Anyone choosing to park on campus must do so in accordance with the University’s Parking terms and conditions (PDF , 290kb).
If you are found parking in a way that contravenes the parking terms and conditions, you will be issued with a Parking Charge Notice and will not be eligible for a University Parking permit until the debt is settled.
These charges are not a penalty or fine. Payment of PCNs may be pursued by the University through legal means, including the courts, which may result in you incurring additional costs.

If the parking charge notice is not paid, the owner of the vehicle will receive a series of letters requesting payment. If payment for the parking charge notice in not received at this stage, the case is passed to a Debt Collection Agency who will continue to chase payment. After a period of time if the debt remains unpaid, the agency will issue a Final Arrears Notice.
From 1 August 2016 any payment still outstanding with the Debt Collection Agency following a Final Arrears Notice, will be passed to the University’s solicitor who will issue a Letter of Claim. If there is no payment made within 14 days of the date of this letter a Claim will be made and an additional £50 added to the amount of the outstanding payment to cover costs. If payment is not made within 14 days of the date of the Claim, a County Court Claim will be issued against the motorist.
