Rent a Space

Reserve a parking space

Demand for parking in Bristol is very high, and the University precinct area has a very limited number of freely available parking spaces. Parking spaces on University of Bristol land are managed by a University parking permit system, and on-street spaces on the public highway are subject to Resident Parking Schemes managed by Bristol City Council.

A potential alternative to on-street parking, or the public multi-storey car park on Trenchard Street off Park Row, is to investigate one of the rent-a-space parking schemes that involve a third party on-line provider linking you with available privately owned parking spaces. At least two companies operate such schemes: JustPark and Yourparkingspace. These companies utilise parking spaces on people's driveways, in hotels and at private car parks. Further information can be gained by visiting their websites.

Rent your parking space

If you have a driveway locally you could investigate if one of these companies might list your parking space on their site too. Companies such as JustPark and Yourparkingspace claim that home-owners in the area can make up to £1,000 a year.

The University accepts no responsibility for the JustPark and Yourparkingspace sites. Please note that you join and participate in these schemes at your own risk.
