2017/18 permits

From Monday 1 October 2017, permits for 2017/18 will need to be displayed in all parked cars.

(2016/17 permits will be invalid).

About the scheme

Staffordshire University has a limited number of spaces that are available on a first come, first served basis to car park permit holders at the City Campus in Stoke-on-Trent and the Centre of Excellence Stafford.  Parking at the Centre of Excellence Shrewsbury, Lichfield Campus and with partners is managed locally.

In 2011, car park management procedures were introduced on campus to respond to serious health and safety concerns.  The University chose to work with District Enforcement who remain our partner and who manage applications for car park permits as well as enforcement of parking charge notices.  Conditions apply in all University car parks, details of which are displayed on signage throughout the campus.

Car Parking Permits

Car park permit fees have been reviewed and for 2017/18, the fees will be as follows:

Full Staff Permit with up to 2 Cars £120
Full Student Permit with 1 Car £60
Student Resident on campus – Restricted to Clarice Cliff Car Park Only £60
Off-peak Permit [5pm – 9am] £40
Student Blue Badge Holder Free of Charge
Staff Blue Badge Holder uo to 2 Cars £120
Staff Blue Badge Holder Off-peak [5pm – 9am] £40

• Valid hospital parking permits will be accepted for on-campus parking for Health Sciences placement students
• Permit fees are non-refundable and there is no pro-rata option

A parking permit does not guarantee a space as the University has a limited number of spaces and is governed by planning law. If all University car parks are full then parking should be sought in alternative locations or consideration given to alternative means of travel. Details and support for sustainable travel can be found on the University website.
Anyone living within 2 miles of campus does not qualify for a permit unless there is evidence of exceptional circumstances.

2016/17 car park permits expire on 30th September, with the exception of permits issued to students joining the Faculty of Health Sciences in March.

Staff and Students can purchase a parking permit from the District Enforcement Website. On completion of the application process and following payment, permits will be sent to home addresses within 7 days.

To allow time for new and returning students to apply for their permits, the need for a permit to park on campus will be suspended during Welcome Week.

During the following fortnight, warning notices will be issued.

From Monday 1 October, 2016/17 permits will be invalid and 2017/18 permits will need to be displayed in all parked cars.

• Brindley Information Point

If you are visiting a staff member on campus then please email them directly asking for a visitor permit with your car registration plate, with this they might be able to provide you with a permit via email in advance of you arriving.
