We encourage our students to use public transport or walk to campus. However, we understand you may need to drive to the University.

You can apply for a student parking permit if you:

  • have a disability
  • have a child under 16
  • act as a carer
  • suffer with other medical conditions

If you live in Halls of Residence or have a term time address within 15 miles of University Park you will not be eligible for a permit.




What you need to know

To apply for a parking permit online you will need your:

You'll also need to provide support for your application. This can include:

  • your child's birth certificate or passport
  • proof of residency
  • medical evidence

The price of your permit will depend on your vehicle's emissions and the type of permit. There is an annual charge for permits, running from 1 September to 31 August. Permits are vehicle specific.
