Contractor parking

The information on this page refers to the car parks contained within the Precinct and Satellite sites. List of University car parks (PDF, 47kB) Contractors requiring the use of other University car parks, such as Coombe Dingle, Langford and the Halls of Residences are requested to seek information from their University contract manager as there may be local parking policies in place.

NOTE: Contractors are required to pay to park. All successful contractor applicants must display a parking permit and parking coupon when parked in a University car park covered by this policy.

UPDATE AUGUST 2017: Contractor parking permits will expire on 31 December 2017. The forthcoming shortened 2017/2018 permit year will run from 1 January 2018 to 31 July 2018 and the application window for new contractor permits will be open between 11 September 2017 and 27 October 2017. The application form will be available to download from the Applying for a parking permit web page.

The application form and guidance documents are currently being updated to reflect the fact they should be completed for the 2017/2018 permit year, and will be available in time for the opening of the application window on 11 September 2017.

There is no change to the University Precinct and satellites sites parking policy* that was introduced in January 2016 and updated in June 2016. The qualifying criteria for 2017/2018 contractor permits remains exactly the same as for the 2016/2017 permit application window, and as per the guidance outlined on the University Car Parking web pages. Each contractor must reapply for a new permit before the end of the permit year, irrespective of the term of their contract.

A new on-line parking permit and coupon management system will be implemented for the 2018/2019 permit year. Further information on the new permit and coupon management system will be available on these web pages, and via the weekly staff bulletin, in advance of the implementation of the new system in April 2018. Alternatively, email Security Services at car-parking@bristol.ac.uk.
