Student Parking

Car parks

Student parking is charged at £2 per day in all University car parks. There is also an option to park for up to 4 for £1 with no return the same day.

Staff are not permitted to park in the student Abandon Car Park on the corner of Cox Street, or the student area of the Mile Lane car park; these car parks are solely for the use of our students.

Motorcycle Parking

There is parking for motorbikes in the Multi-Storey Car Park, at Singer Hall, and at the front of the Alma Building. Parking for motorcycles is free, and does not require a parking permit.
