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

Open Parking manages parking enforcement under the Independent Parking Committee (IPC) guidelines and is a member of the Approved Operator Scheme. Any breach of UWE Bristol Parking Policy may result in a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) and further action that is deemed necessary in accordance with the IPC guidelines.

Staff permits

Staff can choose between an annual permit (0.45% of your gross salary) or a pay daily permit (£3 per day). Staff can apply for, update or cancel a permit using the online system (intranet link). All permits can now be printed as a PDF and will no longer be sent in the post.

Electric vehicles and charging on campus

There are electric charging points which can be used free of charge for anyone with a valid permit in car park 4 and 5 (near S Block) on Frenchay Campus. These marked bays are reserved for electric plug-in vehicles only. Installation of additional charging points are planned for Frenchay, Glenside and Bower Ashton campuses.

The fine print

As a member of staff, you can park in all unrestricted car parks. Please check parking signage for any restrictions.

Even if you have a permit, we do not guarantee access to individual spaces. Parking on campus is entirely at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for any vehicle theft or for any loss from or damage to vehicles parked on campus.

Booking a space for a visitor

Book a visitor car parking space using the online booking system (staff only).
