Demand for car parking at the University often outweighs supply. We therefore ask all potential parking permit applicants to explore alternative travel options before making an application for a parking permit.

Car Parking Arrangements
The University does not automatically issue parking permits to those who wish to drive. Undergraduate and postgraduate taught students are required to use Costessey Park & Ride Services
; Service 604 for the main campus or Service 10 for the Edith Cavell Building. Permits issued to undergraduate or postgraduate taught students prior to academic year 2011/12 (except those issued via the Student Appeals Panel; please see note below) are not valid, immaterial to the expiry date.
Postgraduate research students and members of staff who are not resident on campus or live beyond a mile of the University will be provided with a permit. If you qualify for membership of the scheme please click here for an application form
. Applicants who are not on UEA payroll should also complete and return a Direct Debit Form
. Please ensure you complete all sections of the forms and supply any additional information to avoid having your application returned to you unprocessed.
Where an undergraduate or postgraduate-taught student is able to demonstrate exceptional and extenuating welfare circumstances the Student Parking Appeals Panel may grant permission for the student to park on the Main Campus or in the Edith Cavell Car Park (details below).
Those who were provided with a permit following a successful appeal in previous years should check the renewal date on the permit; in most cases permits will only be valid for 12 months from the date of issue and a further appeal will be required to extend the expiry date of the permit.
Appeals Process for Students
If you do not meet the Parking Permit Scheme criteria but can demonstrate you have exceptional and extenuating personal circumstances which may entitle you to a car parking permit. To make an appeal please complete a Student Parking Appeals Panel Form 2013
. Please read the guidelines (provided with the form) before making your application; answer all the questions relevant to your application and include any supporting information required (the form reminds you as to what information is required). If the form is not completed correctly and/or supporting evidence is missing the Panel cannot consider your submission.
Please return your form to the Travel & Transport Team, Estates Building. Please clearly mark the envelope for the attention of Appeals Panel. If your appeal is unsuccessful forms and evidence (where not returned) will be destroyed.

Please use this form to notify the Travel & Transport Team, Estates Building of any changes to your vehicle or address.

Managing the Car Parks
A Civil Penalty Notice (CPN) will be issued to drivers who are not members of the University’s car park permit scheme who breach the University’s car parking rules. These drivers will be liable for a £70 charge, reduced to £35 if paid within fourteen days. This is a change from the current system of wheel clamping but traffic duties will continue to be carried out by our own UEA Security Team and not an outside agency.
Members of the University’s Car Park Permit Scheme will not receive Civil Penalty Notices. Any infringements by permit holders will continue to be managed by a warning and education system
