Staff Parking


All staff need to display a blue University Parking Permit when they park in University Staff Car Parks – even when they have used their staff ID card to enter the car park or pay for parking.

Please be aware that due to current COVID-19 restrictions Portal House and Alan Berry are closed until further notice, whilst Alma operates on a low face-to-face interaction basis. If you are a new member of staff requiring a staff parking permit, please email

Car parks


Staff parking is charged at £3 per day in all University car parks. There is an option to park for up to 4 hours in the Multi-Storey car park for £1 with no return the same day. You will need to present your Staff ID card at the card reader next to the ticket machines to purchase a ticket. Please ensure that you display your blue University Parking Permit as well as your valid Pay & Display ticket.
