Staff and students living within this radius will not be eligible for a parking permit, unless they meet extenuating circumstances such as: health, care commitments, some courses containing placements etc. For more information, see the Green Travel & Parking Policy below.

Parking enforcement

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.
