Trimester and Annual parking permits

Staff and students who regularly park on campus can purchase available Trimester or Annual parking permits. A limited number of permits are available during each period.

All staff and students are only able to purchase a parking permit from the campus that is listed as the "Primary Campus" on either their staff or student record. The Parking department cannot amend this record, however, can guide you to the processes or team that can.

Note: Purchase of a permit does not guarantee a carpark space will always be available. South Bank campus does not have parking areas for staff and students.
