Who can park on campus

The easiest way to determine if you are eligible to park on campus as a student is to consult our quick reference guide.

Consult our reference guide for students for more information.


The following groups of students are eligible to apply for a parking permit on campus:

  • Students with families resident on campus
  • Registered disabled students (who are exempt from the permit fee)
  • Students with special needs (as defined by Student Support)

Applications to park on campus will be considered by the parking panel for the following criteria:

  • by students with caring responsibilities
  • and by students for whom public transport is not a viable option 

Students with a temporary mobility issue may apply via Student Support for a temporary permit to park on campus (standard parking fees apply).

No other student parking will be available on campus. However, for 2018-19 only, all students will be eligible to apply to park at the Bridge car park, by permit only - available at a full cost of £360 per year. Limited spaces are available. Parking in the Bridge car park is not available on B&HAFC match fixture days.


All staff are eligible to apply for a permit to park on campus.

Staff may be eligible for Exceptional Circumstances, or other conditions.

You can check this via our reference guide for staff.


Motorcycles must be parked in spaces designated for motorcycle parking. To park on campus, motorcycle owners must register their vehicle with the Transport office by contacting us at
