If you’re a current E-Permit holder

If you have an existing, valid E-Permit, this will be rolled over to the new academic year. There is no requirement to reapply, and parking will remain free of charge for the academic year 2022/23.

If you do NOT have an E-Permit

You can apply for an E-Permit using the application process. Please note that permits are limited and will continue be allocated on the basis of our parking criteria (pdf).

Parking availability

Please note that parking spaces are limited on campus and being allocated an E-Permit does not guarantee that a parking space will be available on any specific day. Parking at our Falmer campus experiences particularly high demand. E-Permit holders can park at any university car park and travel to the campus by other means, for example, parking at the Moulsecoomb Parking facility and catching a public bus, (which run approximately every 6 minutes along the Lewes Road) or the UB1 during term time, to Falmer. Parking demand will be closely monitored at the start of term.

Parking arrangements

Parking restrictions are enforced on all sites on a 24/7 basis throughout the year by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras operated by the University’s parking management contractor, UK Car Park Management (UK CPM).

Not having a University E-Permit or payment session could result in you receiving a Parking Charge Notice (PCN).  Notices/emails displayed in cars whilst waiting for an E-Permit to be approved are not accepted in lieu of an E-Permit.

Vehicles must park within marked parking bays which include, white-lined bays or block coloured bays. Parking outside the bays may result in a PCN being issued.  For white-lined bays, all vehicle wheels must fit within the floor markings that delineate each parking bay. In the case of a coloured bay, you must be parked reasonably within the coloured bay, if one or more whole wheel is outside the coloured bay a PCN may be issued.

If you receive a PCN, appeals should be made following the instructions on the notice and made directly to UK CPM.

Vehicles are not permitted to exceed a maximum stay and must park within the following restrictions:

  • Monday to Friday – 24 hours, no return is permitted within 3 hours
  • Saturday to Sunday – 36 hours, no return is permitted within 3 hours.

Terms and conditions for parking can be found on signage in all car parks and must be adhered to at all times.

Contact for general enquiries or appeals.
