Car Parking Updates

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

 The application for parking spaces for academic year 2019-20 closed on 14 June.

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. You will need to re-apply for a permit each year.

Submit your application via the Pegasus application form. We can only accept paper applications from staff who do not have access to Pegasus.

There are around 430 parking spaces on campus. When we receive more applications than there are spaces, a ballot is run. We receive approximately 800 applications for parking each year. Unsuccessful applicants are added to the waiting list.

Costs for annual permits

  • Cars: £514.29 per annum (£42.85 per month)
  • Motorcycles: £70.69 (£5.89 per month)

The cost is deducted from salary in arrears.
