Car Parking

Car Park Closures

The Taylor Street car park is closed for the duration of Wolfson Building refurbishment works. 

 Our two new parking wardens, Jim and Martin, are working hard to improve our car parking experience. 

Staff Permits

All staff are entitled to apply for a parking permit. Where the number of applicants exceeds the available spaces a ballot will be run. Unsuccessful applicants will be added to the waiting list. The cost of an annual permit for 2019-20 is £514.29 per annum for cars and £70.69 for motorcycles (£42.85 and £5.89 per month respectively), and will be deducted from salary in arrears. Applicants need to re-apply for a permit each year. Applicants should be aware that we receive in the region of 750-800 applications for parking each year for approximately 430 spaces on campus.

Applications must be submitted via the Pegasus application form. Paper applications will only be accepted from staff who do not have access to Pegasus. The application form for academic year 2019-20 will open on the 10th of May, and close on the 14th of June.

Please not that the issue of Visitor Permits is currently under review.

Departments may make an application for a temporary Visitor's Permit to allow a visitor to the University access to a parking space. Please note that the granting of a permit will depend on the availability of spaces at any time. A limited number of car parking spaces for disabled visitors are available in the Taylor Street, Graham Hills internal and external and Richmond Street car parks.

Visitor permits can be applied for by sending an email to , giving at least 48 hours notice. Please include the following information in your request: applicant's details and department, visitor's details, date, time and duration of the visit.


Space Sharing

Parking permit applicants who wish to form a group with colleagues in order to share a parking space should note that both (or all) members of staff agreeing to share must apply separately, mentioning partners. Strathclyde has recently established a ‘Strathshare’ site for staff wishing to identify a potential sharer for parking. Further details and instructions on how to register to find a potential sharer can be found in the StrathShare help document, while the Strathshare site can be found at the StrathShare SharePoint site.

Please note that liaising with potential sharers is the responsibility of the applicants themselves. Estates Services takes no active part in arranging such shares, nor in the resolution of any possible disputes which arise between sharers.
