Staff and Student Car Parks

Staff and student permit holders will need to pay for parking between Monday-Friday, from 1 September to 30 June. Outside of these dates, permit holders do not need to pay. The cost is £2.00 per day. During the weekends staff and students can park at the University car park, at no cost, as long as an active parking permit is displayed. Staff and student parking permits can be applied for by logging on to the intranet, BrightSpace.

Car parks are run by Ipserve. Features include:

  • 24-hour contact centre
  • Card payment
