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.
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
Change of Details?
Please complete a permit change of details form to let us know about changes to your vehicle or address.
Parking scratch cards can be purchased by eligible permit holders, for use in non-barriered car parks and roadside bays.
Where to purchase
Scratch cards can be purchased in full day or half days sheets, each containing 16 days of parking. To purchase please bring your campus card to The Lodge or to Registry reception where payment will be added to your parking account. Please note we are unable to send scratch cards through the post.
Any unused scratch cards can be returned to The Lodge for a refund: please complete the Scratchcard Refunds form. Please do not send scratch cards for refund in the mail. Credit for unused, returned scratchcards will be applied to parking accounts, unless otherwise specified in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
