Car Parking

Car Park Closures

The University is investing in an exciting series of campus improvements over the next few years. The new Strathclyde Sport building is already under construction on Cathedral Street and the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) District Energy Scheme will commence installation of pipework in June this year.  This project will install large diameter hot water distribution pipework in the streets and land across much of the campus.  As such, the works will be highly visible and at times it will be disruptive. The new Teaching and Learning Building development will begin enabling works in the Colville and the Architecture buildings later in the year. 

 For more updates on CHP and related disruptions see CHP webpage

These construction works will have an impact on car parking at certain times.  Some car parks will be temporarily closed and some will be removed altogether to make way for these works.  Importantly, not all car parks will be closed at the same time and we will endeavour to accommodate staff within our other car parks during this period of disruption.

Car parks that will not be available to staff at certain times in 17/18 are listed below. More information on the specific dates of car parking closures and their re-opening will be provided in advance of the works and as they progress.

If you can, you may wish to make alternative arrangements for travel to and from work during this period.  We will continue to provide car parking spaces to those most in need and for staff and students with disabilities. 

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 2017-18 is £480 per annum for cars and £66 for motorcycles (£40 and £5.50 per month respectively), and will be deducted from salary in arrears. Applicants need to re-apply for a permit each year.

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 2017-18 has now closed.

Additional Parking Facilities

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 carparking@strath.ac.uk , 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.

StrathShare

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.

Additional Information

The regulations and criteria for the allocation of parking spaces on the John Anderson Campus are available in the Parking conditions.
