Edge Hill offers free access to on-campus parking for commuting students and staff to support their access to our award-winning facilities. Unlike many other institutions, Parking Permits at Edge Hill are awarded for free and those who access our on-campus parking, will do so at no additional cost.
During term time, demand for parking can be high and will vary in reflection of academic timetable patterns and other university events taking place throughout the year. Available spaces are offered to permit holders on a first come first served basis each day and permits do not guarantee a space where full capacity is reached. This is why the Edge Hill Parking Team work hard to delegate available parking in a way which prioritises those travelling the furthest distance, or who have the greatest need to park and access our campus.
Where possible, we would strongly encourage those who have access to alternative modes of transport, live local or travel a shorter distance to consider if driving to campus is essential to their commute.
The university is also working towards a Sustainability agenda and has developed a Sustainable Travel Plan, offering staff and students opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint of their commute. This includes:
- Guaranteed parking spaces for permit holders under the Car Share Scheme: ehu.ac.uk/carshare
- Free travel on the Edge Link Bus – just show your unicard
- Bicycle Locker Users’ Club – (BLUC)
- Local Council-owned parking facilities
- Cycle to Work Scheme (Staff)
- Public Transport Travel Loan Scheme (Staff)
Please note: on-campus parking is reserved for current permit holders only. Permits must always be displayed on arrival in order to be granted access to the car park.
