Non Blue Badge Holders
Students who have a disability but do not have a Blue Badge can apply for an Extenuating Circumstances parking permit so they can park their car on campus or at the University halls on residences.
Only those students who have a mobility difficulty or long term disability which affects their ability to use the Park and Ride facility will be awarded a permit.
An Extenuating Circumstances permit does not entitle you to park in the accessible bays - just the student car parks
To apply for a permit:
- Make an appointment or come to a disability drop-in with Student Wellbeing to discuss your request for a permit with a Disability Adviser. You will be asked to provide your reasons for requesting a permit and to provide evidence of your disability which shows why you are unable to use the park and ride. You can then
- Complete an application form online
Blue badge holders
Students who already have a blue badge do not need to have their application authorised by a Disability Adviser, but do need to complete an online application to obtain a parking permit. You will be asked to upload a copy of your blue badge.
Please ensure when you park in an identified accessible bay that you clearly display your blue badg.
