Staff parking

While we understand the need for some people to drive to and park at the University, we encourage staff, students and visitors to consider other means of transport where possible, to help make our campus, and your journey, more sustainable.

Staff who want to park on campus will require a valid parking permit or pay and display ticket.

What if I need to use a hire car?

If you’re a permit holder and have a hire car whilst your usual car is in the garage, you can add the hire vehicle’s registration to your account and select it as the active vehicle. You will need to remember to switch the active vehicle back when done. Login to your account, go to my permits and the green vehicle icon. The active vehicle will be marked with a green tick.
