Parking: Permits

Changes to where you can park - please check the where you can park page before purchasing a permit.

Staff and postgraduate researchers

If you work on campus or you're a postgraduate researcher there are parking permit options available for you. Working on campus isn't just limited to salaried staff - Unitemps, VAM workers and those on an external payroll also qualify.

Residential Life Team and resident staff

If you're a member of the Residential Life Team or you're a member of staff living on campus there are special permit arrangements available:


Societies and sports clubs

Student societies and sports clubs in some cases have access to parking permits to support their activities. Send any enquiries you have about sports permits to sports@warwicksu.com, or any enquiries about society permits to societies@warwicksu.com.


Students

If you're a student, staff permits are not available to you, and we strongly advise you not to drive to campus and instead to walk, cycle or use public transport. Local bus services serve the main off-campus student accommodation areas in Coventry and Leamington Spa, with direct, frequent services. These services also connect to local popular destinations, train stations and Birmingham International Airport.

If you do need to bring your car to campus, parking is available to students in pay and display car parks. You can pay for this via pay and display tickets or flexi-pay books of scratch cards.

If you're a disabled driver with a blue badge please see our disabled parking page.

In exceptional circumstances, where it is essential for you to drive and you meet the relevant criteria with supporting evidence, you may be considered for a student parking certificate. If approved, Student Parking Certificates can be purchased online and must be displayed to allow parking in any of the general car parks:
