Your University Questions, Answered.
Are there car parking facilities around campus and accommodation?
Parking spaces on campus are very limited, so if you're able to, we would always suggest choosing another option such as cycling or taking public transport. UEA continually invests in alternative travel options for students, staff and visitors to campus, agreeing discounts with local travel companies, and housing our own on-site bike sales and repair shop, Dr Bike.
Students who want to drive to campus from slightly further afield can make use of the Costessey Park and Ride 511 Konect Bus service. You can park at the Costessey Park and Ride and then use the Konect Bus Service 511 to UEA - this is free for UEA staff, students and visitors. It's around a 10-20 minute bus journey depending on what time of day you're travelling.
Students can park on campus after 2pm in the Main Car Park, paying the visitor parking fees, but its worth mentioning that vehicles can't be left here overnight.
If you normally live in UEA accommodation, but you need a car to get to a placement as part of your course, you may be eligible for a parking permit for the duration of your placement, which is charged at a daily rate.
If a student has 'exceptional and extenuating welfare circumstances', they may be allowed to park on campus - this would be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
The UEA Travel and Transport web pages offer a lot more information about parking and travel for both students and visitors to campus.
