Parking passes and permits

All parking permits and passes remain the property of the University and may be rescinded at any time.

The Waiting List for staff campus parking 2018/19 is now open.

Staff can apply for the Waiting List by submitting an application form.

Parking permits are issued to staff and eligible students who pay upfront or via monthly salary deduction. Displaying a valid permit in the windscreen of your vehicle entitles you park in campus car parks. Permits must be displayed foil-side up with the expiry date visible.

A pass to park is issued free of charge to staff. This must be displayed together with a valid daily scratchcard, purchased in books of ten from certain campus outlets.

Please take care not to misplace your permit, such as when changing between vehicles or submitting your car for maintenance, as you must physically display it when parked on campus to avoid receiving a ticket.

University Payrolled Staff

With the exception of registered disabled drivers, payment for permits is made via monthly salary deduction at the rate of £30 per month, at a total cost of £360 per year. Pass to park scratchcards will continue to be available in books of ten at the rate of £2.50 per day for 2018/19.

Staff can apply by logging onto Sussex Direct. Select the “Personal” tab and navigate to “Transport”. Please check that the information on your vehicle(s) is up to date, and fill out the form as instructed. Your permit or pass will be delivered to your pigeonhole or campus address.
