of safe access routes for the visually impaired is a priority and parking on pavements is, therefore, strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by the University's regulations for car parking may result in the issuing of a legally enforceable Civil Parking Notice which requires the owner of the vehicle to pay a fee of £85 reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days. The withdrawal of the car parking permit is a further option.
Frequent inspections are made of parking areas and vehicles not displaying a valid University car parking permit will be subject to the conditions above. The co-operation of car park users is sought in making the system a success and of benefit to all concerned.
Car parking facilities are the responsibility of the Estates and Buildings Department.
