Plymouth Marjon University is committed to continued investment in infrastructure that supports staff, students and visitors to use sustainable modes of transport. The aim is to increase low carbon modes of transport and reduce carbon emissions. As the university is looking to grow and develop, necessary changes will need to be implemented in order to improve green travel and sustainability.

Blue Badge Holders are permitted to park in any marked bay on main campus, but the blue badge is only required to be displayed if parked in an accessible bay.
Where possible, we encourage all our staff, students & visitors to use public transport.

First Parking is contracted by the University to manage the terms and conditions for car parking that are stipulated on the information boards positioned around the campus.
Enforcement is via Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and the vehicle entrance & exit are monitored by cameras.
Hours of enforcement on main campus are between 07.30 and 17.30 Monday to Friday (throughout the year). Parking outside of these hours, will not require a permit or payment.
Parking Charge Notices (PCNs) will be issued against any vehicle in breach of these terms and conditions. All appeals should be made directly to First Parking via the instructions provided on the PCN. The penalty for the PCN is £40.00, or £25.00 if paid within 14 days. Despite common misconception, Parking Charge Notices are enforced and pursued, so please do not ignore.
