New Government legislation came into force on 1 October 2012 which prohibited any vehicle being clamped on private land. As a result, the University looked at alternative enforcement options which would prevent cars illegally parking on campus.
Portsmouth City Council (PCC) was contracted to provide the University’s traffic enforcement and also to ensure vehicles parked on University land adhere to the University’s parking regulations.
Staff and students displaying a valid University permit in their windscreen can continue to park within appropriate bays as normal and will not be affected by this change. However, anyone not displaying a valid permit/scratch card or parked illegally will be issued with a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) payable to Portsmouth City Council.
A staff/student parking permit allows the holder to park a vehicle in authorised spaces on University property but the University cannot guarantee that a space will be available at all times.
A valid staff/student parking permit must be clearly displayed on the windscreen of any vehicle used when it is brought on to University property.
Vehicles and their contents are left on University property at the owner’s risk.
PCC reserves the right to remove, at the owner’s expense, any vehicle parked on UoP property without valid vehicle tax.
The parking of private caravans, mobile home vehicles and trailers on University property is not allowed.
Permit holders must comply with all and any additional regulations and directions issued by the University or its agents from time to time.
It is the responsibility of the permit holder to inform the University of any change to their vehicle or if they no longer qualify for a permit.
It is the responsibility of the permit holder to immediately inform the Mobility Section of any loss, theft or damage to their permit in order for a replacement to be issued.
Staff/students who no longer require a permit must inform and return their permit to the Car Parking Office.
The University reserves the right to refuse any application for a parking permit.
Any permit holder may park in a designated visitors’ area as long as they remove their car 30 minutes prior to the arrival time indicated on the A4 post. If a visitor space has not been used after 1 hour of the stated arrival time, the bay reverts to being an available space.
Parking spaces cannot be reserved for members of staff or students.
Staff inviting visitors to the University must make them aware of the parking regulations.
Disabled permit holders must also display their Blue Badges.
