Parking prices

We invest the income generate from campus car parking in improvements to our car parking facilities and campus infrastructure for the benefit of all staff and the wider University community. We will also continue to invest in sustainable transport.

See the links below for details of current prices and the new prices that will be in effect from 1 October 2016:

Parking permits

Our Workplace Parking scheme reduces the cost of parking for salaried staff. Under the scheme, the University will pay for your permit in return for a reduction in gross taxable pay, reducing the amount of tax and national insurance you pay, effectively lowering the cost of your parking permit. This is the same arrangement that many people currently use for pension and nursery costs.

Salaried staff on grades 3-9 will be given the option to join the Workplace Parking Scheme or to buy a permit at the gross price. Those ineligible to join the Workplace Parking scheme will have the opportunity to purchase a gross-priced car parking permit or use the pay and display car parking option.

Permit rates

There are four different rates for permits: Standard, Discount, Low and High. Through these we make sure that permit increases are banded according to earnings, and also make it possible to offer more affordable parking to Postgraduate Researchers and students eligible for a Student Car Parking Certificate.
