University Car Parking Policy 2013-14
Lancaster University has excellent bus services (up to 18 per hour) and good cycle routes. Most students find they do not need a car.
For transport information see: http://www.lancs.ac.uk/facilities/travel/
Access to parking permits is regulated to limited student categories to ensure that those students who do need a car are eligible for a car parking permit. Students without a permit should not park on any public highways surrounding the University campus in the interests of road safety and local residents.
Student Eligibility for Parking Permits
The Eligibility Application Form on Welfare Grounds 2013-14 is available under each of the four categories listed below.
You need to complete the Eligibility Application Form every year. If you already submitted the necessary evidence last year and it is still current and accurate for the category you are applying for this year, then we do not need you to resubmit the evidence again. If we find no record of this evidence or it is out of date we will email you to request you to submit as soon as possible.
You will have to wait until you receive your Lancaster University Email address which will be sent to you sometime early in September, before you can submit the Eligibility Application Form. In the mean time, you can start the process by collecting the evidence required for the category you are applying under. Once you’ve received your Lancaster University email address and have all the evidence required please send to the address below (also shown at the bottom of page one of the form.) Please don't send the evidence without the application form or vice versa.
You will receive an email to confirm that your application and evidence has been received
Applications under categories 1-4 below are processed by Student Wellbeing Services.
Applications under categories 5-8 are dealt with by the University Car Parking Office. (main reception building next to the chaplaincy centre)
A map of the parking zones can be viewed here
Students applying under category 1-4 should carefully read the guidelines and check if they fully meet the criteria they wish to apply under. Please ensure you have the necessary supporting evidence before submitting with your application form to the address below.
Student Welfare Car Parking Administrator
* Category 1: Varying permit lengths for this type of permit will apply to reflect the sometimes ‘temporary’ nature of the mobility impediment. This temporary approach to permit eligibility should provide a fairer and more appropriate way to manage the need based on temporary mobility or sickness issues. This is to be addressed through the issuing of termly permits.
Any student wishing to make a complaint about the student car parking policy and/or make suggestions for further improvement can email the Facilities Division at firstname.lastname@example.org. All complaints / suggestions will be logged for future policy reviews.
