Parking and travel

Our Travel Plan encourages staff, students and visitors to travel to the University by sustainable means wherever possible. Parking on campus is limited and reserved for permit holders.

Parking Permits

We try to manage our parking spaces fairly. Only members of staff and registered students may apply for a parking permit and eligibility criteria applies based on the distance travelled and the availability of public transport.

Registered staff and students may check their eligibility and apply for a parking permit online.

If you have any questions about parking permits, or access to campus, you can drop the Parking team an email.
