Will I be guaranteed a parking space if I buy a permit?Will I be guaranteed a parking space if I buy a permit?​In common with many universities, parking on campus is very limited. We are unable to guarantee you a space if you choose to drive to the University and recommend and promote the use of sustainable transport alternatives. If you have no practical alternative to driving, we recommend allowing extra time to find a space when travelling to the University. If you are unable to find a space on campus, there is overflow parking available at Yarnbury Rugby Club – you will need to purchase a pay and display ticket from the University to use here.<br>LTU Authoring

A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?​Parking fines are issued when people park in an irresponsible way that either restricts parking for someone else, or represents a danger to safety (for example by blocking access routes for emergency services). Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues. Fines will also be issued if a parking permit or pay and display ticket is not clearly displayed, or if someone parks in a car sharing space before 11am. <br>LTU Authoring
