How to apply

Email carparking@manchester.ac.uk and ask to be placed on the waiting list for car park B, D, E or F.

Alternatively visit the permit office with your staff ID card to have it activated for access to Charles Street car park (Car Park A). There is no waiting list for permits here at present.

Part time staff and infrequent car park users

If you access the car parks a maximum of three times per week, it may be that the part-time pass we sell ("pay as you go" pass) is more suitable for you.

This costs £26.25 (£26.50 from 1 February 2017) and allows 21 entries to the car park. These are available for car parks A (Charles Street), D (Booth Street West multi-storey) and F (Dilworth Street).

21 hit cards are subject to a waiting list and the application process is exactly the same as for full time permits – just let us know that it is a part-time and not a full-time permit you need. Once you have reached the top of the list you will be able to visit the Permit Office to purchase a pass. A maximum of seven cards is allowed per year.

Please note that payment for these passes is by card or cheque only as we cannot accept cash.
