Parking passes and permits

Students who are eligible to park on campus pay for a parking permit upfront; staff may pay by monthly salary deduction.

A pass to park is issued free of charge and allows you to park daily using scratch cards.

Applying for a pass or permit

The allocation of parking permits for the academic year 2017/18 is now fully subscribed. No further permit applications are being accepted.

Log on to Sussex Direct. Choose the link for the 'Personal' page, followed by 'Transport'. After you have added your vehicle details, enter your request for a pass or permit.

All information provided to the University for the registration of your car and to obtain a parking permit or pass must be true and accurate. Responsibility for updating the information rests with you. Falsifying of information may result in withdrawal of your right to park on campus.

Passes for staff (except associate tutors) will be delivered to the staff member's internal campus address. All associate tutors and students collect their parking permits at the York House Security control room.

Pre-paid permits (for staff on "zero hours" contracts and for students) are available about three days working after your request has been received; you will be advised when your permit is ready for collection.

Permits are issued to expire on the following 31 August.

Passes are issued for 12  months. The expiry date is printed on the pass.

If you experience a problem, contact the Service Centre: x7777.

All parking permits and passes remain the property of the University and may be rescinded by the Director of Estates Services at any time.
