Members of staff may apply for a parking permit to be eligible for reduced parking charges and to use staff car parks. Once registered with the University's car parking system, all permit holders are required to display their permit on their dashboard at all times when parked across campus. Any member of staff who is not a permit holder must pay visitor parking fees at all times.
Demand for car parking at the University often outweighs supply: please explore alternative travel options before applying for a permit.
Applying for a permit
University members of staff are eligible to apply for a permit:
- The University's Vehicle Regulations should be read before applying
- Eligible members of staff must complete a parking permit application form. Any applicants who are not on UEA payroll should also complete and return a Direct Debit Form
We aim to process applications within 3 working days however please allow 10 days during peak times (start of Autumn semester).
Parking charges for permit holders
Parking for permit holders at the university is subject to a daily charge* linked to salary with "bands" to reflect levels of income. Charges will be automatically deducted from your salary (UEA payroll members) or taken from your bank account via direct debit.
Motorcycles are allowed to park free of charge, but must not be parked in vehicle parking bays.
|Band||Approx. FT Salary||Charge / day||< 4 hours|
*Charges are in place every day with the exception of Saturdays, Sundays, concessionary days, Bank & Public Holidays. Please note parking for 4 hours or less attracts a 50% discount.
Swipe card access
Once a permit is issued your campus card will be programmed to provide swipe card access to barriered car parks. Remember to use your campus card on entry and exit (even if barriers are open) for the correct amount to be debited. The parking fee will be automatically debited from salary or bank account via direct debit.
Additional Parking For Permit Holders
The ‘Park and Stride’ or Triangle car park is approximately a 15 minute walk from the center of the main campus (approximately 0.8 miles) and 10 minutes from the hospital and Edith Cavell building. The map to the right displays the walk from the Triangle site to Chancellors drive through the Colney playing fields.
Access to the car park is available via permit holder swipe card access only
The car park is charged at a reduced rate as an incentive to park, at £1 for a full day and 50p for less than four hours. Users will need to swipe into the site using their campus card, and then *purchase a ticket at the pay and display machine or from 15th May make payment online, over the phone or via your mobile. The service will enable drivers to pay for a day on arrival or book and pay for a whole week or longer in advance.
Please note that your valid UEA vehicle permit must be displayed alongside your pay & display ticket / ticket bought through the online Parkonomy system.
*This system is necessary as the charges for this car park are not in line with current swipe card charges in other car parks.
There are 300 spaces available at the site. Occasionally these will be shared with the John Innes Centre conference team.
Change of Vehicle
If you replace your vehicle a new permit is free of charge as long as you return your existing permit (£10 admin fee is charged otherwise).
Lost / Stolen Permits
Lost or stolen permits will be replaced upon payment of a fee of £10.00
