Students and staff must display a validation permit when parking on campus. In addition, between 8am and 5pm on weekdays, students and staff must also display a scratch card (or a pay-monthly permit in the case of staff).
Validation permits and scratch cards can be obtained from the SIZ counters.
Scratch cards are £1.30 for students and £1.85 for staff.
Please be aware that parking regulations are in force on campus. Information on parking regulations can be found on Moodle or the Staff Intranet. Please note that not all students will be eligible for a validation permit.
Free parking is available at Bognor Regis in the London Road car park. You must park only in the area designated as for use by the University and display a validation permit.
Students who want to park overnight must apply for a separate permit. This must be displayed in addition to the regular validation permit.
A car sharing scheme is also in operation.
