Falmer campus car park

Car parking and permit enforcement now in place (2022/23)

A reminder that parking arrangements are in place for the 2022-23 academic year in line with the University’s Car Park and Permit Application Policy.   

Student parking remains free for the 2022/23 academic year with a valid E-Permit. If you park without a valid E-Permit, you may receive a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) of £60. 

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 restrictions are in place at all times as follows: 

  • 7am –5pm Monday – Friday (core hours) vehicles must have a valid E-Permit AND where applicable a valid payment session, to park. 
  • At all other times (5.01pm – 6.59am) vehicles must have a valid E-Permit OR a valid payment session, to park.

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.  

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