Changes to student parking

To promote sustainability on campus and implement a charging structure that is fair to all, charges for student parking have increased for the first time since 2007. 

These changes will be implemented from Monday 1 April so please be aware of these if you’re planning on driving onto campus. 

Monday - Friday  

The daily charge for student permit holders will be £2.50 chargeable from 08:00 – 18:00 in car parks available to students. 

Access to campus car parks after 18:00 will be free of charge. Students who aren’t eligible for a parking permit can apply for free out of hours access only after 18:00, by emailing   

Saturday and Sunday  

The flat rate fee for all students permit holders and non-permit holders will be £2.50 per day 08:00 – 18:00.  Free access after 18:00.   

Please note, Blue Badge users can still get free parking. 

Visit the student parking intranet page for full details including eligibility.  

Alternative travel  

For alternative ways to travel onto campus, we recommend commuting using public transport. For local travel, check out the Transport for West Midlands website and our Sustainable Travel intranet page where you can find more information on discounts available by bus.  

For further journeys, you may want to check out travelling by coach. Students can get 15% off at National Express and 10% off at Megabus.
