Hospitality and Accommodation Services are responsible for car parking including administration of permits, barrier maintenance and security.

Any individual using parking facilities at the University should adhere to the University’s Traffic Regulations.


The ANPR solution within this car park is due to be removed on 17th November and replaced with Pay & Display machines.  The entrance barriers will also be removed.

Members of staff parking here after these changes should either:

1)  update their permit to a Purple Fixed Fee payment type (giving the most flexible access across campus without the
need for purchasing a ticket).

Application forms below – see staff parking options


2)  should pay the daily staff rate (currentl £1 per day) via a pay & display ticket or by mobile phone RingGo system.

** Daily payment via salary deduction will not be available in this car park

Student permit holders should adopt option 2
