Parking for carers

The Carer Scheme 2018/19 is now fully subscribed.

If your application was successful, we will contact you shortly regarding the issuing and collection of your permit.

The Carer Scheme has been established to support our flexible working policy, enabling carers to find a parking space if they arrive after 9am, when car parks are at their busiest. This scheme is for carers who have a child under the age of 12, or an older dependent relative with a disability or special needs.

Designated parking spaces are available before 10am on weekdays in the following locations:

  • P1 Science car park: 26 spaces
  • P3 Biology car park: 6 spaces
  • P4 Sussex House car park: 7 spaces
  • P7 Arts car park: 7 spaces

Carer spaces are not individually assigned, and are all openly reserved for all drivers with carer permits before 10am. These spaces are open for general use after this time. As a courtesy to other carers, please use general parking spaces if they are are available.

We have extended the Carer Scheme for 2018-19, by increasing the number of available spaces to 75.

If you have any questions, please visit our dedicated Carer's Scheme Frequently Asked Questions page, or send suggestions about this scheme to parkingpanel@sussex.ac.uk.
