Parking facilities available to students living on campus

Residential Parking

Who can park?

Parking on campus is extremely limited; therefore you must have a permit to park. 

Residential parking is separate to the rest of the parking on campus and is only available to student living in halls on the College Lane Campus.   Due to the limited space parking is only granted to those that meet certain eligibility criteria, where a car is essential for medical reasons or a necessity to complete your programme of study.  Further/full details about residential parking can be found here.

Please note that residential student parking is not available at the de Havilland Campus. 

If you are not living in Halls of Residence please look at the eligibility criteria for Commuting Student Parking 

Is parking free?

No,  if your eligibility is approved, you will then be allowed to purchase a permit for the duration of the academic year. 

Do I get an allocated space?


Your permit allows you to park in any of the residences car parks on College Lane (purple zone). Please don’t park anywhere else as you may get a parking charge notice.

When should I apply?

Most years residential parking applications can be made from July before the academic year starts. In order to make an application, you need to have:

  • Accepted a room on College Lane
  • Your evidence at hand to upload into the application

What happens if I don't meet the eligibility criteria?

If you don’t have a parking permit, you won’t be able to park on campus.

We ask that you do not bring a car to the University campus, it is written into your contract that without a permit a car is prohibited. 

Please be advised that parking in the residential areas around the University is restricted, unfair to our neighbours and may result in disciplinary action.
