UWE Bristol's car parks are managed for the benefit of authorised staff, students and visitors to the campuses. We operate a permit system and certain car parks have restricted access rights.

All vehicles, except motorbikes, parked on UWE Bristol campuses between the core hours of 09:00 and 17:00 Monday-Friday must display parking validation or the Blue Badge in their vehicle windscreen or driver's window.

Car sharing

By sharing your car journey to UWE Bristol with someone else, you can save both time and money.

The University has developed special car parking for people who car share. The requirement to use these spaces is to have more than one person in your car and to display a valid parking permit.

We are looking to introduce this system at other campuses where demand exists. By car sharing:

  • There will be more convenient places to park at Frenchay.
  • You can save hundreds of pounds a year.
  • You are cutting congestion and reducing the impact of your car on the environment.

Register to find other people looking to car share on UWE Bristol's joinmyjourney, a dedicated site for UWE Bristol staff and students.
