Car Parking

Staff and Student Car Parking

Application Forms & Parking Policy

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 Parking Policy for car parking may result in the issuing of a legally enforceable Parking Charge Notice which requires the owner of the vehicle to pay a fee of £70 reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days. The withdrawal of the car parking permit is a further option.

Staff must be aware the Red Visitor Parking Bays on the Mountjoy Site are for visitor use only. Parking in these bays will lead to staff receiving a Parking Charge Notice.

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.
