Car parking

Students with a local authority issued blue badge can park in any of the yellow hatched bays which are situated around the University. Parking is available on a first come first serve basis in these spaces.

If you do not have a blue badge, but you have a disability which requires a parking space on campus, please speak to your Disability Adviser about whether you can apply for a parking permit, which would give you access to a limited number of parking bays on campus on a first come first serve basis. If you are unsure who your Disability Adviser is, please contact Disability Services

Whether you have a blue badge or not, please contact your Disability Adviser or Disability Services central email to request a parking application form. If you are eligible, you will be issued with a parking permit and you will also be able to gain access through the barriers at the entrances to the car parks. 

Please note, parking permits must be displayed in your windscreen at all times when parking on campus.
