Parking for students with a disability or extenuating circumstances

Some students may be entitled to apply for an extenuating circumstances permit, due to the nature of their disability, or if they are a carer or have young children.

*Please note*

Extenuating Circumstance permits on College Lane allow students to use Staff car parks also. If you are not eligible, you can still register with our Hozah website and use the Student car park at the Forum with out an Extenuating Circumstance permit.

Parking on de Havilland campus is Extenuating Circumstance permit holders only.

Blue Badge holders 

Students who have a Blue Badge do not need to apply for an extenuating circumstances permit. Instead, you need to apply for your Blue Badge discount via the Hozah website by uploading a copy of your Blue Badge and selecting the Blue Badge discount option (£1 for a full day).  You can book an appointment with the Student Wellbeing team if you need any help. 

Please ensure that when you park in an accessible bay, you clearly display your Blue Badge.

Permits for Medical or Disablility reasons (non Blue Badge)

If you have a disability or difficulty which means you are not able to use the Park and Ride facility, please contact Student Wellbeing to discuss your requirements. Disabled extenuating circumstances permit holders must register to be eligible for the reduced £1 day rate.  

Please note that an extenuating circumstances permit does not entitle you to park in the accessible bays.  Designated areas will be confirmed by the Wellbeing team. Permits must be displayed at all times while parking on campus.
