Parking at the university
The university encourages sustainable travel to our campuses wherever possible.
For all users, on-campus parking is limited, and spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. Spaces cannot be reserved, and a space is not guaranteed.
Make sure to check local signage when using university car parks.
Visiting the university
If you are visiting the university, your University of Brighton host will need to organise a parking e-permit for you before you arrive. Make sure your e-permit has been confirmed before parking on campus.
Depending on the reason for your visit, you may need to pay for your parking.
- Guests who are invited on campus by the university to provide a service do not need to pay. For example, guest speakers, lecturers, tutors, contractors.
- Visitors coming on campus for job interviews, meetings or similar will need to pay. Payment is £2 payable at the parking payment machines on campus, by phone or via the JustPark app.
Your university host will be able to confirm specific details. On-campus parking is not guaranteed.
If you are thinking about applying to Brighton, and attending one of our on-campus events, parking will be free for you during your event. We’ll send you the details by email when we confirm your booking.
You must have booked a place at an event to be able to access free parking (where it is available).
Loading and unloading / Pick up and drop off
Thirty minutes are allowed for loading or unloading, pick up or drop off, including taxis. You do not need an e-permit.
Make sure you are parked in a general parking bag, or designated bay if you are eligible, and that you aren’t causing an obstruction. Check local signage for parking terms and conditions.
To ensure you are not issued with a parking charge notice, please do not spend more than 30 minutes on site.
Parking for students is free, providing you have a valid e-permit. You’ll be able to apply for an e-permit once you are fully enrolled on your course. Find out more on the Student News blog.
