Estates and Campus Services

Regulations

  • 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.
