Permit Parking (other)

If you work at the University on a permanent or fixed term contract but are not on the University payroll, you may still be eligible to apply for a parking permit. Eligible categories of staff include:

  • Agency staff
  • Staff working for wholly-owned subsidiary companies of the University
  • NHS staff (based within University premises on Campus)
  • Postgraduate Research students
  • Dental Hospital staff (PAYG Permits)
  • Staff working for external organisations based at University premises
    (This is not an exhaustive list)

We cannot accept applications from casual staff members.

The price of the permit largely depends on the nature of your employment status and/or your relationship to the University.

For further details or to make an application, please contact the permit office on

Please note that all permit fees for monthly permits are payable in person at the Permit Office, using a credit or debit card. Fees are payable in advance (minimum is 1 month’s parking). Unfortunately we are not able to offer payment by Direct Debit or Standing Order.

Postgraduate Research (PGDR) Permits:

PGDR students can choose between a monthly permit with an upfront cost of £25 per month (payable by card payment only at the Permit Office) or a pay as you go permit, which will be matched to Rate B (£0.15 per hour). We are unable to accept applications from Postgraduate Taught (PGDT) Students.

Dental Hospital Permits:

Staff at the Dental Hospital can apply for pay as you go permits only, which are charged on an hourly rate based on NHS Banding. The NHS banding has been matched (as closely as possible) to the University Grades and are priced as follows:

Dental Hospital Permit Holder Pricing
NHS Band Rate Hourly Charge
Bands 1, 2 and 3 A £0.10
Band 4 B £0.15
Band 5 C £0.20
Band 6 D £0.25
Bands 7 and 8a E £0.30
Bands 8b and 8c F £0.35
Bands 8d and 9 G £0.45

No permits are issued to undergraduate students, except in cases where students are disabled and referred to us via the Disability Advisory and Support Service.
