Precinct car parking

Limited car parking is available at locations across the University for those unable to travel on foot, by bike or by public transport.

These pages provide information on car parking on the University’s main Precinct and satellite sites. Use the menu on the left of this page to navigate to specific guidance on parking for staff (including car sharers), students, departments, contractors and visitors.

Information on car parking at University Residences and at our Langford campus is available separately via the main car parking menu.

Precinct car parking policy

The parking policy for the University Precinct and satellite sites came into force in January 2016. 

The University Precinct Parking Policy Summary (2018) (PDF, 866kB) is available to view. 

The policy defines the criteria and process by which parking permits will be allocated to University staff (including car-sharers), disabled staff and students, departments, contractors and visitors. A list of University car parks (2018) (PDF, 79kB) covered by this policy is also available to view.

By parking at any of the car parks covered by the policy, users agree to abide by the University's Parking Terms and Conditions.

Further information for visitors to the University is available on the Visitor Parking page.
