Permits for Students
A limited number of parking permits are available to students who commute daily to the University.
Students are only eligible to apply for a parking permit if:
- they reside in the Langstone Student Village, these permits are for Langstone car park only and vehicles displaying these permits are not permitted on main campus.
- they are registered disabled badge holders (proof is required and these permits will be issued free of charge),
- they have other mobility difficulties (such applications would be considered by a University review panel and supporting evidence from a GP or relevant medical professional would be required),
- they have restricted public transport from their home address, which must be outside the PO1-PO6 areas (a covering letter is required with the application).
Students outside these categories will not be considered due to the limited parking available.
In the academic year 2017/2018, the charge for a student car parking permit is £75.
Applying for a 2017/2018 permit
Applications for a annual car parking permit should be submitted by 1 November 2017 (with the exception of disabled Blue Badge holders and Langstone).
Semester permits are also available for students that may require reduced parking each Academic term. The cost of a semester permit will be £35
