Occasional users may purchase scratch card permits at a cost of £3.00 per permit and these must be purchased in multiples of 5 to a maximum of 50 permits per annum. Permits are available to members of staff and students who use a motor vehicle, attend for work or study on an infrequent basis (one day a week or less) or occasionally hire vehicles for business purposes and do not require one of the regular permits. Occasional user permits can only be issued where spaces are available and may be suspended when car parks become overcrowded.
Occasional users will not have card access through the barriers they are required to buzz through to security in which they will be asked for their 6 digit permit number which is on the front of the occasional user permit. Once they have entered the car parks and found a designated bay they will be required to display a permit showing the correct date and with the matching number plate written on.
Occasional users are only available to those who live outside of a 2 mile radius to the University and this will be checked on by the car parking department. If you are inside a 2 mile radius you will be refused the permits and given a refund.
Please note you are buying permits in batches of 5 at a cost of £15 per batch limited to a maximum of 4 batches (20 permits) per transaction.
Please read your confirmation email for advice on how to collect your permits.
