Proposed car parking permit charges
To offset the cost of car parking provision across the university estate, a decision has been taken to introduce car parking permit charges.
Charges will be introduced from Monday 23 September 2019 and apply to the following campuses and halls:
- City (Grand Parade)
- Phoenix Halls (Residences)
- Moulsecoomb Place Halls (Residences)
- Varley Park (Residences)
Proposed charges have been benchmarked and would bring the university into line with the majority of higher education institutions in the country, as well aligning with the university sustainability aims to help reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality.
Recognising the wide variety of staff and student circumstances, we have produced an equality impact review which has been used to inform the proposals.
We would like your feedback on the charging proposals to ensure they are as fair, equitable and considered as possible.
A consultation will run between 16 May and 6 June.
It is proposed that students can pay for parking permits in a number of ways. Please review the list below to see how the charges would affect you.
There are three options for students:
- Pay for four hours – a charge of £1.00 (payable by app or telephone)
- Pay per day – a charge of £1.30 (payable by app or telephone)
- Pay annually – a charge of £125 (payable via a ‘one off’ card payment)

This document will be kept updated throughout the course of the project.
