Precinct car parking



Please note that if you have more than one vehicle registered on your University parking permit, you MUST ensure that the correct vehicle is active on your permit BEFORE parking on campus.

To switch the active vehicle on your permit, log on to your online parking account, select ‘history & vehicle updates’ on the home page and click on the green vehicle icon against your permit. Access the parking permit system here.

Failure to ensure the vehicle you wish to park on campus is both registered and active on your permit may result in enforcement action. For further information please see our parking terms and conditions.

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 Precinct Parking Policy Summary (PDF, 1,411kB)‌ 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.
