Salary sacrifice and staff car parking

Staff car parking permits are available through a salary sacrifice scheme, which works in a similar way to other University salary sacrifice schemes currently in operation, i.e. childcare vouchers and cycle scheme. The salary sacrifice arrangement will work on an ‘opt-out’ basis. Full details on the scheme are available on the FAQs, or contact Payroll by email at

Carlisle United Football Club

Parking for staff and students is also available at Carlisle United Football Club on Warwick Road, a 12-minute walk from Fusehill Street campus.

Permits for this car park need to be purchased and displayed. This is not operated by the University nor the University’s parking Operator and local rules should be observed. Contact details are provided below.
