Alternative Travel Advice
Many colleagues have taken advantage of the personal travel planning advice offered by Dr Sandra Lee, the University's Sustainable Travel Officer. Please do get in touch with her if you have not already done so by email at email@example.com or on 0116 252 2306. The University is continuing to pursue a range of alternatives to single car occupancy and further details and notifications will be provided as they become available.
Not everyone can be issued with a parking permit as there are not enough parking spaces on campus for all staff. The University's commitment to reducing its carbon footprint also means that alternative transport and car-sharing is actively encouraged. Within these constraints, the University issues parking permits fairly.
Types of parking permit
Staff who travel by car to any University site, including hospital sites, can apply for one of three different types of parking permit: Full permit, flexi-permit or car share permit.
There are also specific permits available to Blue Badge holders and motorcyclists.
How the scheme works
All staff can apply for a permit, using the online form or a printed form. All applications will be considered as they are received. Payment is deducted from your salary if you are on University Payroll, otherwise you will need to pay by cash or cheque.
All applications for parking permits are judged against certain criteria on a points system. These criteria include medical conditions, caring/parental responsibilities, business-related car use and access to alternative transport options.
Who doesn't need a permit?
Parking permits are not required if you wish to use the Welford Road pay-and-display or for public car parks or street-parking. Of course no permit is required if you walk, cycle or use public transport.
How much are permits?

- Flexi permit prices for 2014 are 50p each scratchcard valid for 1 days parking, sold in books of 5 at £2.50 per book.
