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 08:30 and 17:00 Monday-Friday must display parking validation or a local authority Blue Badge in their vehicle windscreen or driver's window.
